Sai Printo Pack gets it second RMGT press

New Delhi-based Sai Printo Pack has recently installed a RMGT four-colour 25x36-inches printing press. It is the company’s second RMGT press in two years. The first machine was installed in April 2017, and the recent installation took place in December 2019. The new machine is running at the company’s newly established print production plant in Noida. The earlier machine is housed at Sai Printo Pack’s 20-year-old plant in Okhla Industrial Area.

The new four-colour RMGT 920 ST printing press is equipped with programme inking with AI function, automatic nip checking mode, maintenance mode, automatic blanket cleaning device, automatic ink roller cleaning device. It can print a maximum sheet size 640x920-mm at the maximum printing speed of 16,200 sheets/hr.

Naresh Chandna, director, Sai Printo Pack, said, “We work for books publishers and most of the works come in 25x36-inches format. During our market search, we found that RMGT is the most cost-effective, technically advance and productive press in that segment. Thus, we went for our first RMGT press. We are running the press from more than last two years without any trouble, thanks to fantastic after-sales service from its Indian representative, Provin Technos. All these reasons gave us the confidence to opt for another press from the same manufacturer.”

The new RMGT will replace the company’s pre-owned 28x40-inches press as such sizes are not feasible in publishing business. The 25x36-inches is the perfect size because it saves on electricity, printing plates, space and paper,” Chandna said.

Sai Printo Pack specialises in law books. Recently, it produced a 3,000-page hardbound book for one of its clients.

Chandna is an arts graduate from Kurukshetra University and entered the industry in 1983 as a printing press supervisor. In 1992, he left his job started on his own. In 2000, he established Sai Printo Pack with a single-colour press.

Himanshu Chandna, second generation of the family, has now joined the business and is responsible for the Noida plant.

Chandna said that expansion is a gradual process. “We are planning to shift our entire print production from Okhla to Noida in the next two years. As the Delhi government is not supporting industries, doing business in Uttar Pradesh is more economical,” he added.
