Established in 1990, Agarwal Graphics works for clients from all over Punjab and the neighbouring areas. “We have been supplying plates to some of the leading printing companies and publishers in the region,” Ashok Agarwal, chairman and managing director, Agarwal Graphics, said.

Agarwal added, “We maintain value and quality in the production of thermal plates using best-in-class platesetters installed in our production facility. With a target of producing more than 500 plates during our daily working hours, we always strive for a heavy-duty digital platesetter. With the installation of the Kodak Trendsetter, we are now empowered to meet our target.” 

Earlier, Agarwal Graphics used to produce UV plates using basysPrint. Agarwal said the company was in need of another advanced and upgraded platesetter for faster production. So, it opted for the Kodak Trendsetter.

“We have had the right decision on choosing the Kodak Trendsetter Platesetter X-speed with Kodak software from Monotech Systems. Ever since the installation of the advanced thermal platestter in our facility, we never looked back. This platesetter finally meets all our requirements to fulfil the sheer demands from our customers — faster and friendlier. 

Kodak Trendsetter 800 Platesetter is an ideal system capable of producing thermal plates up to 33x45-inches. It drives maximum productivity at a reduced cost of production for Agarwal Graphics. Many automation features and the integrated punch system of the machine trigger faster and flexible plate production. 

The company has recently introduced a new division called Agarwal Processor. “My son Shivam will look after the new division. As of now, he’s pursuing BTech IT, and so he’s not able to devote full time to the business,” he said. He added that the company looks forward to strengthening its ties with Monotech Systems, which is a driving force for it to expand in business. 

In addition to thermal plates, Agarwal Graphics supplies inks, chemicals, and other products from brands like Micro Inks around Punjab and J&K.
