Any Graphics, at its state-of-the-art label & carton plant, has recently installed the brand new fully loaded 7-color UV Heidelberg XL75 plus coater press, a Bobst Novacut diecutter and a Bobst VisionFold folder-gluer.
The new high configuration press and converting equipment will supplement the extensive existing monocarton infrastructure in boosting the company’s solutions for the top FMCG brands in the country. “We considered several presses with varying sizes initially. After speaking to my friends in the US and Europe and with my own understanding, I was convinced that this was the best press and the correct size for packaging which suited my requirements. It has double-circumference impression cylinders, registration is perfect and the controls are better. With the efficiency of the high configuration Heidelberg 7-color press which has some useful customization, we hope to create a new kind of opportunity such as the ability to add opaque white with finer print quality, print FDA approved food packaging on virtually any substrate,” said Kuldip Goel.
“In the last four years — the period when we entered the carton segment, our investments have been more than Rs. 70 crore. In this year itself, we invested about Rs. 30 crore in getting new machinery and equipment. This is because implementation of ideas needs good equipment,” he added.
Naveen Goel, Director, Any Graphics takes care of the production processes of the plant. He asserts, “Value-addition, innovation and quality are the three pillars on which our company stands. After we got into cartons four years back, there was a bit of scepticism in the market regarding the response or the success that we could achieve and we are happy to say that it took us less than a year to establish our reputation in this new segment.”
Presently, Any Graphics is in the FMCG, cosmetics and pharma segments although it is looking to further enhance its penetration in pharma and enter new segments such as alcobev.
