ROLLING MEADOWS, IL—August 14, 2014—Komori America, a premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset printing presses, announced that Data-Mail Inc., one of the nation’s largest full-service direct mail production companies and one of the largest employers in Central CT, has installed a new six-color Lithrone G40 with H-UV (GL640).

The Lithrone G40 features cutting edge automation, including Komori’s revolutionary KHS-AI intelligent software with self learning and automatic plate changing that minimize set-up time and waste, enabling Data-Mail to produce shorter-run work profitably and with the highest level of image and color quality. Data-Mail’s new press is equipped with Komori’s H-UV system to further drive efficiency and print quality. H-UV is an innovative curing system developed by Komori as one of its many products designed to improve overall pressroom efficiency.
