Press giant Komori will exhibit its latest offset technologies including the new the eight-color 37-inch Lithrone GL37P at next month’s IGAS 2018 trade show in Tokyo.

Being shown for the first time, the Lithrone GL37P convertible offset press features an advanced perfecting mechanism and one-pass double-sided printing. The GL37P’s compact footprint expands installation possibilities for users with space restrictions and comes equipped with Komori’s H-UV L (LED) instant curing system.

Other offset technologies on show at the Komori booth – the largest in the exhibition – include the compact Lithrone G37 (GL37) (pictured, above). Debuted at drupa 2016, this press has been updated and re-engineered. It offers a 25 x 37-inch maximum sheet size and is ideal for a range of publishing and commercial printing on both light and heavy stocks. The GL37 press is equipped with Komori’s proprietary H-UV L (LED) instant curing system to enable fast turnaround.

Demonstrations at the booth will feature Komori’s KP-Connect, middleware that connects processes and provides visualization of production status such as operating conditions and operating controls. Visitors will be introduced to the concept of Connected Automation, a process that maximizes production efficiency by linking prepress, press and post-press using the evolved KP-Connect.

Komori’s inkjet UV printing system, the Impremia IS29, will also be front and center at the show. The Impremia IS29 is a state-of-the-art inkjet printing system capable of printing on a wide range of stocks, including ordinary offset paper. By taking advantage of UV inkjet characteristics, the IS29 is ideal for commercial print applications and package printing.

Other technology at the booth will include the Highcon Euclid III digital cutting and creasing system, the Lithrone GX40 (GLX40) and Lithrone GX40RP (GLX40RP) – a 40-inch one-pass, double-sided press – as well as a lineup of new high-speed cutting systems, the Komori Apressia series.

IGAS 2018 will be held in Tokyo from July 26 through July 31, 2018 at Tokyo Big Sight.
