Canon imageRUNNER-ADV C3320 @ S-Media Group

Suitable for small and medium workgroups, enterprises and reprographic shops, Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C3320 is featured with improved productivity, security and efficiency in process. S-Media Group has recently adopted this versatile MFD (multifunction device) printer, installed at its New Delhi office, for printing, photocopying and scanning purposes. The printer is capable of delivering highly vivid and vibrant quality prints with its new V2 colour technology — ideal for reprographic shops.

Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C3320 runs at the speeds of 20 ppm and is equipped with the industry’s first reminder LED, walkthrough video and 3-in-1 inner finisher and mailbox. Quite user friendly, this printer comes with a full coloured 7” WVGA touch panel allowing users greater accessibility from different angles. ‘Universal Send’ feature in the printer allows enterprises to derive greater productivity and improve user workflow. With this feature, users can scan and send out to multiple protocols at once, reducing repetitive work. ‘Mailbox Simple’ in the printer is a feature to store documents on the device itself.

Moreover, it takes full control of functioning remotely from the convenience of user’s desk without any optional accessory.

This reduces instances where users leave confidential documents behind and prevent information leaks. This printer costs Rs 276,591, including a free DADF and toner set.

Shree Arun Packaging chooses Kongsberg V20 sample-making table

A user of Esko software, Shree Arun Packaging recently installed a Kongsberg V20 cutting and creasing table with FLEXIHead for producing packaging prototypes and samples at one of its plants. Capex is always a constraint but so is the importance of having the right set of tools to quickly and efficiently compete in the carton market. “We were thinking of getting a table for quite some time but were not able to work out the costs until now. We realised that a sampling table was the missing link in our state-of-the-art chain of equipment. We looked at other options as well and after doing a thorough research on sample tables ultimately opted for the Kongsberg. Our customers also know that Kongsberg means quality,” says Hemant Bhotica, director, Shree Arun Packaging.

Mumbai-based Shree Arun Packaging is primarily a folding box manufacturer providing carton, sleeves, inserts and wrappers to consumer product companies. The company’s main customers are pharmaceutical and FMCG manufacturers, with some packaging materials also supplied to the cosmetics, food and engineering industries. With its offices centrally located in the city and its printing and converting plants in Navi Mumbai, Shree Arun is a leading packaging supplier to several global and local brands.

“The Kongsberg V20 has given us a lot of flexibility. We can now cater to our clients faster. In fact, we had a case recently, where we were able to quickly identify and rectify an error because the sample was ready in a very short time frame. Such speed was made possible only due to the Kongsberg V20,” he adds.

Talking about the performance of the Kongsberg V20 table, Bhotica says it is not a very complicated machine to handle. “Once the workforce is trained, it is easy to run…We started a corrugation unit just three months back so we don’t have a lot of sampling to do in that department, but I am sure corrugated sampling too would not be a problem,” he adds. Shree Arun Packaging is already familiar with Esko products as it installed Esko’s DeskPack way back in 2012. “We are a satisfied Esko customer,” Bhotica says.

It is designed and manufactured by MGI with Konica Minolta to help printers expand their services. This includes new amazing spot UV and 3D tactile varnishing capabilities.

MGI’s JETvarnish 3DS with iFoil inkjet spot UV coater offers users the flexibility for two powerful and highly sought-after digital finishing capabilities: traditional flat spot UV coating and new 3D digital effects. The new machine is specially designed to take inputs from the digital machines and offset as well. The machine has capabilities to digitally foil and emboss.

Utilising MGI’s patented inkjet engine technology, the JETvarnish 3DS can accommodate sheets from 8x11.8- inch up to 14.33x40-inch and substrate thicknesses from 135 to 450gsm. The 100 percent digital JETvarnish 3DS uses no plates or screens and has virtually no make-ready, ideally suited for runs from one to thousands, with full variable data capabilities. JETvarnish 3DS is an environment-friendly solution that also features solvent-free coatings and a closedcircuit system that eliminates waste.

With speeds of up to 2300 A3 sheets per hour for flat spot UV coating, the JETvarnish 3DS with iFoil is fast machine complementing both offset and digital presses and allowing commercial printers to increase their productivity while boosting their margins and differentiating themselves from their peers.

In 3D mode, the JETvarnish 3DS can apply digital effects up to 100 microns in thickness, producing visually stunning, tactile effects. Coat directly onto digital prints (dry or liquid toner) with no lamination required and the ARC camera system ensures precise registration to printed sheets. The JETvarnish 3DS variable data feature allows for full personalisation capabilities resulting in maximum marketing impact.

Speaking on the occasion Yuji Nakata, MD, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Pvt Ltd, said, “We are extremely proud to install our first ever JETvarnish 3DS with iFoil at Dina Colour Lab. With our cutting edge technology of MGI JET Varnish 3DS, we are sure that our solutions will help our esteemed customers grow their business manifold.”
