Chinese company plans to manufacture flexible packaging on new press
TCPL Packaging Limited, one of India's largest manufacturers of printed folding cartons, has installed its third QuadTech inspection system to further drive printing efficiencies as it moves to support flexible packaging.
TCPL has a long-standing association with QuadTech, having first deployed QuadTech’s Autotron register guidance system in 1990. The latest QuadTech technology has been installed to support TCPL’s newest rotogravure press, a Bobst Rotomac 4003, which will enable the company to print tipping papers for the tobacco market, and to print on flexible materials. TCPL, one of the two largest converters of paperboard in India, is already servicing this sector using two existing rotogravure presses with incorporated QuadTech inspection systems, and has seen the benefits the 100 percent technology offers.
In addition to the inspection system, the order includes Data Central, PDF verification, waste management and web viewing systems, so equipping TCPL with a complete defect management workflow, according to QuadTech.
Biswadip Naha, TCPL plant manager, commented: ‘TCPL has a successful history of product performance and service support with QuadTech, so we specifically chose QuadTech over other possible suppliers. We are now using additional solutions from the QuadTech product portfolio and they are our supplier of choice for color and inspection technologies.
‘Our most recent investment will continue to ensure quality and dependability is maintained while dramatically reducing waste and above all safeguarding our reputation for packaging excellence.’
Amit Desai, area sales manager for India at QuadTech, added: ‘We were delighted that TCPL chose to continue working with QuadTech to support its expansion into flexible packaging. Not only does it clearly acknowledge our technology capabilities but it also demonstrates that as printing industry leaders we help to support significant business growth.’
