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.

“We serve a choice clientele, and our bars are quite high. No compromise on quality or turnaround times. The Speedmaster CX-75 fits perfectly into our modus operandi” concludes Ashok Kumar, Director Commercial of Print Point. Photo Heidelberg

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.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
