Komori’s Lithrone GX40RP Receives PRINTING United Alliance 2020 InterTech™ Technology Award
Rolling Meadows, IL - September 23, 2020 -
Komori America Corporation announces that its Lithrone GX40RP, a 41-inch UV-equipped dedicated double-sided offset printing press, is the recipient of a PRINTING United Alliance 2020 InterTech™ Technology Award. The award honors the development of game-changing technologies judged to be truly innovative and expected to have a significant impact on graphic communications and related industries. This year is the fifth time Komori has been honored with an InterTech Technology Award. Previous accolades were for the company’s proprietary H-UV Curing System, the Lithrone S40 press, the Komori Fully Automatic Plate Changing System (APC) and the Impremia IS29, a 29-inch inkjet, sheetfed UV printing system.
The GLX40RP, part of Komori’s OffsetOnDemand solutions, is a powerful platform that meets the needs of a new generation of printing. The GLX40RP takes advantage of reverse printing technology so no flipping of the sheet is required. The 41-inch, 18,000 sheets-per-hour, multi-color press delivers high-speed, one-pass two-sided printing with great stability, making it possible to run high-quality print on paper, boards and synthetic substrates ranging from 8 point to 32 point—perfect for blister cards, folding cartons, skin pack sheets, stretch pack, CD sleeves, menus and other specialty products. This press also can be configured for the commercial market with a stock thickness range of light to 20 point. The GLX40RP, along with Komori’s Connected Automation, a suite of production workflow solutions, is the winning combination for streamlined pressroom productivity for both the packaging and commercial marketplace.
“We are honored to once again receive a prestigious InterTech Technology Award from PRINTING United Alliance for a press that truly carries on the brilliant performance of our Lithrone G Series,” said T. Kubotera, president of Komori America. “The GLX40RP has a one-of-a-kind press design that drives flexibility and sheer productivity, giving our customers a competitive edge, as well as greater profitability.”
