Slate Group purchases third Komori press

December 5, 2022  By PrintAction Staff

Slate Group, Lubbock, Texas, plans to expand its impressive creative services offerings in 2023 with the installation of its third Komori press, a Lithrone G40 advance perfector (GL840P advance) with LED-UV curing system. The eight-colour 40-in. press joins two Komori GL540 presses with coaters and LED-UV already successfully producing the much-in-demand, value-added marketing pieces Slate Group creates for a diverse range of clients.

The company anticipates the GL840P advance will double its throughput with its ability to print two-sided print jobs up to two times faster.

“As we’ve continued to partner successfully with our customer base by looking at different ways to enhance their brands, it has really increased our amount of work, so we are excited that we will be able to double our capacity with this new press,” said Brad Phinny, COO, Slate Group. “Historically, we still consider ourselves specialists in short run, quick turnaround colour, which is another reason we are adding the new press. We are seeing our print runs increase and we want to continue to deliver the quick turn times we’re known for and remain a market leader in that regard. We are all looking forward to the speed and significant productivity increases the Komori GL840P advance will deliver.”


Slate Group plans to install the new press in the second quarter of 2023.
