Sain Packaging opts for Dayuan die-cutter

Sonipat-based Sain Packaging has installed the MHK 1050ACER die-cutter from Dayuan Machinery to strengthen its post-press. It is the third big investment from the packaging company in the recent past. Previously, the company had invested in a Heidelberg printing press and a Bobst folder-gluer.

Sachin Gupta, managing director, Sain Packaging, said, “The new press and the new folder-gluer are capable of converting at a fast speed but die-cutting was not able to meet the pace. We were facing a bottleneck in the area. That’s why we opted for a new die-cutter.”

Gupta said the machine’s micro-embossing and cutting pressure of more than 600 tonnes and patented precision control technology were the main reasons to opt for the die-cutter. “The product and technology knowledge of Prem Vishwakarma of Robus India was another reason. He has the appropriate understanding of a printer’s requirement with economical options,” he added.

The machine is equipped with a stripping option and can convert cutsheet size of 28x40-inches at the speed of 7,500 sheets an hour. The company is also planning to convert E-flute cartons on the machine.

According to Gupta, the new machines have helped the company achieve fast conversion with zero rejection. “Our product quality, customer satisfaction and business all are growing with the new machines. Our appetite has increased and we have hired a business development team to feed the automatic machines. We achieved sales of Rs 7.5-crore last month, for the first time,” he said.

The company already had die-cutters from two pre-owned Bobst die-cutters, Excel Machinery and four semi-automatic die-cutting machines. Its present capacity is 35-40 lakh cartons per day, and is converting 15-20 lakh per day.

“In the future, we are working to synchronise the existing machines and setup. We are also establishing a five-acre new print production plant. It will be completed within a year or so,” Gupta said.

Gupta established the pharma packaging company in 2004 on the suggestion of a family friend with a single-colour offset in Burari, Delhi. Gradually, Sain Packaging grew and now it converts 400 to 450 tonnes of packaging boards per month in a 65,000-sqft production area. The total area of the plant is 2,025-sqm. “We can even produce 100 cartons on offset. And on the higher side, there is no limit,” Gupta said.

He said being a pharma packaging printer, 99% of the jobs come under 25x37-inches press. “But all of our existing presses are 28x40-inches. So, we decided to go for the 28x40-inches die-cutter,” he added.

The company, which exports around 10% of its total production to Nepal, also has an in-house corrugation facility.

“Our present turnover is more than Rs 60-crore and we are working to achieve Rs 100-crore soon,” he said.

Gupta runs the business with his father Mitter Sain, son Sanchit Gupta and a team of 250 people.

Prem Vishwakarma of Robus India said, “When a growing and renowned packaging printing company like Sain Packaging opts for our die-cutter, it’s our responsibility to serve the industry better with more affordable products.”
