Komori America is introducing an eight-colour Lithrone G37P perfector capable of one-pass double-sided printing, designed with a compact body size.

The press can be equipped with a range of options, including Komori’s proprietary H-UV or H-UV L (LED) curing systems. As well, the optional PQA-S Print Quality Assessment System can be added to inspect each sheet for defects and continuously adjust ink keys designed to maintain consistent colour throughout the run—all at maximum speed.

The PQA-S works in conjunction with the PDC-SX Spectral Print Density Control by combining automatic register functions with analysis of print characteristics, such as grey balance, dot gains and Delta E.

The perfecting mechanism of the new 37-inch press does not require any gripper change as the sheet is flipped; instead, the entire gripper mechanism rotates after taking the tail of the sheet from the vacuum cylinder, explains Komori.  This design adds stability and reliability when turning the sheet, boasting a “huge reduction” in maintenance requirements.

Komcan of Georgetown, Ont., is the Canadian dealer for Komori presses.
