WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH — December 2, 2020 – Sun Print Solutions is a commercial printing company with a diverse range of capabilities, including packaging, commercial, and digital print. After coming under new ownership in 2019, Sun Print began seeking to make improvements throughout all departments of the company. As part of this ongoing effort, Sun Print Solutions installed Lithec’s LithoFlash Inline Color Control system on their Komori LS 640 press in May.
Stefan McTee, Chief Operations Officer at Sun Print Solutions, explains why they chose LithoFlash as an upgrade to their 2006 Komori press. “We were looking to take our older press, make it modern, and give our pressmen better tools to produce great work. When we saw the LithoFlash system at the Print ‘19 event in Chicago we decided to stop and see what this technology was all about. All the new presses have this kind of technology, but they’re three to five million dollars. LithoFlash, for a much smaller investment, monitors every sheet.”
Servicing a wide variety of folding carton markets throughout Utah, Sun Print Solutions viewed LithoFlash’s guarantee of greater color consistency as its most valuable advantage. The main function of their Komori 40” plus coater printer is producing packaging products, placing consistent color at high priority for the press. “Customers definitely want the boxes sitting next to each other on the shelf to look exactly the same, and the next time they order they want it to look to exactly the same again.” McTee explains. “Color consistency on the shelf is super important to customers. LithoFlash keeps our color dialed in tighter than we used to.”
