Ahmedabad-based Aman Die Makers recently installed a new digital cutting system – Zund S3 M-800 – to cater to the increasing customer demand. The M-800 was installed at the company’s 45,000-sqft factory cum design studio at Devraj Industrial Park in Ahmedabad.

Aman Die Makers is run by the father-son duo, Selvam and Aman Naidu. Aman is the general manager at the company. Established in 1998, Aman Die Makers had a very humble start with a small shop of 300 sqft. The company specialises in print converting jobs and manufactures laser dies with European machineries and raw material. Over the past 24 years, the company has grown tremendously in terms of our client reach, turnover, employees and of course infrastructure. “We recently moved to a lavish 45,000-sqft set-up, which is in line with complete European standards of quality,” says Aman.

Added to that, the company boasts of strong round-the-clock operations, with three shifts and a team of 45 “well-trained and super-efficient” technicians. “We also get backbone support through our automated IT processes and ERP system,” he adds. Ambitious investments According to Aman, meeting customers’ demand prompted the company to invest in new machinery, “so that we could compete with world market leaders in our sector”. Aman’s competitive spirit was evident in the company’s investments.

Aman Die Makers has invested around Rs 13 crores in machinery itself. “We believe in quality, and it is our motto to produce the best. Hence, we have invested in top-ofthe- line machinery in laser cutting from Lasercomb, Germany; auto bending from Serviform, Italy; and CNC and digital cutting system From Zund Swiss,” says Aman. Reaping benefits Prior to the investment, according to Aman, processes were “extremely time consuming and labour intensive”, leading to times when the company was unable to completely cater to the quality and on-time delivery requirements of its clients. “We had to put in a lot of hard work without the commensurate results,” says Aman.

To address this, the company decided to invest in the best machinery possible to get the best output. Speaking about the selection of machinery, Aman says, “We knew several cheaper options were available, but our father-son team was convinced that to be the No.1 in India, we needed to invest in the best machines, infrastructure and people.” This mindset reaped results. Aman says that the company achieved consistent quality output, faster production cycle, low maintenance and almost zero breakdown.

Added to that, the company’s waste generated after rubber-cutting operations has been significantly reduced. “Earlier, on an average we used to get about 45% wastage in raw material. Now, we could see a steep reduction of up to 15-20% and 50% increased production capability,” says Aman. Service and training According to Aman, operating the new machine “is very simple” once adequate training was imparted to the operator. “We have a robust machine training plan in place as well for this.

The machine has been in full-power production right from the moment it was installed,” he adds. He also explained how helpful and supportive the Zund India service team was throughout the installation. “They patiently helped us understand all the processes and the functioning of the machine,” says Aman. “We have had very humble beginnings, but our ambitions burn bright. We have a goal of growing by 40% every year. We want to become the first point of recall for the biggest printing presses in India,” Aman concludes.
