‘Offset-on-Demand’ Unit Upgrades State-of-the-Art Print Facility

Balfour has taken another huge step in our continued commitment to provide the most brilliant printed products in the country.

Currently regarded as one of the busiest and most cutting-edge printing businesses in the U.S., Balfour today announced a significant advancement in their printing capabilities with the addition of a Komori Lithrone GL 840-P press in their Dallas facility, where Balfour produces yearbook and commercial printed products.

“Balfour has taken another huge step in our continued commitment to provide the most brilliant printed products in the country, while also creating more environmentally-friendly processes at our facilities,” said Steven Parr, Chief Executive Officer of Balfour.

The Lithrone GL 840-P, a best-in-class machine and one of the most innovative “Offset-on-Demand” products from Komori, allows Balfour to streamline lower-volume press runs such as yearbooks. Features such as automatic plate changing technology help reduce make-ready time, while two-sided printing in one pass contributes to an overall shortened printing process. Coupled with a stable printing platform, the result is decidedly faster turnaround times. In the meantime, the GL 840-P still outperforms other presses by delivering the highest image color, quality and consistency and a closed-loop registration system that provides for superb registration.

Considered one of the most energy efficient, cost-effective and paper waste-reducing presses available to commercial publishers, the Lithrone GL 840-P is a workhorse – allowing two-sided printing at 15,000 sheets per hour.

“The addition of this new press will help us increase capacity,” said Parr. “Our print quality will increase, our facilities will be more environmentally-friendly and our customers will be thrilled all the way around.”
