Among the three Mark Andy P7 presses, two will be ten-colour and one will be 12-colour narrow-web flexo. One machine will be installed within a month or so, and the rest will be installed at a later date.

The eight Rotoflex devices includes two VSI 330 with 100% inspection system, VLI 440 with special configuration and DLI 440 an offline high performance die-cutter for thinner substrates. Five Rotoflex equipment will be delivered this year and the rest three will be delivered the next year.

All the equipment will be installed at Zircon’s new plant in Dehradun. It will be the company’s fourth plant in the city.

Sanjeev Sondhi of Zircon Technologies said all the equipment will be installed in the new plant by next year.

“We have a long and strong relationship with both Mark Andy and Rotoflex. So the decision-making process was easy and quick,” Sondhi said. “As a label printing company, we always believe that printing quality is obvious and you need strong post-press to deliver the final product and that’s why we went for eight Rotoflex with three printing presses.”
