VGA Digital Printers, Pune installs Kongsberg X24 Edge that is field upgradable.
Arrow Digital has installed Kongsberg X24 Edge at VGA Digital Printers, Pune. VGA, a renowned name in the Printing industry and an old customer of Arrow Digital, has added the Kongsberg to increase their production capacity.
To address this event, Mr. Sam Patel, CEO & MD at Arrow Digital, adds, “It has been years working with Mr. Mandke, and it has always been a pleasure to join hands with him. This new addition will help VGA address the print-to-finish jobs and remove the need for manual or outsourcing interventions.”
The X24 Edge can handle any type of application for signage, display and packaging with high production speeds and exceptional cutting quality. The best part is that it is field upgradable. So, one can eventually upgrade as one increases the job capacity with seamless finishing options of Kongsberg. This finisher is capable of cutting a variety of Substrates and is very simple to use. Its various milling options match production requirements, plus accurate print-to-cut registration.
Mr. Mandke, Director at VGA Digital Printers, said, “We have high-speed printers, and finishing has always been the hurdle. Depending on outsourcing reduces the throughput, no control on QC, and was a logistics nightmare; with the tightening of the skilled labour, we could not get the final printed products out the door; now turnaround time is faster, and we can deliver the final finished product with a rapid turnaround.”
“With Kongsberg, we are confident in increasing our capabilities, which lends itself to finding more clients and increasing our production capacity. There are several finishing tables in the market, but we needed a sturdy and rugged table which can last for years. The Kongsberg’s rock-solid build differentiates it from other technologies in the market,” he continues.
Mr. Sam adds that The Kongsberg provides a complete spectrum of tooling to finish the entire range of media from soft to rigid substrates. The rack-and-pinion drive system offers speed, sturdiness and strength, which enables customers to finish thick or thin materials with ease. The i-cut Production console offers users powerful functionality for signage, display, and packaging production.
Additionally, AIPC ensures highly efficient production and extremely accurate print-to-cut registration. Also, its state-of-the-art user interface offers improved usability with its personalized job management operator. The fast tool loading, auto-recognition and calibration features are ideal for short-run jobs. The conveyor gives users the confidence to achieve flexible substrates with ease.
Mr. Mandke added, “Post COVID, we have understood that dependency on outsourcing or manual intervention can cause a severe issue to your business. When you have reputed clientele, you must ensure you serve them the best possible way, to stay ahead in this race. Kongsberg has given us that confidence to achieve deadlines and even to reach out to more and more corporate brands with innovative designs. We’ve now got all the tools in place that we wanted. Kongsberg is backed by Arrow’s Service Support, with their state-of-the-art demo/training and R&D facilities in India, makes us extremely confident in the Product and its capabilities.
