Mark Andy, the market leader in narrow-web printing press solutions, announces two Performance Series machine sales in India, signaling early acceptance of the new press line in this growing region. Both machines are scheduled to be installed in early 2011.
Industries, producer of pressure-sensitive labels, stickers and tags based out
of Maharashtra, purchased the first
Performance Series P5 to be installed in the country. The converter has
invested in an 8-color, 13 inch (330 mm) wide machine, complete with a rail
system, web turnbar and cold foil unit. A Mark Andy loyalist, K. N. Bhat and Prasanna
Sahu of Barcom Industries is quite upbeat of the fact that Barcom will be the first
owner to get a P5 in India.
to the company, "The Performance Series press line encompasses
state-of-the-art flexographic print technology with a uniquely engineered
print-head design and extremely fast make-ready times. The addition of the P5
will not only bring to us advanced technology but will also offer a
high-quality, servo-driven press at a reasonable price."
Packaging has also invested in a Performance Series P5. The company
is a leading supplier of corrugated boxes and self-adhesive labels. The 10 inch
(250 mm) wide, 8-color press will add to the broad printing and converting
capabilities already in place at Astron. The press is outfitted with extensive
options including chilled impression rolls, a rail system to house a web
turnbar, cold foil unit and a rotary screen head, and a rotary hot foil stamp
unit, all to further enhance Astron's capacity.
Niraj Darji of Astron Packaging says, "We went in for the Performance
Series because of its innovative print platform and the machine's consistently
high print quality. It is sure to benefit our customers as their demand levels
at our end are steadily increasing and with this addition, we are sure to
continue meeting our customers' expectations. Not only is the press highly
efficient but is also very user friendly due to its simple design."
Given the success of the Performance Series in India,
Gourav Roy, managing director of Flexo Image Graphics (FIG), Mark Andy's
authorized dealer for India,
is quite optimistic of installing more Performance Series presses in the
immediate future. Says Gourav, "Barcom Industries and Astron Packaging
were seeking new servo machines with advanced capabilities to add to their
existing range. After looking at traditional offerings, we presented them the
latest servo technology in the Performance Series line. And both were
immediately taken by the P5's groundbreaking productivity platform."
The Performance Series P5 and P3 can both be seen this week at Labelexpo India in the
FIG and Mark Andy stand, B35. The event runs from 8th - 11th of December at
Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.
