Midstate Printing Selects Eight-Color Komori GL40 Perfector with LED-UV to Replace Three Competitive Presses

Rolling Meadows, IL - March 02, 2017 -

Komori America  announced that  Midstate Printing, a solutions based print and  communications company  in Syracuse, NY,  recently purchased  an  eight-color Lithrone G40  perfector  with LED-UV  (GL840P)  to replace  three competitive presses  in operation  on its pressroom floor. Midstate Printing is a G7 Master Printer serving a wide  range of industries that includes higher education, corporate communications, pharma, the American Red Cross and more, all who demand
high-quality output. As a full-service print provider specializing in difficult and complicated applications, the GL840P offered  the company the advanced technology required  to produce stunning, dense  color  on difficult stocks, like uncoated or matte, and get unique jobs to customers in record speed.

“Our best customers  are those  who  have complicated print requirements,  so  having  the  latest  technology in-house is critical  to helping  them achieve their goals,”  said Thomas House, COO for Midstate Printing. “After reviewing  three of the  top press manufacturers  in the industry,  we chose Komori. Not only does this  press  have the innovative technology we wanted,  Komori’s  approach to continued advancement fits with our culture. The GL840P offers such advanced automation and fast job cycle time that we were able to retire three presses because of the robust capabilities this one press can deliver.”

With a variety of automatic devices and systems, such as the KHS-AI integrated control system, a  full automatic plate-changing system (APC)  and the ability for printed items to cure instantly with  LED-UV, the company plans to enjoy a  more  efficient,  streamlined  production  process;  cutting  its makeready to minutes and significantly shortening the time from receipt of materials to delivery because finishing work such as cutting, die cutting and folding can be performed immediately.

 “The GL840P  can easily handle  more unique, complex applications  all while optimizing  efficiency,” said Mark  Hopkins, vice president of sales,  Komori  America. “We look forward to working with Midstate Printing as they explore both the creativity and streamlined production capabilities of their new press.”
