Maya Printers invests in four colour Speedmaster CD 102
With its three-pronged strategy of enhancing productivity, reducing wastage and improving quality, Kochi-based Maya Printers recently invested in a brand new Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102. The Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102 is a chart-buster in the 70 × 100 format series – a top-preference among packaging printers in India. Referred as the all-rounder, it can handle a range of substrates from 0.03-mm paper to 1-mm thick cardboard (0.0012 in – 0.039 in) with a production speed of 15,000 sph.
“It is a perfect fit to our requirements and an excellent ROI, that too in a short period. We constantly strive to reach new heights in quality excellence. Heidelberg is the name that we can easily and quickly associate with performance and productivity. Energy efficiency of the press is a big plus. It slices energy consumption costs significantly.” beams Prasad, the man who runs the show with his brother Ajay Kumar. He further adds, “Heidelberg is the ultimate preferred destination for the latest technologies, products and services. We embarked on our journey to success, when we bought our first brand new Speedmaster PM 74 four-colour press from Heidelberg.”
A family-run enterprise, Maya Printers caters to both the commercial and packaging printing segments. However, about 80 percent of the business revolves around commercial printing. The firm runs a tight ship on costs, while keeping productivity high. This helps Maya tide over the challenges of aggressive competition in the industry. Maya houses a full-fledged post-press unit, including a POLAR 92X programmable cutter, and stahl folding equipment. The prepress division has a Suprasetter A75 CtP with Prinect workflow software from Heidelberg.
“Speedmaster CD 102’s print format, production speed and alcolor dampening features give us a strong edge over competition. Moreover, the press can be upgraded to include the UV Printing option. More importantly, Heidelberg’s service support is beyond exemplary. We are second-time buyers, and will keep coming back for more,” adds Prasad. Looking ahead, Prasad envisages new horizons for his printing business in Kerala, in tandem with the upcoming Smart city and India’s largest container terminal. He expects his annual turnover to exceed Rs 10 crore, reflecting a targeted Year-On-Year growth of 15 to 20 percent.
