Bangalore-based Print Point has installed a new Heidelberg Speedmaster CX-75 6-color with coater press, renewing optimism for business revival and progress, even as the world gears for a ‘new normal’ post-lockdown. An ISO and EICC certified printing and packaging firm, Print Point has worked for Fortune 500 companies, since 1987.
The high-end print business specializes in advertising and promotional material on the commercial side. It is also a substantial supplier of monocartons and litho-laminated fluted cartons for pharma and cosmetic segments to which it also supplies inserts and leaflets. It is also a supplier of luxury rigid boxes and shoes boxes. The company has four manufacturing facilities spanning over 200,000 square feet across Southern and Western India.
“The price-performance ratio of the CX-75 is inspiring. Any organization needs to rewire itself for continuous growth and innovation, not just to remain relevant, but to stay on top of its game. Embracing the latest technologies is a surefire way to rise beyond the present change and challenge to new levels of accomplishment. Heidelberg is the print partner we trust to help us scale wider horizons,” comments Sadanand Singh, director Technical of Print Point.
The next-generation drupa model from Heidelberg – the Speedmaster CX 75, blends the best-in-class XL-75 technology with purposeful automation and performance. A smaller footprint, substrate flexibility and optimal automation make the press easy to integrate into any press room. The double-diameter impression cylinders facilitate gentle sheet transfer, while accommodating diverse substrates, including paper, paperboard and plastics of up to 0.8 mm in thickness.
Automation features like AutoPlate assist in plate changes reducing setup times for the CX-75. The new Intellistart 3 assistance system helps in job changes with time-optimized automation.
Heidelberg’s Alcolor Vario inking and dampening system bring color stability using short-path inking. The full ink duct fountain foil allows quick and easy ink change overs. The precise inking and fast ink control response is supported by digitally controlled ink zone servo motors. Ink consumption is also optimized. The anilox coating unit on the press is fitted with a chamber blade system. Even at its top printing speeds of 15,000 sheets per hour, the CX-75 at Print Point is noise-free. Technology is one way of flattening the curve so that the new normal is just like the old normal, only better.
