Pulver Packaging, a folding cartons and paperboard packaging specialist, has purchased a 6-color Komori Lithrone GX40 (GLX640) advance press with LED-UV and coater to expand its capabilities to deliver faster turnaround times.
Pulver Packaging has been manufacturing paperboard folding cartons and paperboard packaging since 1958. By investing in the latest innovative industry technologies and having a customer-first philosophy, the company has become one of the industry leaders in its field.
‘We are excited to welcome this new press to our fleet of Komori presses,’ said Patrick Pulver, president of Pulver Packaging. ‘The tipping point in choosing the GLX40 advance was the speed it delivers and the significant productivity increases we are looking forward to. We have been planning to invest in a new press for quite some time. When Komori introduced its advanced press series, it was a no-brainer. In making this investment, we anticipate the enhancements inherent in this press will allow us to do the work of three of the presses that we have on the floor right now.’
Komori advance series can reach speeds of up to 18,000 sheets per hour on a wide range of print stocks used in paperboard packaging production. The inclusion of LED-UV and a coater on the new press will support the company’s ability to achieve the eye-catching visual effects its customers want. Additional critical drivers in selecting the GLX640 advance included improved efficiencies in makereadies and up-to-the-minute process controls, such as in-line color control and automated changeover functions.
‘Pulver Packaging is a loyal Komori customer with a forward-thinking philosophy when it comes to investing in technology that provides the ability to exceed customer demands,’ said Clark Scherer, district sales manager at Komori America. ‘The GLX640 advance aligns well with this philosophy as it offers the expanded capabilities the company is excited about delivering to its customers.’
