KDM P.O.P Solutions Group is pleased to announce the purchase of a new Komori Lithrone GL-640C Offset Printing Press to its already substantial print production operations. This investment will assure maximum productivity to meet today’s speed-to-market demands as well as offer a wider variety of products for the retail vertical while maintaining offset print quality characteristics.
The GL-640 is a 6-color UV press. It assures utmost productivity and efficiency by delivering stable, high-speed operation and a fully automated plate changing process that reduces make-ready time. Other automated print density and color control features will aid in achieving accurate color faster with less waste.
The 40-in. press handles sheet sizes up to 28 in. by 40 in. on a wide range of sheet thicknesses from ultrathin paper and polyethylene to thicker cardstock and plastics (such as polystyrene) up to .040-in. thick. This means KDM can offer a wider variety of products for retail applications.
The new Komori press is scheduled to be fully operational at KDM’s headquarters and main print production facility in Cincinnati this month. The installation requires some light remodeling to accommodate the press.
“We fully expect to improve our turn times on our customer’s needs for mid-sized to large print production runs due to the faster color matching abilities and reduction in make-ready potential that this new press offers”, says Bob Kissel, president/CEO.
