Media Graphix, based in Atlanta, GA, has purchased and installed its fourth Komori press from Komori America. The press is a GL540C five-color Lithrone G40 with coater. The company says it chose the Komori GL540C for its ability to efficiently print on a variety of substrates and its sharp print quality.
“This press is leap years ahead in terms of automation and it is opening up new doors for us by making it possible to provide the high-end applications marketing agencies and product marketers require,” says Sam Asadi, vice president, Media Graphix. “My press operators are blown away with the speed of the press and the vibrancy of color it produces.”
Media Graphix reports it is running 16,000 impressions an hour on the GL540C and has cut its makeready time in more than half. In addition to high-print quality and productivity, the GL40 presses were designed to save energy and resources, reduce harmful chemical substances such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released during printing and reduce noise.
“Media Graphix is a long-time customer of Komori’s and we are thrilled that the GL540C is making new opportunities possible for them,” says Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of sales for Komori.
