The LITHOMAN is a worldwide leader in the high-quality, high-volume segment. With its state-of-the-art drive technology, over 350 LITHOMAN systems are at work today, printing magazines, catalogs, directories, and advertising supplements. From 32 to 96 pages, in short or long grain: the LITHOMAN’s productivity helps to establish web offset printing among a growing group of gravure printers.
The LITHOMAN is designed for the industrial printing of magazines and catalogs with medium to high numbers of pages and smallest to high-volume print runs.
For the discerning: the LITHOMAN is customized for commercial printers who want to achieve shorter production changeovers and excellent repeatability thanks to autoprint features and efficient workflows.
Unparalleled quality and productivity: with autoprint functions, efficiency and printing quality go hand in hand. We have optimized all our developments to underline this goal, including design, control systems, and ergonomics.
autoprint: main automation options include the AutoJobChange control package with QuickStart pre-inking, rapid production changeovers with APL® (AutomaticPlateLoading), and quality assurance functions with Inline Control systems for cut-off and color registers, as well as ink density.
Configuring added value: with a fifth or sixth printing unit, additional functions such as DynaChange for automatic imprint changes as well as coatings and specialcolors can be accomplished with ease.
Folders: quarter fold and magnetic brake for automatic production changeovers. The second cross fold can be switched off when not in use, thus reducing energy consumption and press wear.
