“After thorough research and analysis, we chose Kodak, and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The thermal technology is second to none, and the CTPs Kodak manufactures are top-of-the-line, providing us with the precision and accuracy we need to produce flawless prints,” Achal Aggarwal, founder and director of Druck Media, said. 

Druck Media is one of the largest providers of commercial printing, binding, and pre-press services in India with FSC COC, ISO 9001, 14001 & 45001 certifications. The company’s manufacturing plant is spread across 20,000-sqm to cater to worldwide customers with massive print and post print capacities. 

Founded in 2008, Druck Media has 120 employee strengths. It was incorporated as HT Burda Media, a joint venture between Burda Druck and Hindustan Times. In 2013, Burda Druck became the sole owner of the company and the name was changed to Burda Druck, which was later renamed to Druck Media in 2021. 

The Veriset platesetter is an open CTP system that accommodates a wide range of thermal plates, providing users with the flexibility to choose the most suitable option for their specific needs. Furthermore, the innovative Lens Contamination Avoidance (LCA) technology enables compatibility with low to medium debris-generating plates, thereby reducing plate costs while eliminating the need for an expensive debris removal system. The LCA technology incorporates an active air curtain and a removable, easy-to-clean window, which effectively keeps debris away from the imaging laser, guaranteeing optimal performance.

“At Druck Media, we believe in providing our customers with the best quality, and we knew that investing in low-budget, low-quality machines would not meet our standards hence Kodak CTP was the only suitable solution,” Aggarwal added.

Ajay Aggarwal, MD and CEO at Insight, said, “We’re dedicated to providing innovative solutions that empower our customers to achieve their goals in a sustainable way. We promote Veriset CTP bundled with Sonora process-free plates to reduce environmental footprints for companies that are committed to green printing solutions like Druck Media.”
