Emba highlighted three installations of 175 QS Ultima machines in India with the latest one at Girnar Packaging in 2014. It has installed one machine each at Dhanalaxmi Group in 2011 and South India Paper Mills in 2012.
According to Chiranjeevi Sastry, sales manager-SAARC nations for Emba Machinery, Emba was the pioneer of flexo folder-gluer (FFG) technology in the world when it introduced its first FFG in 1968.
175 QS Ultima features Emba’s patented non-crush technology. “The machine is designed to prevent crushing of the flutes from start to finish. This has been made possible with the help of Emba’s ultima feeder and vacuum transport technology,” said Sastry.
The USP of the machine as Sastry said is the ‘no feed roller’ concept which helps achieve enhanced feeding register accuracy even with light grade corrugated board at high speeds. “Also the kiss touch printing introduced by Emba has become an industry benchmark,” added Sastry.
The other USP which Sastry stated is the after-sales service provided by the Emba team. Emba established the Indian sales and service centre in Hyderabad in 2005.
