Shraddha Jumbo Xerox, based in the Koldongri area of Andheri East, Mumbai, has bought a brand new Konica Minolta AccurioPress C6100 digital color press. This is the second Konica Minolta digital press for Shraddha Jumbo Xerox, the first one being a Konica Minolta AccurioPress C6085 which was installed in January 2018. After running a successful digital print shop for many years in Vile Parle East, Shraddha Jumbo Xerox branched out to the Koldongri area of Andheri East looking for bigger volumes. Koldongri, about a kilometer from Andheri local train and metro stations, has plenty of commercial and educational establishments such as hospitals, schools, and corporate offices.
“Since starting off at Koldongri about two years ago, we have seen a rapid rise in the number of impressions we print every month. We have had a really good experience running the AccurioPress C6085 and that is why we went for the second one, the C6100. We wanted to continue our association with the company,” says Kishor Gami, owner of Shraddha Jumbo Xerox.
The Konica Minolta C6100 has a printing speed of 100 pages per minute, which is faster than that of the C6085, which offers a speed of 85 pages per minute. The C6100 press uses a fully automated, closed-loop quality management system, as well as accurate front to back registration. It offers 1200 x 1200 dpi (dots per inch) resolution with 8-bit processing. The press can handle up to 400 gsm stock weights – simplex or duplex.
Konica Minolta launched the AccurioPress C6100 / C6085 color digital press series in September 2017. The company showcased the AccurioPress C6085 for the first time at Pamex 2017, which was held in Mumbai. It was at Pamex 2017 that Gami first saw the demonstration of the AccurioPress C6085 and was impressed by what he saw.
Now with two production printers at its 300 square foot facility, Gami plans to double the number of impressions he prints every month. “With the C6085 we were printing about 120,000-130,000 impressions every month. Now with the second press, our aim is to increase the volume to about 300,000 every month. We are hopeful of achieving this target soon,” he says.
Shraddha Jumbo Xerox also has a well-equipped finishing department, which consists of a Polar cutting machine, a locally made creasing, and a center-pinning machine, among others.
“We have been very focused on having a strong post-printing Section so that we don’t have to rely on third-party service providers. If we have to service our high-volume customers, we need to deliver the jobs on time or maybe before time,” he says.
