Winners make every movement sagaciously, observing all potentials in a comprehensive manner. So did Moni Patel, CEO and managing director of MASS Packsols Pvt Ltd under the astute guidance of his father Arvind Patel who is already in business of developing infrastructure and now also has the responsibility of director at MASS Packsols, with constructive support from technical consultant Anil Suthar, while establishing the new company dedicated to provide top quality packaging solutions, especially to pharmaceutical companies. Equipped with Roland 706LV HiPrint and Roland 505LV from manroland, their state-of-the-art facility located around 35 km away from Vadodara (Gujarat) at Gandhara village was recently inaugurated marking the venture of one more entrepreneurs’ family into printing industry. Here’s a brief.

The establishment of MASS Packsols Pvt Ltd with initial investment of over Rs 50 crore is a good sign for Indian print industry showing the new generation of entrepreneurs having no printing background also entering print and packaging segment of the industry, which shall innovatively energize the entire print community in a big way. Before starting the company, intensive home work was made to explore the better business opportunities for the young beginner from this Patel family of entrepreneurs. “Initially, we were to set up a pharmaceutical firm in Vadodara, and for the purpose we purchased a big piece of land to start operations in an open space, market survey had already been done along with taking preview of required machinery and raw materials. But while identifying the packaging solutions providers for our proposed products within and surrounding region of Vadodara, we faced limitations regarding quality. It was the point which changed our mind and we started to ponder over print and packaging segment ourselves and closely observing the practicalities and potentials, we finally decided to establish MASS Packsols Pvt Ltd procuring the equipments of top-of-the-line brands,” divulged Moni Patel, exclusively talking with SK Khurana, editor- Print & Publishing, who also joined the happy moments of inauguration.

Formal inauguration awaited by eldest family member of Mass Packsols.Spreading over few acres of land and equipped with cutting-edge machines Roland 706LV HiPrint and Roland 505LV from manroland and high-end post press and finishing solutions such as three die cutting machines, two units of gluer and paster, and window patching liners from Bobst, the state-of-the-art facility of MASS Packsols was formally inaugurated by Ranjan Patel’s mother in the august presence of over 500 invitees including Rafael Penuela Torres, executive vice president-sales, manroland AG; Leopold von der Gabelentz, executive delegate India, manroland AG; Anil Bhatia, managing director, manroland India Pvt Ltd; Subhasis Roy, business director SEA, India, Mideast & Africa, business unit sheetfed, Bobst SA, etc.

With the ROLAND 700 HiPrint, the universal medium-format press, manroland offers the ideal production instrument for value added printing. With the optional maximum speed of 17,000 sheets/hr, it is one of the fastest presses in the market, uncompromisingly designed to produce the high printing quality. The modern principle of double-diameter impression cylinders and transferters provides gentle sheet travel for substrates up to one millimeter thick. The ROLAND InlineObserver enables the printer to monitor sheet travel and thus makes sure the settings are always optimal. Even at high press speeds, the AirGlide delivery produces perfectly even stacks due to the particularly flat sheet ascent and long sheet stabilization path. A host of QuickChange options reduce make-ready times by as much as 40 percent compared to standard presses. With extremely precise chambered doctor blade system, the coating layer is metered exactly in the highest quality even at high production speeds.

Inauguration in progress by Rafael Penuela Torres, EVP-sales, manroland AG.While with speeds up to 18,000 sheets per hour, the ROLAND 500 ensures exceptional performance delivering outstanding printing quality. The center points of the double-diameter impression cylinders and transferters are arranged virtually in a line to provide the world’s flattest sheet travel from the feed-board right through to the delivery pile. In addition to automatic substrate thickness adjustment, there are three different height settings for the transferter gripper bars. As a result, sheets from 0.04 to 1 millimeter are always transported through the press gently and contact-free over the air tracks. The massive integrally-cast base frame guarantees precise register. This combined with the stable mountings ensures smooth running for the lifetime of the press, and the double-diameter impression cylinders and transferters reduce the number of sheet transfers and thus the risk of register problems. Team manroland at the inauguration ceremony.The fast-reacting 16-roller inking unit with large storage capacity provides an outstanding printing quality – with consistent inking over the entire run. And the Deltamatic damping unit eliminates the need for mechanical hickey pickers which avoids any loss of quality and reduces the number of waste sheets. The unique positioning of the chambered doctor blade system at the delivery side of the coating module prevents splashes and foaming from impairing printing quality.

“Auspicious beginning of MASS Packsols shows the strength of Indian print and packaging market. We are pleased having one more valued customer in India in form of MASS Packsols installing our two high-end machines in one go which would ensure remarkable success for them,” commented Rafael Penuela Torres.
