VINSAK (Hall 1, Stall H-02, PAMEX’15) has introduced the first direct laser engraving (DLE) system in India for Elastomers for Flexo which has been shipped for installation in India to the country’s leading flexible packaging company UFLEX Industries.
Slated to be a game changer in terms of offering flexo printers with the options of Elastomers plates and Sleeves, Uflex has once again shown that it always leads from the front in terms of technology adoption and utilisation.
P K Agarwal from Uflex said, “We have been looking at the DLE technology for a couple of years now and for all our wide web customers inhouse as well as overseas, the need to have solvent free plates and sleeves has become essential. After careful evaluation of all manufacturers, we found that the Hybrid technology being offered by Lead Lasers was ideal for us and for the Indian market. We are sure that the adoption of this technology will bring us to a position of market leadership in the flexo pre-press space as well in the near future.”
Arthur from Lead Laser said, “We are delighted with our relationship with VINSAK who gave us the opportunity of being able to install the first system in India which is a focus market for us in the near future. We continue to develop the DLE technology with a strong focus on the flexo market and believe very strongly that in the coming years Elastomers as plates and sleeves will offer the pre-press that flexo needs to get out of the dependence on Photosensitive materials which are neither eco-friendly nor easy to make or use.”
VINSAK re-affirms its pledge to the Indian market to bring technology ahead of the times to the country to enable the market to compete on a global scale in terms of quality. Ranesh Bajaj of VINSAK said, “Uflex has always been our key account in India and their appreciation of technology makes our work so much easier. While the competition is still offering variants of photosensitive plate production to improve print quality and perhaps keeping the Indian market devoid of access to Elastomers and DLE, our vision has always been to bring the latest to our customers and ensure that Indian packaging companies are at par with the globe if not ahead. This DLE installation is the first in India and perhaps the first in South Asia and Middle East as well.”
