Komori H-UV Lithrone G40

The innovative Lithrone G40 H-UV system generates instantly dry sheets, not usually associated with offset printing. Combine this with a three minute makeready and turnaround time is significantly reduced, putting Centurion's H-UV Komori in competition with digital machines, but with a B1 sheet capacity.

High Quality, Fast turn-around Press

We pride ourselves on top quality print and we now offer enhanced services through the H-UV system on the Lithrone G40. With marginal costs involved, this press produces special features such as UV, drip off, instant drying, short turnaround time and all is done inline, in one pass. The H-UV system has opened door to a much larger range of printable substrates including clear plastics, opaque plastics, and foils.

"G" stands for green

This is a ‘G’ series press, which stands for ‘green’. It is certified with the European environmental BG accreditation, using 30% less power and 30% less ink. The UV system is ozone free, low heat and alcohol free. The machine gives us the ability to print shorter runs, faster, without compromising our exceptional quality. Whether you require a large B1 run or few business cards, Centurion Print has the capacity and quality to complete it all. Everything is done right here, from the print through to in-house print finishing, folding, stitching, die cutting.
