Rolling Meadows, IL, October XX, 2019 – Komori America and LithecUSA, a leading provider of inline color control and inspection systems for the graphic arts industry, have entered into an agreement for the purposes of delivering an efficient and cost-effective way for commercial printers to increase their productivity on both new and existing presses. As part of the agreement, Komori will become a reseller of Lithec’s LithoFlash® Inline.
LithoFlash® Inline is technology that provides enormous savings by combining the fastest inline measurement speed with density control.
