Vinsak India announces another installation of a complete set of label production equipment, including a Lombardi Synchroline 430 and Vinsak USAR 430-Universal slitter & rewinder at Mumbai-based Aarya Print Pack.

Established in the year 2009, Aarya Print Pack is a manufacturer and supplier of a wide array of packaging & pharmaceutical labels. These are developed using qualitative raw material with employing latest machines and tools. These products are widely used to pack varied food, electronics & pharmaceutical products available in different colors, sizes, and designs.

According to the press statement, the fully loaded eight colors Lombardi Synchroline comes equipped with options of De-lam and Re-lam, moveable cold foil, full servo indeed, and outfeed and corona and web cleaning. Multi-substrate capabilities from 12 microns films to 450gsm boards make the press a versatile print system to address different market fields.

The Lombardi press will enable Aarya to enter new fields of higher quality self-adhesive labels, wrap-around, flexible films & shrink sleeves, it said.

The company mentioned that the Synchroline press is best complemented with a high-quality finishing machine Vinsak USAR 430. The modular universal slitter and rewinder is a fully servo-driven system with pneumatic unwinds and rewinds, a scissor and razor slitting system, dual rewinds capabilities of the slit from 12-micron films to 450 gms boards to match the capabilities of the print system.

With the installation of these two new systems, Aarya has taken a quantum leap in its production capabilities and will ensure high double-digit growth in the coming years.

Datta Falsundar, managing director of Aarya Print Pack, said, “Vinsak has been highly supportive and instrumental in helping us to finalize on the Synchroline and USAR machine and then install and begin production even during the times of the Pandemic. To take a quantum leap from our previous entry level equipment to a multi crore investment was initially a challenge for us but the good market references, professional approach and good installation support has reaffirmed our decision in choosing Vinsak as our equipment supplier.”

Lombardi Converting Machinery is a 30-year-old Italian company known for production and distribution, narrow web and wide web flexographic inline presses. With this new installation, India now has an installed base of more than 30 machines in the last five years. All over, Lombardi has installed more than 300 In-Line Flexo presses globally, with about 80 being sold in the Vinsak territories. Lombardi has also recently launched its I2 series of mid and wide web inline Flexo presses for flexible packaging.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
