Heidelberg enables Kamsri to deliver high quality offerings

After having followed the cycle of reading the market, offering the required and consistently achieving excellence, the changing times didn’t go unnoticed by Suresh Srinivasan, managing director of Kamsri. As he puts it, “We needed to move on from our approach of delivering just what is required to the approach of building our capacity and adding real value to the client, which comes through quality output and solutions that matter to our clients the most.” That explains the recent addition at Bangalore-based Kamsri Printing and Packaging Pvt Ltd (Formerly Kamsri Flex Forms Pvt Ltd) - the Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 six-colour press. Operating from a 55000 square feet printing facility, Kamsri moves on with a single goal – to provide quality and value to its customers. “Our vision is to optimize our current capacity,” echoes the entire Kamsri team. With an expert team, a streamlined and tested process, an ISO 9001:2008 certification and their recent pride possession of Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75, Kamsri has already taken a leap of faith and is strongly headed towards its vision. The company also has a stable ERP set up and is equipped to move into the space that is advancing into digitalization and automation. Clear in vision and action, Kamsri assures a magic touch to whatever it lays its hands on – a touch of quality.

A vast experience of almost two decades gave us the confidence to customize and deal with each client as a unique one,” shares R Viswanaathan, executive director, Kamsri.

“Besides meeting quality, productivity and value-add requirements, there is a very high brand value that Heidelberg scores, and it helps us to position ourselves better and escalate our business. We walk taller wearing a Heidelberg Badge,” adds Suresh.

The highly innovative technology of Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 comes equipped with production speed of up to 15000 sheets per hour and is equipped with touch screen operating panels (at feeder and delivery). The Prinect Press Center and Intellistart process-oriented operator guidance system help to achieve uninterrupted production even across a wide variety of substrates ranging from 0.03 mm to 0.80 mm (0.0012 inch t0 0.0315 inch). The Speedmaster XL 75 has programme controlled inking roller and blanket wash-up device which reduce the make-ready times. Shortest make-ready times as well as consistent high production speeds are a given with Speedmaster which in turn ensure the decisive competitive edges in technology and productivity. Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 at Kamsri has become one of the main attractions, for both, internal and external stakeholders. Also, Kamsri’s press operators know how to use the press most efficiently. Their operators have also been a part of Heidelberg’s “Operator Development Programme” - a fully sponsored one-month training programme by Heidelberg India, which aims at enhancing the skills of press operators so that they can utilize the technology to its best and reap all the benefits.

As it now stands, Kamsri has an in-house prepress set-up with a CtP device. In the press division, they also have a five-colour press (28x40 format) with a guillotine, other than the six-colour Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75. Their postpress facility comes with automatic die-cutters, folder-gluers along with lamination and slant bed punching machines.

With a soothing highbrow sense of humor and a never ending urge to learn and grasp, Suresh dreams of building a promising yet an understated enterprise, alongside his ‘home and financial director’ - Lakshmi, his ‘cohort’ - Viswanaathan and his ‘technology partner’- Heidelberg.
