Kuldip Enterprise recently installed the Kongsberg X24 Edge Production Finisher. Kuldip Enterprises, a Delhi-based sign and display manufacturer, provides all types of signage and fabrication to various brands.

Harbhajan Singh, managing director at Kuldip Enterprise, adds, “We are in this industry for more than four decades. We have been working with many corporations for years. We have high-speed printers, but the bottleneck has always been with finishing. Now with jobs that have strict deadlines, your first reaction is to get the fastest printer, and the faster you produce, finishing has to catch up. Here starts the issue, your floors are flooded with printed jobs, but the finishing is done manually or outsourced.” 

“When outsourcing, you cannot control quality, accuracy, or time limits, you are at the mercy of others. This made our decision firm to go for a finisher. We researched and reviewed many finishers in the market, but Kongsberg was way ahead with its performance and speed, and the best part is you can upgrade it on your floor as per future needs.”

Kongsberg upgrades the tooling options for Kuldip Enterprise 

Samir Patel, managing director, and chief executive officer, adds, “The Kongsberg offers versatility for a wide range of cutting applications. Whether your focus is 2D or 3D or packaging, signs or displays with just about any material from vinyl, paperboard, textiles to wood. The Kongsberg is perfect for any job or application. It’s built like a tank, robust and accurate.”

“The Kongsberg features the most famous, rock-solid Kongsberg tabletop construction that will never warp or go out of level, even after decades of heavy use. The rack-and-pinion drive system provides speed, durability, and strength, easily driving through dense/thick materials. Kongsberg X tables can be configured for milling applications ranging from sporadic, light-duty routing to lengthy jobs working with heavy-duty materials, all with record-breaking productivity.”

Patel adds, “The i-cut Production console offers users powerful functionality for signage, display, and packaging production. iPC ensures highly efficient production along with highly accurate print-to-cut registration. The state-of-the-art user interface provides improved usability with its personalized job management operator.”

Harbhajan adds, “Adding Kongsberg is like giving a cushion to your production floor. Adding a Finisher gives us the ability to be more creative and think out of the box without the constraints of additional outsourcing costs or manual intervention. The Kongsberg X24 is an extremely robust machine that would last well into the future and would provide the ability to upgrade tooling options as we grow the business into different markets.” 

“Knowing well that Arrow Digital is supporting this platform gives us a huge sense of comfort, as they are always creating innovative applications with print and cut in their demo center, helping our operators with hands-on training anytime. We have been associated with Arrow Digital since the first Vutek many years ago.”

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
