Simpson Print Purchases 6-colour Komori
A new Komori LS640 with coater is to be installed on the plant floor of Simpson Print in early September, as the commercial and specialty printer based in Bloomingdale, Ontario, continues its growth.
Getting ready to celebrate its 50th year of operation in 2013, Simpson Print now occupies over 70,000 square feet of production space. The company currently runs two 40-inch sheetfed presses in addition to a large UV screen-printing department with six presses up to 48 x 96 inches.
The new 40-inch Komori LS640, purchased through Mississauga-based K-North Inc. (Komori dealer in Ontario and Western Canada), includes features like AMR-Automatic Make-Ready, fully automatic plate changers, and closed-loop colour control. The press will also be equipped with UV drying capability for running unique substrates like plastics.
In March 2011, Simpson Print upgraded its toner production with the installation of an HP Indigo 5500. The company, led by President Martin Johanns, also runs a large finishing department with bindery, die cutting and fulfillment services.
