As Sanjay Agarwal, who is the founder of Shruti Enterprises said, "We produce exam paperwork with speed and quality for Lucknow University." He added, "One project we are proud of is the 70-lakh answer sheets which were delivered by us with quick turnaround in the most minimal of time."

Shruti employs 25 across the firm in a single-shift. The production team (both offset and digital personnel) have been busy on the print floor of 2,200 sq/ft and have notched up a turnover of Rs five crore.

Agarwal said, one quality book project they were able to maximise due to the Sigloch 500 was the spiritual book Gunguru which was rendered through perfect binding. He said, "This feature was noticed and admired by the readers." In addition to exam work and religious books, the team at Shruti manufactures poetry books and school diaries.

The tech support for the Sigloch has been extremely good. Agarwal said, "As per my experience, the machine is very good for perfect binding jobs." He added, "Sigloch500 from Bindwel is user-friendly, and my team and I are completely satisfied with the performance of the machine."

Ajay Nagar, head, digital post press of Bindwel said, "Our experience with SigLoch shows that it’s no longer about how quick the equipment is but what more it can offer a customer. This includes sturdiness, the resilience, automation and quality of the book produced. These are some of the things we will showcase during Drupa to automate our equipment and at the same time, simplify the user experience while achieving even better results." 

Nagar signed off, "The key in post-press for a digital print shop is to help printers to reposition their skilled workforce to more important and profitable areas of the business." And this is what Bindwel has achieved at Shruti Enterprises in Lucknow.
