Astley Gilbert of Toronto, Ontario, has acquired a new Komori GL 840 perfecting press, purchased through Komcan Inc. The new press will include a tower coater, HUV and UV curing capabilities, and extended delivery.

Other features of Astley Gilbert’s Komori GL 840 will include A-APC plate changing, which the press maker explains allows a user to simultaneously change plates on all eight units in less than 90 seconds. The GL 840 also includes Komori’s PQA-S dual camera system for inspection of both sides of the sheet.

“Simply put we needed to be able to offer our clients the highest quality at faster speeds,” said Ron Verbaas of Astley Gilbert. “The ability to deliver completely dry 4/4 sheets in one pass even on synthetic substrates made this choice a no brainer.”


Astley Gilbert provides a range of sheetfed, digital, visual display and online services.
