Komori introduces ‘offset-on-demand’ with new Lithrone G40

Komori America Corp. has launched its latest press, the 16,500-sph Lithrone G40. It combines many of the state-of-the-art technologies from the Lithrone SX40 with the award-winning features of the Lithrone S40 to deliver a best-in-class machine that meets the demands of today’s fast-paced printing marketplace. With Komori’s revolutionary KHS-AI technology at its core, the Lithrone G40 is the backbone of Komori’s innovative “Offset-on-Demand” concept.

Lithrone G40 features include:

  • Suction Tape Feeder Board equipped with one belt in the center and no brushers or rollers ensures stable, highly accurate feeding regardless of paper weight.
  • With KHS-AI’s self learning function, paper waste is significantly improved reducing cost and environmental impact.
  • Automatic blanket washing system with pre-soaked cloth for blanket and impression washer cleaning.
  • The new full-APC (automatic plate changing) is not only faster than previous systems, it employs the use of a benderless clamp, eliminating the need to bend plates and making plate discharge and feeding more efficient.

“We are very excited that we can now take the KHS-AI-equipped Lithrone G40 and marry it with our newly introduced H-UV system,” says Doug Schardt, product manager for Komori. “The entire system is very efficient. With KHS-AI, you can make your first pull at 20 sheets, dramatically reducing makeready waste, then print the job on the H-UV equipped Lithrone G40, and literally produce a high quality, bindery-ready job in minutes. It is the perfect storm of productivity.”

During the demonstration at Komori America’s headquarters, a 16-page signature was printed on the Lithrone G40 using H-UV, and then immediately sent to bindery for cutting, folding and stitching on a Horizon Stitchliner 5500.  The Stitchliner 5500 is an innovative saddlestitching system which incorporates flat sheet collating, scoring, folding, stitching and three-knife trimming in-line.  “We produced 500 completely finished 16-page, high quality brochures in just under 25 minutes,” says Schardt.
