Mumbai-based print finishing solutions provider Hitech Systems has notched up several successful installations since June. After the 25 March nationwide lockdown announced to stop the spread of Covid-19, it has been gradually eased since end-May. With many printers restarting operations, restrictions have continued to be reduced further since then. “We have been fully operational since early June and have managed some successful installations in the last three months. These installations are across the country,” says Parag Shah, chief executive officer of Hitech Systems.
More than 40 machines have been installed by Hitech beginning 8 June when the lockdown was relaxed in Mumbai. At the same time, its engineers have continued supporting customers across the country. Established in 1989, since 2007, Hitech Systems has emerged as a leading name in the short run, on-demand, and quick print finishing solutions business. Representing multiple global brands, the company operates from the Shah and Nahar Industrial Estate in Lower Parel in Mumbai. It has teams in Bangalore, Chennai and Delhi as well as partners across India.
Bengaluru – Yono Packaging
Since June, some of the highlights include the installation of a semi-automatic insertion/closing machine at Bengaluru-based Yono Packaging. This machine would enable the printer to produce up to 1,000 wiro bound books and or calendars an hour. “The machine supplied by Hitech Systems meets the demand of the easy to use and operate principal. A unique feature of the machine is to easily change the size of the wiro (in diameter and pitch) without any tool change,” says Shah.
Hitech has installed a heavy-duty digital die-cutting machine at another customer in Bengaluru. While declining to name the customer, Hitech says the customer is using the machine to do its regular work such as kiss cutting, box making (sample maker), and full-cut jobs. The solution enables the customer to cut materials up to 6 mm in thickness.
Mumbai – Hitesh Print Hub
In the eastern Mumbai suburb of Ghatkopar, Hitesh Print Hub has installed a range of print finishing equipment from Hitech Systems at its newly opened print hub near Ghatkopar station. Hitesh Print Hub has commissioned a fully automatic and programmable paper cutter; a roll laminator; semi-automatic creasing and perforation machine, a digital die cutter; and a visiting card cutter. Hitesh Savla and Navin Savla, along with Keking Savla, are the owners of the company.
Chennai – Rathna Offset
Continuing its association with Hitech Systems, Chennai-based Rathna Offset has placed an order for a heavy-duty digital die cutter and a foil printer. “Hitech and team Rathna made special efforts to install the machines under the pandemic situation, and the whole exercise was a great success. We were also able to train their staff effortlessly,” Shah says.
Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu
In Karaikudi, another HP Indigo user has installed a range of print finishing equipment from Hitech Systems. Apple Graphics has installed a heavy-duty double hydraulic paper cutter and Gemini digital die-cutter with an auto feeder to do its regular wedding album work.
