Pragati Pack, a print packaging producer in India, has installed an Omet Varyflex, an inline folding carton press. The press is a flexographic platform machine with the ability to install a rotogravure, cold foil and silk screen cassette at every position of the press. According to Pragati Pack, this will allow them to print high added value jobs that would otherwise require several off-line passes to be completed all in one pass.
“We're excited about the wide range of substrates that can be printed on the press, from 12 micron all the way up to 600,” says Hemanth Paruchuri of Pagati Pack. “We're excited at what opportunities this'll bring to us in the carton side of business. There are a lot of avenues we can target.”
The sale of this equipment has been handled by New Delhi-based Weldon Celloplast Limited, exclusive agents of Omet in India and surrounding countries. According to Pawandeep Sahni, director at Weldon, “Pragati is a very serious printing company with exacting demands. It is a feather in our cap that a printer of such caliber has approved and bought the Omet Varyflex”.
Pragati Pack, based in Hyderabad, India, has been family-owned for three generations. The company received the Sappi Elephant award in 2006, 2008 and again in 2010. Lecco, Italy-based Omet designs and produces high-technology equipment and lines to print and fold tissue paper products, self-adhesive labels, folding cartons and flexible packaging.
