Prakash Offset Printers has an array of Heidelberg presses from Heidelberg M offset to Speedmaster XL 75 and Speedmaster SM 102. Also, Prakash Offset Printers had installed India’s first Heidelberg SX 52 Anicolor press in 2014; and a complete range of Polar cutting and Stahlfolder folding machines on their shopfloor with three Suprasetter equipment.

Prakash Offset Printers has two units in Mangalore – the pre-press unit located at the heart of the city spread across 5,000 sq/ft area, and the production is unit located at Baikampady industrial estate on a 35,000 sq/ft operational area, catering to commercial, book publishing, packaging, printing and folding carton conversion.

PR Nayak, director at Prakash Offset Printers, said, “We were certain about our investment right from day one. The Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 is a rewarding equipment. We have been using Heidelberg Suprasetter CtP equipment for over a decade, and the performance and quality are exemplary.”

“The Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 is known for its proven record-breaking performances. We are very sure about the investment as it will enable us to grow and give amazing services to our valuable customers,” added Nayak.

Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 supports the firm for its upgradations and growth. It has boosted productivity and has given Prakash Offset Printers a more advanced pressroom. The modular design of the Suprasetter A 106 provides maximum flexibility for the medium-size print format. The patented laser system by Heidelberg offers excellent imaging quality. The production reliability is ensured through the Intelligent Diode System (IDS), which means that if a diode fails, the operation can continue.

The Suprasetter offers a consistently high depth of focus to compensate for unevenness in the plates. The temperature of all the components relevant to imaging is maintained at constant levels. The imaging of the printing plates always takes place under the same condition – a performance feature particularly beneficial for plate remakes. Any deviations caused by ambient temperature change are avoided, as this maintains the high register accuracy with the printing plates allowing a faster makeready on press and a minimum of waste.

The Suprasetter A 106 CtP has a dimension of 84.65 widths × 58.82 depth × 60.47 height (inches), with a minimum plate format of 370 height x 323 widths (mm); and a maximum plate format of 930 height × 1,060 widths (mm) and has a resolution of 2,400 dpi.
