OMET Holds Folding Carton Open House in India

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

The Open House will be held on on 20th April 2012. Narendra Paruchuri lead Pragatipack, a celebrated Indian company involved in producing print packaging and based in Hyderabad India, has always been in the forefront for indulging in new technologies. They have taken a historical step of opting to install an “Omet Varyflex”, the in-line folding carton press. Pragatipack is a family owned company where three generations are passionately involved in turning out state of the art printed products. They are a company for whom winning awards for print excellence both at national level and international level is a way of life. They won the Sappi Elephant award in 2006, 2008 and again in 2010.

The main features of Omet Varyflex installed at Pragati is a flexographic platform machine with the facility for rotogravure, cold foil and a silk screen cassette in every position of the press. Those are main added values which go along with the high quality of the flexo UV printing and in-line converting. In such configuration the press can perform, all in one pass, those high added value jobs which would otherwise request several off-line passes to be completed. It is therefore possible to print, reverse print, foil, overprinting, metalizing, relief printing and converting, all in one pass.

The Omet Varyflex V2 Carton is a revolutionary package printing press for offset printers. It is a special design dedicated to inline carton printing and converting. It is ideal for food, tobacco, fast moving consumer goods, pharma and cosmetic packaging. Omet Varyflex V2 carton is a complementary technology for offset and gravure printers who are aiming to do value added/short run jobs.

Hemanth Paruchuri and all the team at Pragati are excited about the capabilities of this press. He says “We're excited about the wide range of substrates that can be printed on the press, from 12 micron all the way up to 600! It's very important for us to know what opportunities this'll bring to us in the carton side of business. Very versatile and there are a lot of avenues we can target!”

Post installation of OMET VARYFLEX IN-LINE FOLDING CARTON PRESS at PRAGATI PACK, HYDERABAD, , an “Open House “at Pragati Pack is being held on the 20th of April 2012,to showcase this path breaking technology. The event is combined with a half day conference to showcase how complete solutions in Flexo technology can be integrated to print, offset or gravure-like results on this machine. This event is being organized by Omet’s exclusive agent in India Weldon Celloplast Limited, New Delhi, in partnership with ESKO and DUPONT. Also being showcased will be the advantages of Automatic Butt Splicing machines from Martin Automatic, to demonstrate how non-stop production saves time money and assures stable print quality. Leading package printing companies and label printing companies from South East Asia are expected to attend this premium event and experience how technology can add VALUES to their work and BENEFITS to their organization.
