Hyderabad’s Sreevan trusts Synchroline to print on flexibles

Hyderabad-based Sreevan The Offset Printers has invested in a Lombardi Synchroline 430 8C. According to Karunakar, MD and CEO of Sreeven, the company decided to get the machine because it understood that there was a latent demand for the ability to print short-run flexibles on a narrow-web press using flexo plates which have a lower cost of origination compared to gravure.

“The ability of the Lombardi to print from 12-microns unsupported films to 450-micron carton board material made it a natural choice for us. The market references provided were also impeccable with many customers having multiple installs of the machine which justified that the entire ecosystem of equipment, services and support was functioning well, thus enabling the convertor to succeed early,” he added.

Established in 2000, Sreeven The Offset Printers in Uppal, Hyderabad is a part of the group offering gravure cylinders, flex printing services, and now commercial, label printing and short-run flexibles in Telangana. In the near future, it aims to expand its line of products and services and cater to a larger client base as well.

Karunakar said, “Vinsak has been supportive and instrumental in helping us finalise on the Synchroline and then install and begin production even during the pandemic.”

“Dealing with Sreeven has been an absolute pleasure in terms of their professionalism in discussing the options necessary for the machine, the commercial terms as well their understanding of the end-user market,” added Mohan Pailwan, GM, Vinsak India.

For the future, Sreevan plans to cater to the shrink sleeves segment and also to exploit the board printing capabilities on the Synchroline.
