Globally, the total count of Multitec’s narrow-web flexo printing presses has reached 171 now.
Amit Ahuja of Multitec said, “The show is fantastic for us, as it always has been. Besides these two deals, we expect to close five or more deals by the end of Labelexpo India.”
Of these two machines, one will go to Hyderabad-based Team Labels and another to Zambia-based Print Fast.
B Murali, director, Team Labels, who was at the show on Day Three, said, “We have an imported narrow-web flexo printing press with us and wanted to invest in an Indian machine to meet the increased demand of labels with economic price. We found the Multitec kit suitable for us.”
Both are presses are eight-colour, all station servo driven, UV from GEW, 330 mm web width and online foiling, turn bar and other advance features.
Murali said that the company is expecting a 30% growth in its existing business after the installation of the machine. After the install, the company plans to convert 200,000 sq/m of labelstock. “Presently, we are converting 150,000 sq/m,” Murali added.
At the show, Multitec is also showcashing LED UV from GEW running on the company’s VSI Servo S2. “We are the only manufacturer at the show which is running live demonstrations of LED UV. This is our speciality to do the things first,” Ahuja concluded.
