Among the top packaging converters in Pakistan, privately-owned Saima Packaging is home to top-flight equipment for printing flexible materials including, most recently, a Bobst RS 4003MP gravure press which has cut make-ready times and reduced waste. The 8-color Bobst RS 4003MP installed last year at Saima Packaging’s flexible packaging production facility in Karachi features technical solutions for automation and reduced waste that enable it to be operated profitably with any mix of print job lengths, from short to long run production.
Established in 1987 by the Tinwala family, the company this year celebrates 30 years in business. Their vision in anticipating growth and trends in the packaging market has seen the company develop into a major supplier to leading multinational and domestic brands, mainly in the food and beverage, FMCG, pharmaceutical and tobacco segments of the packaging market.
The RS 4003MP is an electronic shaft gravure line fitted with a shaftless printing cylinder system. Its flexibility of configuration makes it suitable for addressing a wide range of applications. The Bobst Registron register control system integrated with the electronic shaft system of the press is remarkable for its ability to reduce material waste to a minimum. To further improve performance at make-ready and changeover, Saima Packaging specified its RS 4003MP with the fully automatic TAPS pre-register setting system.
Yousuf Tinwala, chief executive of Saima Packaging, said, “We source the most technically advanced equipment for our operations, because we believe that machine quality is essential to achieving quality results. This has enabled us to build a reputation for manufacturing competitive, highend packaging solutions: and our customers can trust us to always deliver on that.”
