2020 in review
We also delivered hot-foil stamping machines, slitter-rewinders and UV curing systems to leading printers worldwide. It was the busiest period for UV Graphics with seven new orders just after the lockdown.

Plans for 2021
We will be launching a host of new products which will include semi-rotary die-cutting, inline rotary and flat screen, quick change die-cutting, flatbed die-cutting and hot-foil stamping to run inline at 150-m/min. Digital printing and finishing is also part of our plans for 2021.

Most popular kit in 2020
Ultraflex UFO multi-substrate press which can print from 10-micron film to 400-gsm carton Stock with IMT (instant makeready technology).

Investment stories
The Shree Multi Services is a business started by two brothers, Pramod and Umesh Dongre in the outskirts of Pune in 2011 to print barcode labels. Soon they realised the potential in labels and bought a six-colour used flexo press. Although it was a dream come true, they could never get orders for high quality labels as the press was too old.

They started looking for a new machine, and after two years, they set their eyes on an Ultraflex UFO 9 and instantly finalised the press. Now, they have placed an order for a Ultraflex UFO 8 with special features and options scheduled for delivery in the beginning of January 2021.
