Esko has been successful in strengthening its position in India, with the demo centre in place at its Bengaluru premises and multiple installations of Kongsberg digital cutting table. Which includes installations at Galaxy Offset, Manohar Packaging, Ajanta packaging, Global Packaging, Ficus Pax, Sapphire Digital, Colour Mate, JDC Graphics and Glo Color Labs.
The fully configured Kongsberg XN24 table at the demo centre will help the company to showcase the strength and capabilities of the machine. “The customers can use the demo facility to see first-hand how Kongsberg table handles a vast range of applications: from vinyl kiss-cutting over packaging mock-ups, to heavy-duty milling and flexo plate cutting,” said Niranjan Delavictoire, General Manager, Esko South Asia.
The firms who have invested in Kongsberg cutting table levarage it to produce signage, POP displays, automotive decals, protective packaging, speciality packaging, exhibition displays, photo albums, wedding cards. “We offer the most innovative products in photo application and we required the best technology to achieve this. Hence we chose Esko’s Kongsberg XE10,” said Ramanan, Glo Colour Labs.
The Chandigarh-based Samgul Graphics & Printers has recently upgraded its existing i-XL24 with a PowerHead and V-notch cutting. Delavictoire explained that the PowerHead is designed for heavy duty materials such as double wall, triple wall and recycled corrugated board, plus the newest environmental boards.
“The Esko Kongsbergi-XL 24 has given us the flexibility to work on smaller and diversified orders while maintaining productivity, proficiency and profitability. Also, with our recent acquisition of the PowerHead Toolhead, we are confident that it will help us create a niche in the honeycomb/re-board segment,” said Sameer Bindra, Samgul Graphics & Printers.
“The Kongsberg table is easily the most versatile and expandable platform in the digital finishing market. It provides an investment safety net to take on new profitable business,” added Delavictoire.
