Vinsak, the exclusive distributor of Lombardi Synchroline presses in the Indian sub-continent, has announced the sale of two presses on the first day of Labelexpo India 2018.
While Delhi-based Polylam Printers has opted for an 8-color Lombardi Synchroline 430 flexo label printing press, Ahmedabad-based Prakash Printers has invested in an 8-color Lombardi Synchroline 530 press. Both presses are on display at the show floor from November 22-25.
The Lombardi Synchroline 430 press is equipped with a Toro flatbed hot foil system and a hologram unit. Vishal Pasricha, owner of Polylam Printers, said: ‘The Toro unit provides hologram in setting, hot foil and embossing technologies in-line with a single operation at high speed with accurate register.’
Other features include delam relam, turnbar, cold foil, two die-cutting unit, sheeter and conveyor, web cleaner, corona treatment. ‘As we grow our market in doing value added jobs for liquor and cosmetic industries, the need for a European press with higher print quality, less wastage and hologram and fresnel lens insetting features was what we needed. After careful evaluation of both technical features as well as local after-sales support, we narrowed down on the Lombardi press,’ Pasricha added.
The Lombardi Synchroline 530, on the other hand, will be Prakash Printers second Lombardi press with the first 430mm wide 8-color machine installed in 2017.
Equipped with a crossover unit for printing multilayer labels, this press can reach a maximum of three printed layers. Prakash Shivlani, director, Prakash Printers, said: ‘We realised the need for a wider press and hence ordered a second Lombardi press to meet our market demands. This press will mainly be used to print 12-micron unsupported film and multilayer labels which are a value add in our food and pharmaceutical markets.’
Citing benefits of multilayer labels, Mohan Pailwan, general manager, Vinsak explained: ‘These are often used for pharmaceutical and medical label applications, especially when government regulations require product information to remain intact with the product. With a multilayer label, the customer also has the option of adding recipes on food labels, offer detailed instructions, give multilingual information’s, attracts buyers with coupons and display legal text.’
Neeraj Sharma, executive director at Vinsak, added: ‘Differentiation on the shelf space is the need of the hour. Embellishments offered by the Toro unit and the crossover unit are quite unique in the market. Lombardi and Vinsak are happy to have emerged successful in bagging these prestigious orders.’
