IPM displays NanoTuff and NanoHard coatings at Printpack 2019

Coatings for better dot transfer


Industrial Processors and Metalizers, founded in 1972 by GC Sood, offers services to the printing industry. The company helps replace old worn-out parts of printing machines with brand new ones and also provides refurbishing services on used printing machines. The company has been the first mover in the industry to provide these services to printers.

At Printpack, the company is showing its NanoTuff and NanoHard range of coatings. These are robotic coatings with highest possible accuracy for dot transfer, thereby providing good print quality. These coatings are corrosion resistant and provide 15 plus years of corrosion-free life to the rollers and cylinders.

The company brings in the latest technologies in surface modification. “We basically enhance the surface of the printing machine components such as rollers and cylinders. We even have smaller machine components such as grippers and chase strips. There are various offset printing companies that we are associated with. We also work with people who have a Heidelberg or a KBA and instead of going in for a new machine, the general behavior is to change the machine parts. We are the only company in India that provides original coatings. We have worked with various web offset machine users such as Times of India, Rajasthan Patrika and Punjab Kesari, among others.

“We service the mechanical parts or lets say the moving parts in a printing machine. The main heart of the machine can be repaired by us and you can get the moving part back to its original state. We also provide extended warranty on the parts supplied by us. Ours is a completely robotic facility, one that is microprocessor controlled without any manual interference,” says Surbhi Sood, senior manager at IPM.

IPM does not only serve the printing industry; in fact, it began its journey with the printing industry 46 years ago. The company is now a diversified service conglomerate. It serves hydro power, automobile, textile, steam turbine and thermal power industries, among others.
