A&M Printer, which was part of a joint venture earlier, set out on its independent journey in 2018. “Since we have been into a new start in business, we keep focusing on major upgrades and developments in all verticals, such as machine portfolio, manpower, and productivity,” KR Misra, managing partner, A&M Printer, said. He added that the latest investment in the Komori Lithrone GL37 is a major transformation in the company’s machine portfolio.

“We heard the industry people orchestrating praises of Komori presses’ flexibility, advanced features, capacity, and cost-effectiveness. This is the major reason why we opted for the brand new four-colour Komori Lithrone G37,” Misra said, adding that the company has also been using some pre-owned presses. 

Misra said that demands from customers keep increasing in several sectors, particularly in book printing. At last, we are capable of keeping everything under control with the installation of the Komori Lithrone G37. More precisely, all our trouble is gone now as the machine is outstandingly performing to meet our diverse needs in all parameters,” Misra added.

An epitome of cutting-edge technologies, Komori Lithrone G37 features an evolved version of the KHS-AI integrated control system for a quick print start-up. Being an offset on-demand press, this versatile press addresses the critical needs of short turnarounds, and diverse applications, including short-run jobs with low production costs. 

Compatible with A-1 size print outputs, Komori Lithrone G37 offers up to a maximum sheet size of 640x940-mm with thicknesses ranging from 0.04 to 0.60-mm delivered at a maximum printing speed of 15,000-sph.

With a facility clustered well into pre-press, press, and post-press divisions, A&M Printer is backed by a strong team of 25 printing and production professionals. In the top management, Misra has been joined by his wife Gita and son Puneet. “It’s really a privilege for me to be part of the management of A&M Printer,” Gita Misra said. 

Currently, A&M Printer engages in three major tasks—book printing (40%), job work (40%), and commercial printing (20%).

“Following the installation of Komori Lithrone G37, we have achieved new traction in production volume,” Puneet Misra, marketing director, A&M Printer, said. He added, “Now, we are capable of producing around 30 lakh sheets every month.”
