Varyflex V2 for carton printing at Pragati Pack
September 16, 2012
Narendra Paruchuri is the owner of Pragati Pack, a celebrated company involved in the production of packaging and based in Hyderabad India. Pragati Pack has always been at the forefront for what concerns new technologies and took a historical step in 2012 when they opted to install a Varyflex V2 in-line folding carton press by OMET. Pragati Pack is a family-owned company where three generations are passionately involved in the production of state-of-the-art printed products, which won important awards for print excellence both at national and international level like the Sappi Elephant Award in 2006, 2008 and again in 2010.
The Varyflex V2 flexo platform press installed at Pragati features a combination of UV flexo, rotogravure, cold foil and a silk screen in every position of the press. Multi-process is the main added value along with the quality of UV flexo printing and in-line converting. In such configuration the press can process in one pass, any added value job, which would otherwise request several passages offline to be completed. It is therefore possible to print, reverse print, foil, overprint, metallize, relief print and convert.
OMET Varyflex V2 in Pragati special carton configuration is a revolutionary package printing press mainly conceived for offset printers who aim at increasing their margin performance on complex short runs jobs. Its special design suits perfectly carton printing and converting and is ideal for food, tobacco, fast moving consumer goods, pharma and cosmetic packaging.
Hemanth Paruchuri with the entire Team at Pragati are still excited about the capabilities of this press. “We are impressed with the wide range of substrates that can be printed on the press, from 12 micron all the way up to 600!”, he informs. “It’s very important for us to measure what opportunities this will bring to us in the carton business. The press is very versatile and offers countless possibilities of expansion.”
