Komori America Corporation, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, has installed an eight-color, 40-inch Komori Lithrone perfecting press with UV at Premier Press of Portland, Ore. The new press features Komori’s advanced KHS-AI self-learning technology designed to trim make ready time to a minimum, optimize productivity and reduce waste, while at the same time ensuring the high level image quality that Premier’s clients have come to expect. The press replaces a 10-year-old 40-inch Komori six-color.
The new LS840P offers Premier single-pass perfecting which makes it possible to cut on-press production time in half for two-sided work. Its KHS-AI management system reduces make ready times by enabling automatic presetting of register and color matching that permits the press to reliably attain target densities within 20 sheets at start-up. The press is also equipped with UV that helps reduce marking and adds the ability for special effects coatings.
The company operates a 28-inch Komori offset press also, and offers a variety of finishing and bindery options as well as digital variable printing and ancillary services like web-to-print, warehousing and fulfillment, URL/PURL development and support, marketing campaign management, and wide-format printing.
