Autoprint envisages efficiency enhancement programme for printers
Taking another initiative to help print industry, Coimbatore-based Autoprint Machinery Manufacturers Pvt Ltd, along with Manugraph and TechNova (as training partners), has envisaged an efficiency enhancement programme for printers. Under this unique training programme proposed to be implemented through various printers’ associations across the country, the company would make an arrangement to train operators at the concerned printer’s own facility. In order to make the programme a great success and obtain industry view points, Autoprint recently organised a get together with executive committee members of Delhi Printers’ Association (DPA).
On the occasion, giving overview of the proposed programme, CN Ashok, managing director and CEO, Autoprint, informed, “With collective initiative by at least ten printers, we will appoint a well qualified trainer to run efficiency enhancement programme, who will one by one go to each printer’s site for twice half-day training in a week. He will not only train the staff to increase their efficiency, but also look after the betterment in pressroom chemistry, maintenance, costing, and waste management, which ultimately increase the productivity and profitability of the printers. For this training programme, every printer will have to contribute only Rs 10,000 per month paying advance for one year. With willingness to cooperate and implement trainer’s recommendations, printers would significantly witness improvement in their entire operation.”

Having manufacturing facilities in Coimbatore and Himachal Pradesh, we produce 2.6 machines per day. With reach in the markets of 50 countries, we have so far installed around 8,700 machines.”
Welcoming the initiative by Auotoprint, Arun Berry, president of DPA appreciated the quality of their machines, mentioning their first set of machines installed in New Delhi since 2000 and are working very efficiently even today.
