American Litho, Inc. has purchased a Mitsubishi Diamond 6000LX sheetfed press designed for board and thin paper stock. Slated for installation in January 2013, the seven-color, 56-inch press with inline ultraviolet (UV) curing will join a large stable of heatset and coldset web, sheetfed and digital presses at American Litho’s headquarters facility in Carol Stream, Ill.
The Diamond 6000LX features a maximum sheet size of 40 15/16 x 56 11/16 inches.

By ordering the press equipped with interstation UV-curing capabilities, the company can offer the ability to print on a wide variety of substrates and use different effective coating techniques on packaging, point-of-purchase-displays and other specialty products.
