Sonipat, Haryana-based Arihant Technopack has invested in a Nova RS 5003 gravure press from Bobst to scale up its growth. Established in 2009, with blown film and extrusion, lamination, printing and slitting facilities all in-house, the company manufactures a vast range of customised film, foil and paper-based laminate structures printed in up to nine colours. It also manufactures pre-formed pouches, including re-closeable pouches.

Ankit Jain, director, Arihant, said, the company was on the lookout for a printing press that would combine high speed with productivity and ensure that they could manufacture highest quality flexible packaging. “We decided to go with the Nova RS 5003 after evaluating various options available. With high productivity, automation and operator-friendly features, this new press will benefit us immensely in helping to significantly increase our gravure printing capacity while meeting our commitment towards quality and timely delivery,” he said.

The Nova RS 5003 fulfills all the needs of the Asian markets — from fast job setups and changeovers through to the highest print quality at speed across a broad variety of local ink types. In terms of sustainable operation, Registron best-in-class register control system minimises waste while the high-efficiency Twin Flow dryers and ventilation system give significant energy savings. 

“We know that the Nova RS 5003 press will boost the company’s production capacity, and we are confident that with Bobst’s gravure technology in house, we have a distinct advantage and a great opportunity to capture further market share in flexible packaging,” Jain concluded.
