Suria Press, Malaysia installs Autoprint’s Checkmate 50

24th export installation of Checkmate 50 inspection system

Autoiprint’s carton inspection system-Checkmate 50 installed at Suria Press in Malaysia

Established in 1979 as a commercial printer, Suria Press in Malaysia has over time diversified successfully to paper-based packaging. The company recently installed Autoprint’s inspection system-Checkmate 50 manufactured in Coimbatore in South India.
Moving to paperboard packaging industry since the mid 1990’s Suria’s plant is state of the art with automated offset presses, autoplaten diecutters, folder gluers, coaters and laminators.
Being quality-conscious, and to serve its customers with full integrity and defect free packaging is essential since these comprise leading pharmaceuticals & FMCG industries. With product quality and on-time delivery being vital, having an inspection machine to find defects while simultaneously reducing and eliminating manual quality checking processes was important. It is not only suggested but also crucial to have an inspection machine that can conduct error-free inspections of the cartons at high speed. 
Suria’s decision makers looked at and met with a few inspection machine manufacturers and in the course of their search visited Autoprint in Coimbatore in South India  in November 2017. They were convinced with the Autoprint’s Checkmate 50 machine due to its superior quality of checking and its speed.

Service is the key

The Checkmate 50 is rigid in structure, with reliable technical camera components and user-friendly software that can be customized. Moreover, Autoprint’s personnel provided the support and hand-holding that new customers may require and even demand. Suria found that Autoprint personnel were knowledgeable and supportive, which enhanced their confidence in their after-sales-service and support. The machine was installed at Suria Press in January 2018 and the spokesperson from the Suria Press states, “We strongly believe that it will be the key to further enhance our deliveries and quality control. We are happy with the Autoprint’s new inspection machine and look forward to our continuous association.”

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.
