Ludhiana-based Agarwal Graphics has upgraded its capacity with the installation of a Kodak Trendsetter Platesetter, supplied and installed by Monotech Systems, a machine manufacturer and a provider of solutions for the printing and packaging industry globally.
Established in the year 1990, Agarwal Graphics has been a popular printing service bureau working for a handful of clients from all over Punjab and neighboring areas. It has a pre-press facility and is equipped with a line of high-end machines and equipment. “We have been supplying plates to some of the leading printing companies and publishers in the region,” says Ashok Agarwal, chairman, and managing director, Agarwal Graphics.
“We maintain value and quality in the production of thermal plates using best-in-class platesetters installed in our production facility. With a target of producing more than 500 plates during our daily working hours, we strive for a heavy-duty digital plate-setter. With the installation of a new Kodak Trendsetter Platesetter, we are empowered to meet our target.”
Earlier, Agarwal Graphics used to produce UV plates using a basysPrint UV-Setter. Agarwal said they needed another advanced and upgraded platesetter for faster production, and so they opted for Kodak.
“We had taken the right decision to choose the Kodak Trendsetter Platesetter X-speed with Kodak software from Monotech Systems. This platesetter meets all our requirements to fulfill the demands of our customers.”
Kodak Trendsetter 800 Platesetter is an ideal system capable of producing thermal plates up to 33×45 inches. It drives maximum productivity at a reduced cost of production for Agarwal Graphics. Agarwal said they are now capable of achieving more accurate and stable imaging using the new Kodak Trendsetter Platesetter.
On the company’s activities, Agarwal said they have introduced a new division called Agarwal Processor. “My son Shivam will look after the new division,” he informs. He said they look forward to strengthening their ties with Monotech Systems. In addition to thermal plates, Agarwal Graphics supplies inks, chemicals, and other products from brands such as Micro Inks around Punjab and J&K.
