Established in 1950, Sivakasi-based Gupta Printers has invested in a Heidelberg Suprasetter A106 CtP. This acquisition marks the latest addition to investment by the company. The Suprasetter platesetter A106 CtP was installed to cater  their inhouse plate production. 

“When we made the decision to bring our prepress production in-house, the choice was  clear – Heidelberg was our top preference,” remarked Rajasekar, partner at Gupta Printers. 

Gupta Printers, a manufacturer and supplier of custom and printed boxes are known for their in-depth knowledge of raw materials. Gupta Printers is said to offer a complete packaging solution and is an ideal partner for companies that seek to outsource the packing and box design requirements. Gupta Printers manufactures printed cartons, packaging boxes, brochures, printed labels, sweet boxes, shirts, packaging, saree packaging, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and gift boxes. 

Rajasekar said, “Currently, we are in the expansion mode, have shifted to our 15,000 square feet production facility and are looking forward to additional development.” The Sivakasi-based print specialist also owns a Heidelberg CD 102 Speedmaster 4 + L press and two die-cutter and cutting equipment on the shopfloor and caters to packaging jobs across various segments.

The Suprasetter offers a minimum plate format of 370 millimeter height × 323 millimeter width and internal  punch up to 4 pairs of punches. The Prinect Pre-Press Manager, Prinect Meta Dimension, and Prinect Shooter is integrated workflow in the Heidelberg Suprasetter A106.  

The modular design of the Suprasetter A106 is said to supply maximum flexibility for the medium size format range. Their Intelligent Diode System (IDS) virtually eliminates production losses.  An integrated cooling system prevents adverse impacts from external temperatures.  Gupta Printers believes the investment will help them to fulfill the growing demand. “The  Heidelberg Suprasetter has enhanced our productivity to a larger scale,” concluded Rajasekar. 

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.
