India’s first Lombardi Flexoline Plus
Meanwhile, Vinsak also booked four more orders at the event for Lombardi machines which will be installed by March 2019. Mumbai-based Prakruti Graphics booked a Lombardi Flexoline Plus press. This would be the first Flexoline Plus from the house of Lombardi to be installed in India. Prakruti plans to use the press for printing labels with foiling, security and tamper evident labels primarily for the pharmaceutical and FMCG industry. The Flexoline Plus is a servo press without a line shaft offering servo-driven plate cylinders. The press is equipped with pre-register control for setting up jobs fast, with less wastage.
Sells eight USAR machines
On the finishing line, the company displayed two Vinsak USAR machines, one with a Vinsak Inkjet system and a Lake image camera for 100% verification. The second Vinsak USAR was equipped with the Domino K600i Inkjet system, a registered diecutting unit, inspection system and dual slitting and rewinding options. Vinsak sold as many as eight USAR machines at the show to customers from India, Bangladesh and East Africa. The all new Vinsak USAR is modular in nature which allows customers to configure slitter re-winder, diecutting, 100% inspection system and inkjet system according to their requirements. With all major components driven by servo motors, the equipment runs at a speed of 300 meters per minute. It is backed by powerful software and features a HMI display for easy job set-up and single window operation.
