Mangalore’s Prakash Offset Printers installs fourth Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 CtP equipment.
Mangalore-based renowned printing firm Prakash Offset Printers has invested in a brand-new Heidelberg Supertaster A 106 CtP. Prakash Offset Printers established in 1983 to cater to their in-house print requirements with complete pre-press, press, and post-press setup. Today, Prakash Offset Printers has an immense reputation and standards in the print industry.
The Suprasetter A 106 CtP was installed at Baikampady unit at Mangalore in December 2022. The relationship between Heidelberg and Prakash Offset Printers is of more than three decades, like their experience in the industry. It’s the fourth Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 CtP at Prakash Offset Printers.
Prakash Offset Printers has an array of Heidelberg presses from Heidelberg M offset to Speedmaster XL 75 and Speedmaster SM 102. Also, Prakash Offset Printers had installed India’s first Heidelberg SX 52 Anicolor press in 2014; and a complete range of Polar cutting and Stahlfolder folding machines at their shopfloor with three Suprasetter equipment.
Prakash Offset Printers has two units at Mangalore, the pre-press unit located at the heart of the city with a spread across 5,000 sq/ft area, and the production unit located at Baikampady industrial estate has a 35,000 sq/ft operational area, catering to commercial, book publishing, packaging, printing, and folding carton conversion.
P R Nayak, Director at Prakash Offset Printers, said, “We were certain about our investment right from day one. The Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 is a rewarding equipment. We have been using Heidelberg Suprasetter CtP equipment for over a decade, and the performance and quality are exemplary.”
“The Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 is known for its proven record-breaking performances. We are very sure about the investment as it will enable us to grow and give amazing services to our valuable customers,” added Nayak.
Heidelberg Suprasetter A 106 supports the firm for its upgradations and growth. It has boosted productivity and has given Prakash Offset Printers a more advanced pressroom. The modular design of the Suprasetter A 106 provides maximum flexibility for the medium-size print format. The patented laser system by Heidelberg offers an excellent imaging quality. The production reliability is ensured through the Intelligent Diode System (IDS), it means that if a diode fails, the operation can continue.
The Suprasetter offers a consistently high depth of focus to compensate for unevenness in the plates.The temperature of all the components relevant to imaging is maintained at constant levels. The imaging of the printing plates always take place under the same condition – a performance feature particularly beneficial for plate remake. Any deviations caused by ambient temperature change are avoided, as this maintains the high register accuracy with the printing plates allowing a faster makeready on press and a minimum of waste.
The Suprasetter A 106 CtP has a dimension of 84.65 widths × 58.82 depth × 60.47 height (inches), with a minimum plate format of 370 height x 323 widths (mm); and a maximum plate format of 930 height × 1,060 widths (mm) and has a resolution of 2,400 dpi.
Heidelberg India is delighted to be part of this eminent journey of Prakash Offset Printers and will continue. “We believe in Heidelberg and are sure about the Suprasetter A 106 CtP as it will help us to reach new heights,” concluded Nayak.
