Rolling Meadows, IL, November 17, 2014—As one of Colorado’s 250 fastest growing privately owned companies, and one of the top 400 largest printers in America, Vision Graphics/Eagle:xm know the importance of continually evolving in its commitment to help businesses use technology to create innovative and impactful connections. This commitment is what led VGI&E to purchase a new Komori eight-color Lithrone G40 (GL840) with an H-UV system to meet its clients’ growing requirements for higher quality color with greater productivity.
Showcasing a portfolio that produces impressive print results, color consistency and on-time distribution at unmatched parallels, Komori’s GL840 provides the perfect fit for Vision Graphics/Eagle:xm, whose customer portfolio ranges from high-end retail marketing materials to glossy catalogs and publications.
Answering requirements for outstanding color and fast turnaround
The new press is equipped with Komori’s H-UV system to further drive efficiency and print quality. H-UV is a proprietary, innovative ink curing system developed by Komori. H-UV inks respond to uncoated paper by curing instead of drying like traditional inks. Unlike the dull look that can come from traditional inks, H-UV delivers an organic high-gloss appearance on uncoated paper that is being sought after by designers and marketers seeking photo-quality print. Vision Graphics is the only commercial print provider in its area to offer this capability. An additional key driver in adding this advanced technology to the press included its ability to deliver a bindery ready sheet for fast job cycle time.
Delivering the ultimate customer experience
“In our business, it’s about understanding the customer and providing them what they need to drive their customers to engage with their brand. Precision printing is a large part of that,” said Mark Steputis, president and chief executive officer, Vision Graphics/Eagle:xm. “Komori’s press simply outperforms the competition when it comes to producing the highest level of image and color quality and consistency. It helps us outperform our competition, deliver a seamless client experience and guard a company’s brand integrity at every step. We are excited to show our customers and prospects what they can do for their branded marketing initiatives with this amazing output.”
Additionally, the GL840 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 Vision Graphics/Eagle:xm to deliver on very tight customer deadlines and produce shorter run work economically.
“The decision to purchase the GL840 with H-UV puts Vision Graphics in a unique position, as they are the only print provider in the area that has our innovative curing system H-UV,” said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of sales for Komori America. “The benefits of the H-UV system are many—for both Vision Graphics and its customers—given its ability to produce dramatic special effects on a variety of substrates, while still significantly improving efficiency and job turnaround times.”
