At Ipex 2010, in addition to presenting their faster, larger 40-inch press, the Lithrone SX40, Komori introduced new UV techniques and launched a budget-friendly 29-inch press, the five-color Enthrone 29.
Features of the Ethrone 29 include: Greater flexibility for smaller printshops; Semi-high pile delivery; Compact, space-saving design; PQC-U Print Quality Control; Quick job changes from thin paper to cardboard; and high quality printing by double diameter cylinders. The eight-color Lithrone S40P perfector, with a 3x double-size perfecting mechanism and speed-synchronized delivery transport belt, provides a launchpad for the new H-UV drying system. Eco-friendly and ozone-free H-UV enables the Lithrones to deliver finishing-ready sheets from thin paper to special and with a powder-free finish.
The LSX40 is Komori’s next generation flagship for the 40-inch market. It has a higher running speed of 18,000 sph, a larger sheet size of 750 x 1050mm, and faster, fully automatic plate changing with nonstop plate removal. Its features include a newly developed feeder, an ink cheek design that ensures return-to-zero settings in all operating conditions, and a new delivery profile to increase access and ensure sheet delivery is flat, smooth and mark-free at all speeds and on all materials.
