Bangalore-based Print Point has installed a new Heidelberg Speedmaster CX-75 6-color with coater press, renewing optimism for business revival and progress, even as the world gears for a ‘new normal’ post-lockdown. An ISO and EICC certified printing and packaging firm, Print Point has worked for Fortune 500 companies, since 1987. The high-end print business specializes in advertising and promotional material on the commercial side. It is also a substantial supplier of monocartons and litho-laminated fluted cartons for pharma and cosmetic segments to which it also supplies inserts and leaflets. It is also a supplier of luxury rigid boxes and shoes boxes. The company has four manufacturing facilities spanning over 200,000 square feet across Southern and Western India.

“The price-performance ratio of the CX-75 is inspiring. Any organization needs to rewire itself for continuous growth and innovation, not just to remain relevant, but to stay on top of its game. Embracing the latest technologies is a surefire way to rise beyond the present change and challenge to new levels of accomplishment. Heidelberg is the print partner we trust to help us scale wider horizons,” comments Sadanand Singh, director Technical of Print Point.


“We serve a choice clientele, and our bars are quite high. No compromise on quality or turnaround times. The Speedmaster CX-75 fits perfectly into our modus operandi” concludes Ashok Kumar, Director Commercial of Print Point. Photo Heidelberg

The next-generation drupa model from Heidelberg – the Speedmaster CX 75, blends the best-in-class XL-75 technology with purposeful automation and performance. A smaller footprint, substrate flexibility and optimal automation make the press easy to integrate into any press room. The double-diameter impression cylinders facilitate gentle sheet transfer, while accommodating diverse substrates, including paper, paperboard and plastics of up to 0.8 mm in thickness.

Automation features like AutoPlate assist in plate changes reducing setup times for the CX-75. The new Intellistart 3 assistance system helps in job changes with time-optimized automation.

Heidelberg’s Alcolor Vario inking and dampening system bring color stability using short-path inking. The full ink duct fountain foil allows quick and easy ink change overs. The precise inking and fast ink control response is supported by digitally controlled ink zone servo motors. Ink consumption is also optimized. The anilox coating unit on the press is fitted with a chamber blade system. Even at its top printing speeds of 15,000 sheets per hour, the CX-75 at Print Point is noise-free. Technology is one way of flattening the curve so that the new normal is just like the old normal, only better.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
