Earlier, with a commitment to offer the very best products and services using cutting-edge technologies, the company had invested in its first Bobst rotogravure printing press, the 5002, in 2017.

Jupiter, which started as a manufacturer of converting machines two decades ago, has since acquired a reputation as a manufacturer of flexible packaging materials for a wide range of market sectors, including food, beverage, healthcare, pet care, industrial, security and anti-counterfeiting.

The company is using its first Bobst machine to print on film, paper and laminates for flexible packaging.

Kaushik Nag, CEO, flexibles and CPP, Jupiter Laminators, said, “We carried out a lot of research before buying and compared numerous presses against each other to ensure that the one we chose would do exactly what we required. We knew we were looking for a press that would be cost-effective while delivering sustainable production. Bobst was able to demonstrate that their machine could do just that. We also liked the registration system, shaftless mechanism of the cylinder and fast job setting. The unique twin flow dryer for more efficient drying also proved a selling point for us.”

Nag added that with the machine, the company has been able to achieve consistently high print quality, on a wide range of materials, including eco-friendly substrates. “In addition, we have noticed a significant reduction in wastage since the installation. Features such as effective web handling, accurate tension control from unwinder to rewinder, fast job changeovers, wastage reduction and print quality consistency have all helped to boost and improve our production. For us as a business, consistency is critical as it enables us to offer a uniform quality to our clients.”

Also, the machine is operator-friendly. “Our operators are very happy to use it,” he said. “Today, we run most of our jobs on it, including important job runs, purely because of the consistent high-quality print that it delivers time and again.”

Nag concluded, “For any converters looking for maximum uptime, ease of operation, high quality print and advanced sustainable solutions, Bobst can deliver. We have not had any issues with the machine and service has always been timely.”
