Speedmaster XL 75-6. A successful strategic shift to high-quality products and solutions with innovative technology from Heidelberg.
Thanks to Heidelberg, we can offer recognized premium quality
“We used to content ourselves with supplying what customers asked for, but now we focus on offering them real added value with high-quality products and solutions,” says Kamsri Managing Director Suresh Srinivasan. The print shop’s recent investment in a Speedmaster XL 75 six-color press has made this possible. “In addition to meeting requirements relating to quality, productivity, and added value, we are also using the value of the Heidelberg brand to improve our market positioning and grow our business. We are more confident with the Heidelberg brand on our side,” adds Mr. R. Viswanaathan, a member of the Board of Directors.
The Kamsri print shop, which specializes in labels and packaging, was founded in the Indian state of Bangalore in 1995. It had modest beginnings, starting out with a second-hand two-color offset press. The print shop’s production operations now cover an area of 55,000 square meters (over 500,000 square feet) and benefit from highly innovative Heidelberg technology.
With its consistently high production speed of 15,000 sheets per hour*, the Speedmaster XL 75 delivers end-to-end productivity. It processes numerous substrates in thicknesses ranging from 0.03 to 0.80 millimeters (0.0012 to 0.03 inches). In combination with extremely short setup times, the Speedmaster XL 75 thus offers key competitive advantages. With appropriate training from Heidelberg, the press operators were able to make full use of the technology and all its benefits from the outset. “We have succeeded in optimizing our current capacity to get us fit for the future,” sums up Srinivasan.
*The Speedmaster XL 75 is available with two print speeds – 15,000 sph and 18,000 sph.
