The open house…
Heidelberg India recently hosted an open house at Janus Packaging, Baddi, showcasing the Speedmaster CD 102 six-colour press with UV coating unit. Aptly named, “A day with the Speedmaster CD 102,” this one-day event witnessed enthusiastic participation from about 40 printers across the country. Klaus Nielsen, managing director of Heidelberg India, welcomed the guests to this spectacular show. The chosen venue – Baddi, had the additional distinction of being a major hub for packaging printing in North India.
‘A day with the Speedmaster CD 102’ kicked off with a site visit to “Temple Packaging,” a long-time Heidelberg customer. The grand tour offered the guests an opportunity to study the infrastructure of the ‘Temple Packaging’ facility. Subsequent to the visit, Heidelberg hosted a well-executed demo of the universal all-rounder Speedmaster CD 102 at ‘Janus Packaging’. Heidelberg’s expert technical team ran three jobs, the first being a five-colour poster printed on 350 GSM silver foil substrate, followed by a five-colour packaging job with drip-off effect. The highlight of the demo was, however the printing on 400 micron transparent plastic sheet with the Speedmaster CD 102 running at its full speed of 15,000 iph (impressions per hour).
On the heels of this remarkable performance, Heidelberg conducted seminar on its various products, in association with IST Germany. Peter Rego, general manager of sales at Heidelberg India, expounded on the sophisticated features of the Speedmaster CD 102 press, with a technical presentation. While, Saseendran Baskaran, product manager – press solutions, discussed in detail the merits of the Speedmaster CD 102, highlighting the ROI edge of the press over competition.
Moreover, Udo Fiebiger, regional business manager, Heidelberg Asia Pacific, gave an illuminating lecture on the latest trends in packaging printing while Holger Kuehn, IST – METZ, Germany, shared his insights on ‘UV printing – features and benefits’.
Munish Agarwal, managing director of Janus Packaging, sharing his experiences as a long-time customer of Heidelberg said, “The recent addition to our Janus family – the Speedmaster CD 102 six-colour UV press – is already exceeding expectations. Another better-than-expected Return On Investment for Janus, thanks to Heidelberg”.
As the session drew to a close, the guests were enlightened about the special finance options available to help them procure the latest technologies from Heidelberg. Key personnel from Heidelberg India also interacted with many printers on a one-to-one basis. All in all, the event served as a great platform for strengthening existing relationships, while paving the way for new ones.
