A frequent participant in major international exhibitions, the company’s equipment installations are currently spread over 25 countries.

Commenting on the new launch, the company’s director, Kaku Kohli, says, “Many special and unique features have been designed in this new press. We wish to highlight how our customers will benefit from these features in their daily production.” The main advantage is the simple and quick changeover of printing jobs, enabling customers to accept short-run orders without any fear of losing valuable time or excess wastage. Other special features help to lower the cost of daily production by consuming less power, lower ink and solvent consumption with minimum labour.

“Converters can gain considerably by attending this Open House. The emphasis is on power saving, low consumption of inks and solvents, low wastage of expensive materials and use of minimum labour. A major challenge to overcome in any gravure press is to allow cost-effective short-runs. The Thea AR-360 is an ideal solution for this problem,” Kohli says.
