Chandni Industries installs Heidelberg Suprasetter A106 CtP with Prinect workflow
Sonepat-based Chandni Industries has invested in a new Heidelberg Suprasetter A106 CtP with Prinect production pre-press workflow as a part of the prepress division expansion. The brand new Suprasetter has been installed at the Haryana factory, which is spread over 15000 sq/ft.
The company diversified the business into playing cards and focused on the playing cards segment as a manufacturer since 1980. According to Vipul Jain, Managing Director, Chandni Industries, “The company had begun its journey in 1961 as a candle manufacturer, later moved to the printing business in 1980, catering to playing cards manufacturing segment. We are specialized in paper-printed playing cards, plastic cards, and customized playing cards. With recent investment in Suprasetter and Prinect Workflow, Chandni has diversified in the paper board packaging segment to produce mono cartons, brown paper and board products. As the core business of our products, we will launch our printed stationery products and gift wrapping in a couple of months to cater to diverse clients.”
The Heidelberg Suprasetter A106 CtP comes with a maximum plate format of 930 height × 1,060 widths mm with a resolution of 2,400 dpi and internal punches up to 4 pairs. The modular design of the Heidelberg Suprasetter A106 provides Chandni Industries with maximum flexibility for the medium-size format range. The Intelligent Diode System (IDS) virtually eliminates production losses. An integrated cooling system prevents adverse impacts from external temperatures.
“We get good service support from Heidelberg, and the team is always available for troubleshooting, as Heidelberg is just a call away for any queries. In 2017, we invested in Heidelberg SM 74, the press performed well, and the production output was beyond our expectations. Hence, we bought another Heidelberg SM 74 with a coater in 2020. Now, we purchased a Suprasetter CtP and Proman workflow from Heidelberg. After investing in Proman, we save a lot of time in pre-press; especially designing, step and repeat jobs with packaging design. Heidelberg’s Suprasetter and Speedmaster SM 74 presses have enhanced our productivity to a larger scale,” added Jain.
The Suprasetter model can also be upgraded with a Dual Cassette Loader (DCL) for fully automated operation. The DCL works with one or two-plate cassettes for different plate formats and types. When using an Auto Pallet Loader (APL) be sure that the plate production is working with maximum efficiency because the APL can automatically load printing plates on a transport pallet.
Robert Joseph, Business Head – Consumables and CtP Solutions at Heidelberg, said, “The Suprasetter A106 Ctp equipment is designed in a way that any deviations caused by ambient temperature changes are avoided and maintain the high register accuracy with the printing plates allowing a faster makeready on press and minimum wastage.” Chandni Industries also use the complete range of Heidelberg Saphira plates, inks, and coatings for their Heidelberg presses for the finest print quality.
