At Labelexpo India 2018, Vinsak received a healthy footfall at its stand. “Quite a busy show this one,” said Ranesh Bajaj, director of the company. “Right from Day 1, we were getting customers at our stand enquiring about the solutions offered by us. Over the last two days, we managed to crack some good deals. It might have been that the customers walked around the first two days exploring all the different options available at the show but eventually, they settled with the one that suited them the best,” he shared.
Apart from the customers the company was already in touch with, it targeted some new label printers at the show. Vinsak wanted to show some new label printing solutions to both its existing and prospective customers during the show. “Unless you demonstrate new technology running in Indian conditions with Made in India consumables, it won’t really help you sell your product in the market. After all, customers will want to buy solutions suiting the local conditions,” Bajaj said.
At the event, Vinsak displayed six machines, two of which were Lombardi presses: a Synchroline 430 8-color flexo label printing press with a Toro unit with hologram and hot stamping. A live demo of the machine was run that showcased printed self-adhesive stock and security labels. The second machine on display was a Lombardi Synchroline, 530 mm wide, 8-color flexo printing press with an overlap unit capable of printing multi-layer labels as well as 20-micron film for flexible packaging. On the finishing line, the company displayed two Vinsak USAR machines, one with a Vinsak Inkjet system and a Lake image camera for 100% verification. The second Vinsak USAR was equipped with the Domino K600i Inkjet System, a registered die-cutting unit, inspection system and dual slitting and rewinding options. In addition, the company also displayed the Vinsak Table Top Rewinder used for unwinding and rewinding paper and film rolls. It also displayed a machine from the Roll Lifter series for manual transfer of rolls from one place to another and the Schober cutting and punching modules.
“I think the venue is getting better. With metro connectivity scheduled soon, I think the turnout at this venue will improve phenomenally. New hotels are coming up in this part of the NCR region allowing nearby lodging and with increasing ease, this is turning out to be a promising venue,” Bajaj noted.
A distributor of Lombardi presses in the Indian sub-continent, Vinsak also announced the sale of two presses on the first day of the event. It sold the Lombardi Synchroline 430 to Delhi-based Polylam Printers and the Synchroline 530 to Ahmedabad-based Prakash Printers. The company also sold the Lombardi 430 to Mumbai-based Total Print Solutions. The press will be installed in December 2018. Total Print Solutions also bought the 430 mm Vinsak USAR slitter rewinder to compliment the press. On the other hand, Mudrika Labels based in Mumbai purchased two Vinsak USAR machines with 100% inspection system.
