Rolling Meadows, IL - May 02, 2017 -

Packaging Graphics, a leading provider of consumer  product packaging solutions, and a Matlet Group company, has installed an eight-color Komori Lithrone GX40RP (GLX840RP)  as part of  the  focus on  investing  in cutting-edge technologies that  position the firm for expected growth. This latest financial commitment continues Matlet’s investment across all its operations as  the firm works to ensure it meets  the growing needs of  clients that include  some of the world’s most
famous brands.

“We have responded to customer demand by investing in growth capital to position Matlet Group for our long-term future. In just the past six  months, we have invested more than $5.0MM  on new press and auxiliary finishing equipment,” said Gary Stiffler, CEO of the Matlet Group. “Today, more than ever, our customers  require agility and speed-to-market and this investment demonstrates our continued commitment to  meet  their most pressing requirements.  The GLX840RP  gives us the  advanced technology, efficiency and capacity to penetrate new markets.”

The Lithrone GX840RP,  part of Komori’s OffsetOnDemand solutions,  is a  powerful platform that meets the needs of a  new generation of printing. It is  designed with the  leading-edge technologies necessary  to achieve  significantly shorter  makeready times and powderless  instant drying.  The  40-inch  front/reverse multi-color press  delivers  high-speed,  one-pass two-sided printing  with great stability, making it possible for  Packaging Graphics to run  high-quality print on  paper boards  and synthetic substrates  ranging from .008 point to .032 point for the  blister cards, folding cartons, skin pack sheets, stretch pack, CD sleeves, menus and other specialty products the company produces for consumer point-of-purchase packaging and casual dining industries.

“We are very  proud that the  Matlet Group  chose to invest in the GLX840RP. It is a company that stands by its belief that investing in superior technologies is paramount to providing the most advanced, efficient solutions for its customers,” said Mark Hopkins, vice president of sales for Komori America. “This recent investment in the GLX840RP won’t disappoint  as  it is specifically  designed to provide more options, better capabilities and higher-quality output for every type of print requirement.”
