As the next-generation cousins, Robert and Jorge Hernandez, assume management of family-owned Solo Printing, the purchase of two new Komori presses continues the company’s tradition of investing in advanced equipment.
The new presses, a ten-color Lithrone perfector (1040P) and a six-color Lithrone G40 (GL640), are equipped with LED, UV and IR curing technology. Solo Printing chose these Komori presses for their ability to deliver advanced automation that results in greater efficiency, color accuracy and quicker makeready to reduce waste. LED-UV curing allows their jobs to go direct to bindery and shipping, meeting their customers’ fast turnaround demands. The company’s print production facility also includes two Komori web presses.
“Having a Komori ten-color perfecting press on our floor will be a real game-changer for the company in terms of productivity,” said Jorge Hernandez, Jr., VP of operations for Solo Printing. “With the Komori 1040P, we have the flexibility to produce four-color jobs with varnish and a PMS color all in one pass. Having this efficiency, along with the speed of the new GL640, will make it possible to reduce our costs and offer an extremely fast turnaround for our clients.”
