Green Printing

Solo Printing has built its success on the core values of excellence and responsibility. With over three decades of commitment to our planet’s environmental health, we have incorporated the latest technology and sustainable forestry standards in our supply chain. We believe that the quality of product and quality of life go hand in hand.

It is this commitment to excellence in all aspects of our printing process that has kept us innovative and responsive to evolving technologies and sustainable forestry practices. Our state-of-the-art expansive and immaculate 180,000 sq. ft. printing facility houses our latest investment in green technology— the Komori presses. They produce the highest quality prints while reducing the environmental footprint.

Komori Presses – A Greener Printing Solution

The new Komori presses— a ten-color Lithrone perfector (1040P) and a six-color Lithrone G40 (GL640)— are equipped with LED UV and IR curing technology. We’ve chosen these Komori presses for their ability to deliver advanced automation that results in greater efficiency, color accuracy, and quicker makeready to reduce waste. With the addition of these two presses, we expect to meet even more demands and be twice as efficient for our clients.

LED UV Curing System – A Sustainable Printing Solution

  • The Komori presses are equipped with an LED UV curing system, which allows the ink to cure instantly, eliminating the need for drying time and powders.
  • LED UV lamps last 10 times longer than traditional UV lamps, allowing savings in cost, time, and waste.
  • The LED UV curing system improves both the working environment and the environment as a whole by eliminating heat, ozone, and mercury.
  • Since UV inks are solvent-free, LED UV curing technology cuts out the release of VOCs (volatile organic chemicals) and their environmental and health risks.
  • The addition of value-added coatings is optimized.
  • Strike-through and other high-end printing effects are possible with impressive results.

 
IR Curing Technology- A Greener Printing Solution

  • IR curing technology allows for the use of water-based inks, eliminating the need for solvent-based inks, and thereby significantly reducing VOC emissions.
  • IR curing is an energy and cost-efficient solution to large offset printing projects.

 
Benefits of Green Printing:

  • Reduced use of consumables
  • Low VOC emissions
  • Reduced power consumption (reduced CO2 emissions)
  • Reduced paper and ink consumption
  • Reduction and recycling of waste

 

Apart from being efficient, these new additions also boast a greener way of printing as a result of Komori’s many environmental initiatives that fall in line with our values of being a reduced waste and greener commercial printing company.
