Nearly eight years after it first began investigating closed-loop colour control, The New York Times (NYT) has embarked on major press upgrades to deploy the technology. The publisher inked a deal with Netherlands-based Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC) in May to supply 64 IDS-3D cameras to improve colour and registration control across seven Goss Colorliner presses at its College Point production plant. The plant houses seven press folders and includes the Colorliner 85 the publisher installed in 2008. That press has 12 colour towers and two folders, which NYT runs as two presses.

RMGT, manufacturer of the leading 8-up sheetfed offset press in North America, will sponsor the Offset Print Insight Day at the PRINTING United Digital Experience on Nov 3, 2020. The PRINTING United Digital Experience is a 14-day online event and will run from Oct. 26 to Nov. 12, 2020. As each day will feature a unique market segment in the industry, November 3 has been selected to focus on Offset Print, and RMGT will be sponsoring the entire Insight Day’s program. This event will mark the North American debut of the new 8-UP+ RMGT 970 which will be showcased with a virtual press demonstration that will kick off the Offset Print Insight Day program.

UniPrint, the in-plant printing facility for The Ohio State University located in Columbus, Ohio, has installed a Komori Lithrone G37 five-color offset press (GL537) to replace two older offset presses. As an in-plant shop, UniPrint accepts a wide range of work from University faculty, departments and students, as well as placing and maintaining all the multi-functional devices and desktop printers on campus. Although the shop works strictly for internal customers (who can opt to buy print services from outside vendors), UniPrint has a robust staff of 36 full-time workers and, through the school year, adds 20 to 25 student employees to manage ongoing demand.

Komori America Corporation announces that its Lithrone GX40RP, a 41-inch UV-equipped dedicated double-sided offset printing press, is the recipient of a PRINTING United Alliance 2020 InterTech™ Technology Award. The award honors the development of game-changing technologies judged to be truly innovative and expected to have a significant impact on graphic communications and related industries. This year is the fifth time Komori has been honored with an InterTech Technology Award. Previous accolades were for the company’s proprietary H-UV Curing System, the Lithrone S40 press, the Komori Fully Automatic Plate Changing System (APC) and the Impremia IS29, a 29-inch inkjet, sheetfed UV printing system.

AM Lithography, a veteran-owned, full-service printing company based in Chicopee, Massachusetts, has installed a six-color Komori Lithrone G40 (GL640) press. This is the 20th Komori press the company has purchased since CEO Al Meadows launched the business from his basement in 1979 as a part-time start-up before becoming a full-time operation just four years later in 1983. From these humble beginnings, the company has expanded into two facilities, occupying a total of about 150,000 square feet, and employing approximately 150 people. AM Lithography produces a wide range of both packaging and commercial work with a specialty in high-end packaging for clients in the cosmetics and liquor industries. Most recently, the company extended its services to include production of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as shields, signage, stickers and hangers for use during the COVID-19 pandemic.

RMGT, manufacturer of the leading 8-up sheetfed offset press in North America, officially launched their latest member to the 9 Series family, the RMGT 970 offset press, at an Open House in Fukuyama, Japan.
