Komori Introduces Enthrone Press
Komori Corporation will be revealing what it refers to as a budget-friendly 29-inch press, called the Enthrone, at IPEX this year. The press will come in 2-, 4-, or 5-colour configurations and run at speeds of up to 13,000 sheets per hour.
Komori says it has extracted the core features of its Lithrone S29 series machines
and consolidated them into a “budget-conscious, compact design.”
The machine features a semi-automatic plate-changing system, which employs a bender-less plate clamp (removing the need for plate bending). The Enthrone will also have an automatic cleaning system which both shortens blanket cleaning time and improves the machine’s ecological footprint.
IPEX will also see the launch of Komori’s H-UV system, which the company touts as an innovative UV printing solution involving its in-house developed UV lamps (which have a CO2 footprint one-quarter of traditional UV lamp systems) and high-sensitivity UV inks.
