Pressline India continues to ride high seas

Presses from Pressline for Indian Express, Dainik Bhaskar, and Government of Gujarat Press, respectively from top.
Against overwhelming response from the Printpack India 2011, Pressline India continues to ride high seas. After the successful first installation of the PRIMA model at Indian Express, Coimbatore for production of twenty pages broadsheet newspaper including six pages in colour, the second PRIMA pressline order was repeated by this prestigious client for the same centre.

The Prima model of Pressline has established its dependability among newspapers and book printers on account of its consistent performance records with least wastage through its remote control consoles and best printing results. The specialty of PRIMA towers supplied to Indian Express is production of 4/1 colour on each web. These towers can be upgraded for 4/4 colour production as and when need arises. This was done by Pressline for the first time in India. Till date in the country, all the single width machines printing newspapers were using old technology where tricolour unit known as 3C along with stack unit was being used to produce 4/1 colour. This old technology had lot of operational hassles as its dampening system was below the units and operator had to lie down on the floor (below 3C) to take care of dampening. This was the reason that this design was internationally discarded almost two decades back.

In case of Arihant Print Solution instead of offering an auto reel changer, Pressline installed a double reel stand which has the feature of semi automatic web pasting and splicing device to enhance productivity and wastage control. This kind of double roll stand with splicing & pasting device is first of its kind for web offset printing Industry.
Apart from establishing their impression in the newspaper industry, Pressline has gained momentum in the book printing section as well. The evidence is the repeat orders from publishers such as Nageen Prakashan, Meerut and Prathibha Printers, Patna. After installation of two book printing PRIMA webs with 2/2 and 4/4 towers and splicer- 50, Nageen Prakashan, Meerut has placed third order with Pressline for 4/4 tower with auto splicer.

Witnessing the splicing and the registration accuracies of the PRIMA model another leading book publisher Arihant Print Solution, Meerut reposed its faith in Pressline and ordered the same configuration. In case of Arihant Print Solution instead of offering an auto reel changer, Pressline installed a double reel stand which has the feature of semi automatic web pasting and splicing device to enhance productivity and wastage control. With this newly developed device the rolls can be changed at the crawling speed. This development has been carried out keeping in mind the huge wastage paper/newsprint while changing the rolls manually. The other major factor to develop this model of unwinding device was the affordability. Most of the Indian web offset printers cant afford auto reel changer because of its high cost. This kind of double roll stand with splicing and pasting device is first of its kind for web offset printing industry.

The newly developed Horizontal Web Five (5) machines consisting of two mono units and a quarter folder, sheeter with online digital numbering unit, have been supplied to Government of Gujarat Presses in Baroda, Gandhinagar, Bhavnagar, Rajkot and Ahmedabad.

Reconfirming presence in the South

Apart from the book printers mentioned above in the northern India, Pressline reconfirmed its presence in the South by installing PL-30 consisting of RS + 4Hi + F + F + 60 HP drive at Geethanjali Web Offsets, Calicut. Another newspaper installation in the South is with a new entrant SK India Entertainment (P) Limited, Bangalore, consisting of PL-30 U + U + F + 3C/ST + RS + 75 HP Drive.

Turning to the West

After the North and the South, it was the turn of the West where Pressline supplied their PRIMA series consisting of three 4Hi towers with a folder and upper former to one of the leading Marathi daily, Dainik Divya Marathi (Dainik Bhaskar Group) at Nasik.
