“Our older presses were costing us so much money per month with the extra labor required and slower production capabilities, it started to make sense to look for a new press that provided the advanced capabilities we need to remain competitive,” said Chris Pellegrini, president of William Charles Printing. “This was a big decision for our company… One successful company I researched owned 26 Komori presses. If a large company, that can afford to buy any press it wanted, continues to buy Komori, it was all the assurance I needed.”
In just 3 months since installation, the company has cut its makeready time in half and reduced staff in the pressroom from 7 press operators to 4.
The GL540 press technology includes console-driven makereadies powered by Komori’s KHS-AI, an easy-to-use software tool to enhance press throughput and waste reduction.
“There is no doubt the GL540C will keep us competitive, save us money and deliver the efficiencies we were looking for. We are also excited that it will open up new markets for us with its ability to print on thicker stocks and deliver high-quality color,” said Pellegrini.
