True value that exceeds expectations.
First Lithrone Series A1 Press
The Power to Meet Many Different Needs with Stable High Quality
The Lithrone A37 is a high performance press that inherits the basic performance of the Lithrone Series machines. A compact press that can produce A1-size products, the LA-37 offers a 640 x 940 mm maximum sheet size that can accommodate a wide range of printing needs. Capable of printing sheets up to 37 inches in width, this press has the power to address the full span of requirements in the publishing and commercial printing segments. Since color management can be implemented by including a CMS color bar on sheets even with 8-up A4 and American letter size impositions, the LA-37 is the ideal machine for producing high page-count products with high print quality. Perfect for printing items in the international standard A1 poster size, plus total flexibility in layout criteria such as bindery register marks. The 13,000 sheets per hour maximum printing speed is just right for regular operation.
Moreover, this press offers a sheet thickness range of 0.04—0.6 mm and all the performance demanded for success with short- and medium-run work. In addition, being more compact and lighter than a 40-inch press means lower initial cost and lower life-cycle cost due to reduced power and materials costs. The Lithrone A37: the 37-inch press that delivers the versatile ease of use and superlative cost performance that only Komori can create.
Quality and Productivity:The Ultimate Sheetfed Offset Press
The Lithrone Series has been loved by printers worldwide since its launch in 1981.
Continuously evolved to meet user needs. Print quality improvements due to new ink fountain key design, ultrasonic doublesheet detection, and film applied to the surface of plate cylinders as well as operator-friendly machine design changes to meet safety standards, improve ease of operation, and reduce the operator's taskload.
Reduced consumption of printing materials due to efficiency enhancements as well as environmentally positive reduction in use of potentially harmful substances. Capable of high added value printing thanks to multicolor unit configurations with the option of an inline coater.
Quality and Cost-performance Resonate
The Enthrone embodies the high print quality and leading-edge technologies that have become synonymous with Komori. And with its stepless operator-side design and small footprint, the Enthrone fits easily in any installation space.
Emblematic of the Enthrone’s full arsenal of functions, the press employs an array of double-size impression and transfer cylinders to ensure consistent performance on short runs of a diverse work mix. Accommodating sheet thicknesses of 0.04 mm to 0.6 mm, the press dramatically shortens the time required for changeover between light and heavy stocks because no transfer cylinder gripper pad adjustment is necessary. The Enthrone, in short, enables working efficiencies that result in higher margins and business growth.
*Sheet thickness range for perfectors: 0.04 ~ 0.45 mm in straight mode, 0.04 ~ 0.3 mm in perfecting mode.
Quality, turnaround and cost performance to maximize opportunity
The SPICA Series presses provide short makereay through Komori's KHS-inspired Pre-inking and Removing function and range of automated system. Fully network-ready with the optional CIP4 interface kit.
The press that contributes to greater opportunity by comprehensively addressing diverse needs
Speed and Quality with Complete Consistency
The System series of web offset presses delivers high printing speed and productivity and also showcases Komori's emphasis on press stability at maximum rated speed and high print quality of the finished printed product.

The Banknote Series of machines symbolizes Komori's leadership in the development of printing technology.
Automatic, Labor-saving Packaging Presses
Equipped with inline postpress processing functions, designed for automatic, labor-saving operation and packed with the special technologies required for packaging production. Available for offset and gravure printing.
The outlook for print is changing as a result of the development of digital communications. In addition to driving forward the idea of OffsetOnDemand in offset printing, Komori understands that raising effciency and prots by taking advantage of both offset and digital printing technologies is the key to success for printing companies. Success requires the reliability and print quality of offset presses combined with the variable data printing capabilities and short run convenience of digital printing systems. To offer the total power of these capabilities, Komori is creating DigitalOnDemand solutions.
And now Komori has developed the high quality Impremia IS29 digital printing system as the key machine in the
Komori OnDemand melding of offset and digital.
With the top share for offset presses in Japan and following the release of the next-generation Impremia series digital printing systems, Komori now takes aim at future-oriented innovation in processing by providing the ideal equipment and setup, such as newly developed postpress machines. The Apressia series of postpress products consists of a lineup of the Apressia CT115/CT137 programmable cutters offering the latest safety features and ease of use along with the Apressia DC105 die cutter optimized for package production efficiency
