Gurugram-based Kumar Printers has recently installed Autoprint’s Checkmate 50 carton inspection system. The paper and paper board packaging solutions provider caters to sectors such as pharmaceutical, food, beverage and FMCG, among others.
Kumar Printers was started by MK Bhargava almost 50 years back as a commercial printer and it gradually ventured into packaging about 25 years back. “Quality and service has always been our priority from day one. We do not claim to be the cheapest, but we definitely offer value for money to our customers. We cater mainly to the pharma segment along with food and FMCG sectors,” says Sandeep Bhargava, managing director.
Talking about Autoprint’s Checkmate 50 carton inspection system, he says, “The Checkmate 50 is a perfect ‘Made in India’ product. We found it trustworthy and were assured of prompt service support. It is also a very cost-effective solution.”
According to Bhargava, the Checkmate 50 has helped Kumar Printers cut down on inspection time while maintaining the required level of quality assurance. In addition, the system has ensured faster delivery of the right product to Kumar Printers’ clients.
“The Autoprint Checkmate 50 ensures 100% defect-free cartons, which is a major requirement for the pharma industry. We make folding cartons and the Checkmate 50 helped us cut down on inspection time while maintaining the required level of quality assurance. This means faster delivery of the right product to our clients. Deliveries are moving faster owing to a speedier checking process. Manual dependencies have reduced drastically,” he adds.
Autoprint Checkmate 50 can inspect print defects and foil errors. It can handle maximum carton size of 400 x 500 mm and minimum carton size of 100 x 100 mm. The machine can take paper thickness of 180 to 400 gsm and has a maximum speed of 250 m / min. Some other salient features of Checkmate 50 include bottom feeding system with vibrator, high-speed pneumatic ejection system with air jets for segregating good and defective cartons separately, vacuum belt under the camera for holding the carton firmly, air jets for removing dust and fluff from cartons and delivery stacker with servo control for stream stacking, among others.
