At the 15th Printpack India, The Printers House (TPH) known for its single-width Orient web offset presses installed in approximately fifty countries, talked about a number of new initiatives that it has taken in the recent past. The company has launched a new web offset press, and a new consumables division. In addition, it will soon unveil its new webfed inline flexo press.
Kohli began by talking about the inline flexo press that has been under development for the last two years and is now getting ready to be launched. “This project was two years in the making. We have tied up with an Italian designer. What we are launching is an online flexo press that can print on film. We will officially launch this press around August or September this year. It will be affordable for a large majority of the market and will target packaging printers who are currently using gravure technology. Soon after that, we will launch our label press and then a wide width press for the sheet fed market,” Kohli said.
Compact and affordable web offset press
TPH has also launched a new web offset press that is compact in size and affordable. “Innovative and compact, this press is different from other web offset presses. It is a line contact system. And we have already got orders for a couple of units. With this press, customers can reduce operating expenses by 15% compared with their existing presses. Its’ compact size helps them save space and it is very affordable,” Kohli said.
The company has recently set up its consumables division that supplies plates, chemicals, and blankets. “This division was launched just a couple of months ago and is doing very well,” he said.
