Vinsak has announced the installation of Lombardi Synchroline 430 at Sreevan Offset Printers in Hyderabad. Vinsak said, as a part of their service to gravure printers and brands in the region, Sreevan understood that there was a latent demand to print short-run flexibles on a narrow web press using flexo plates, which have a lower cost of origination compared to gravure.
Karunakar, managing director and chief executive officer of Sreevan, said, “The ability of the Lombardi press to print from 12 microns unsupported films to 450-micron carton board material made it a natural choice for us. The market references provided were also impeccable with many customers having multiple installs of the machine which justifies that the entire eco system of Equipment, services and support was functioning well, thus enabling the convertor to succeed early.” The company plans to expand to the Shrink sleeves segment and exploit the board printing capabilities on the Synchroline.
Established in the year 2000, Sreeven Offset Printers in Uppal, Hyderabad is a part of the group offering gravure cylinders, flex printing services, commercial, label printing, and short fun flexibles in the state of Telangana. In the near future, this business aims to expand its line of products and services and expand to a more extensive client base.
Karunakar added, “Vinsak has been highly supportive and instrumental in helping us to finalize on the Synchroline Flexo machine and then install and begin production even during the times of the Pandemic. Application support for training our teams has been appreciable.”
Mohan Pailwan, general manager, Vinsak India, said, “Dealing with Sreeven has been an absolute pleasure in terms of their professionalism in discussing the options necessary for the machine, the commercial terms as well their understanding of the end user market.”
