Hadley Printing Plans to Double Its Run Times with Third Komori Press
Rolling Meadows, IL—April 2, 2015—Komori America, a premier manufacturer of printing solutions, today announced Hadley Printing, a third generation full-service commercial printing company located in New England, has purchased its third Komori press to accommodate the business growth the company is experiencing. The company chose the five-color Lithrone G40 with coater (GL540C) for its advanced technology, sharp print quality and ease of use.
"Komori is always improving its technology, but to ensure we made the right decision when it was time for a new press, we did our due diligence," said Chris Desrosiers, president at Hadley Printing. "We looked at three other manufacturers and the technology each provided. Komori had the best overall package with the type of advanced technology that immediately translates into efficiencies. We plan to double our run times with this press and reduce our makeready by 50 percent. In an operation as busy as ours, where everything is based on volume, we know this press will support our growth by getting quality work out the door quickly."
Hadley Printing is most impressed with the fact an operator can control so much of the GL540C’s processes straight from the console. Mentioned specifically were the KHS-AI system, intelligent software with a self-learning function to adjust register and color matching within 20 sheets of print start up, and the PDC-SX print density control capability that controls densities and automatically adjusts register.
"We are extremely pleased that Hadley Printing recognized the high level of automation the Lithrone G40 will bring to its pressroom and the resulting efficiencies the company will gain from its performance," noted Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of sales and marketing of Komori America. "We look forward to continuing our solid partnership with Hadley Printing as the company continues to grow and expand."
