India’s first Speedmaster SX 74
“Extremely short makeready times, minimal paper waste, very fast job changes, and top print quality – it’s a whole new class!” Pradeep Herur and his brother Channabasappa, owners of Indian print shop Onyx Printers, were highly impressed from the outset with the new Speedmaster SX series unveiled at drupa 2012. They wouldn’t rest until they had one in their own pressroom – India’s first Speedmaster SX 74!
Onyx Printers in Bangalore is involved in both packaging and commercial printing, so an all-rounder like the Speedmaster SX 74 is the ideal solution, combining the benefits of the Speedmaster XL with the SM platform. The company started out as an advertising agency but gradually also began taking care of its customers’ printing requirements. Now, with a workforce of 50, Onyx Printers has become a full-service provider that offers customers design, prepress, press, and postpress services all the way through to the finished product. Delivering production speeds of up to 15,000 sheets per hour and excellent substrate flexibility, the Speedmaster SX 74 also benefits from state-of-the-art technology.
“The Speedmaster SX 74 has made Onyx Printers even more flexible, a key requirement for success with discerning customers. We knew from the start that we had made absolutely the right decision in purchasing the press. Our customers are impressed with our new investment and this is reflected not least in lots more orders,” says a delighted Channabasappa. His brother Pradeep adds: “Every print shop dreams of one day owning a Speedmaster press and this dream has come true for Onyx Printers with the Speedmaster SX 74.”
