Prakash Offset Printers, Mangalore, installs fourth Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 CtP
Mangalore’s renowned printing company, Prakash Offset Printers has invested in a brand-new Heidelberg Supertaster A106 CtP. Prakash Offset Printers started way back in 1983 to cater to in-house print requirements for pre-press, press, and post-press setup. Today, Prakash Offset Printers has an immense reputation and standards in the print industry.
In December 2022, the Suprasetter A 106 CtP was installed at their Baikampady unit at Mangalore. The relationship between Heidelberg and Prakash Offset Printers is more than 3 decades, like their experience in the industry. This is the fourth Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 CtP at Prakash Offset Printers.
Prakash Offset Printers has an array of Heidelberg presses from Heidelberg M offset to Speed master XL 75 and Speedmaster SM 102. The company has the credit of installing India’s first Heidelberg SX 52 Anicolor press in 2014; and a complete range of Polar cutting machines and Stahlfolder folding machines at their shopfloor with three Suprasetter equipment.
Prakash Offset Printers has two units at Mangalore, the pre-press unit located at the heart of the city spread across 5,000 sq. ft area and the production unit located at Baikampady Industrial estate, which has a 35,000 sq/ft operational area, catering to commercial, book publishing, packaging printing and folding carton conversion.
P R Nayak, Director at Prakash Offset Printers, said, “We were certain about our investment right from day one. The Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 is a rewarding equipment. We have been using Heidelberg CtP’s for over a decade, and their performance and quality are exemplary.”
“The Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 is known for its proven record-breaking performances. We are very sure about the investment as it will enable us to grow and give amazing services to our valuable customers,” added Nayak.
Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 supports the firm for its upgradations and growth. It has boosted productivity and has given Prakash Offset Printers a more advanced pressroom. The modular design of the Suprasetter A 106 provides maximum flexibility for the medium-size print format. The patented laser system by Heidelberg provides excellent imaging quality. The production reliability ensured through the Intelligent Diode System (IDS), it means that if a diode fails, the operation can continue. The Suprasetter offers a consistently high depth of focus to compensate for unevenness in the plates.
The temperature of all the components relevant to imaging is maintained at a constant level. The imaging of the printing plates always takes place under the same conditions – a performance feature particularly beneficial for plate remake. Any deviations caused by ambient temperature change are avoided as this maintains the high register accuracy with the printing plates allowing a faster makeready on press and a minimum of waste.
The Suprasetter A 106 CtP has a dimension of 84.65 widths × 58.82 depth × 60.47 height (inches), with a minimum plate format of 370 height x 323 widths (mm); and a maximum plate format of 930 height × 1,060 widths (mm) and has a resolution of 2,400 dpi.
Prakash Offset Printers caters to the packaging market, and has clients like Cycle brand – Agarbattis, Funskool, Modern Kitchens, Corporation Bank,and more. Heidelberg is delighted to be part of this eminent journey of Prakash Offset Printers and will continue this journey. Nayak concluded, “We believe in Heidelberg products, and we are sure that the Suprasetter A 106 CtP will help us reach new heights.”
