Litho or Lithographic printing is the conventional print method predominantly used in the print industry. Litho printing involves the transfer of wet ink from an ink duct, to an aluminium plate through a series of rollers, which in turn is transferred to a cylindrical rubber blanket using water as the repellent, and ultimately is softly kissed onto the paper or board from a transfer cylinder.
In our press hall we have a vast and formidable range of Komori and Heidelberg litho printing presses, ranging in size from small offset A4 and A3 to largest B1 size.
All our litho presses are calibrated to GMG colourproof, and are equipped with full-width array ink density scanners. For printing on Coated paper, we use Fogra 39 data set to define the colour management and control, and Fogra 47 for printing on uncoated white paper. This establishes the ink density parameters to enable printing to ISO12647-2 standard.
Both our Komori B1 presses offer the most advanced Smart Start Press Intelligence Systems in the world, ensuring our customers receive ‘Print-On-Demand’.
