Being a fully integrated printing facility, the company is now equipped with a CtP unit, a brand new Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 74 four-colour press, a used Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 five colour press, a digital printer, punching, lamination and foil stamping machines, three POLAR cutting machines, a fully automatic folder-gluer, etc.

Established by Mansoor H Reshamvala in the year 1967 and now operating from a facility spread over a 20,000 sq ft area in Navi Mumbai, Lucid Prints handles both packaging and commercial printing. The company also exports cartons to pharmaceutical companies in Yemen and some African countries. Lucid Prints’ experience with both Heidelberg presses has been very satisfactory. Installed in the year 2007, the Speedmaster SM 74 four-colour press (with CPTRONIC) turned out to be very useful even for short run jobs because of quick turnaround time. The press is capable of operating at a maximum speed of 15,000 sheets per hour and can handle stock thicknesses ranging from 0.03-0.6 mm (0.0012-0.024 inch), with maximum print format measuring 510 x 740 mm (20.08 x 29.13 inches). The five-colour press Speedmaster XL 75 was installed in mid 2011 and has been meeting all their expectations. Buying a remarketed equipment from Heidelberg itself has been a good decision that they are happy about.

“Owning a Heidelberg press was a dream, what Mercedes is to cars, Heidelberg is to printing,” commented Firoze M Reshamvala, son of Mansoor H Reshamvala, who joined the business as a partner in 1997. Both he and his father have strong faith in Heidelberg and according to them there may be many who manufacture and sell printing equipment but the customer support, that Heidelberg provides, is absolutely unmatched, moreover Heidelberg is easily recognized by customers and that is definitely an edge over other print equipment brands. “We are impressed by the manner in which Heidelberg imparts knowledge and training to its customers. we are happy with investing in Heidelberg equipments,” added Firoze, having a vision to make Lucid Prints a brand of global standards.
