Measurable Efficiency and Color Quality Key Drivers in the Decision

Rolling Meadows, IL - April 25, 2017 -

Walle Corporation, one of the fastest growing, family-owned and operated label companies in the country,  recently purchased  a  new  Komori  eight-color Lithrone GLX40 with coater (GLX840C). As one of the nation’s leading  label suppliers  to the beverage, food and household products industries,  Walle  Corporation  is committed to providing the innovation  needed to help its clients be more competitive in an increasingly demanding marketplace.  This commitment  led Walle  to purchase the GLX840C  to  meet the  growing requirements for faster turnaround,  unmatched capabilities and lower costs.

After much research  Walle  said it chose  to partner with  Komori  due to the company’s  history  of
manufacturing excellence,  advanced  technology  and reputation for responsiveness. The sophisticated automation of the GLX840C offers  KHS-AI intelligent software with self-learning,  automatic plate changing  for fast turnaround  and the ability to handle a wide variety of substrates.

Additionally, Walle installed an inline roll-fed sheeter on the press to  further  support  the ability to run thin and complicated materials at high speeds, important for producing specialized thin wall packaging solutions. “We specialize exclusively in label print production for high volume consumer products for the country’s largest brands as well as flexible, quick turnaround services for smaller regional brands . Our customers continue to demand  high quality,  lower costs and more flexibility;  and this press allows us to compete on all points,” said Sean Keeney,  chief  executive  officer for Walle Corporation. “The GLX40 offers  timesaving and labor-saving features that  make  it possible to cut  set up  time by 40 percent and significantly reduce waste. This  meets  both our  efficiency  and sustainability  goals. It also delivers  the  high  color quality  and consistency that ensures we are  guarding  our clients’  brand integrity.”

“We  are confident the  level of automation inherent in the GLX40 will support the commitment to
innovation  that has fueled the company’s growth for more than 100 years,”  said  Mark Hopkins, vice
president of sales, Komori  America Corporation.    “It is a  press  specifically  designed to deliver the  print quality and flexibility necessary  to easily meet the demands of Walle Corporation’s  impressive customer base.”
