This includes two RMGT 760 presses - a five-colour and a four-colour machine; and a RMGT 1050 four-colour machine.

Vinay Kaushal, director, Provin Technos, said, “The first day was very fruitful. This is just the beginning, we will have few more announcements by the end of the show.”

Besides this, the RMGT 925 five-colour plus coater press being demonstrated at Provin’s stand was picked up by Vadodara-based Ravi Printers.

The machine will be shipped immediately after the show, said Kaushal.

Ravi Printers’ owner Anil Patel said, “We were looking to invest in a UV press which is suitable for packaging applications and comes fully loaded with automation. We saw several presses at Drupa and then started evaluating the technical specifications that the machine could offer. We found RMGT to fit the bill.”

The new RMGT will replace Ravi Printers’ existing five-colour Heidelberg SM74 press.

Ravi Printers, which is managed by the Patel brothers - Anil, Ajit and Ketan, produces cartons and leaflets for pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.

The machine purchased by Ravi Printers is equipped with multi wavelength LED UV system, also supplied by Provin.

According to Kaushal, the multi wavelength LED can cure conventional UV inks with a LED lamp. “Therefore, Ravi Printers will be able to get the benefits of LED technology without having to spend on costly LED inks.”
