In a bid to open up new markets, Bangalore based Sai Enterprises overhauled its flexographic plate production set-up with installation of ESKO Cyrel Digital Imager.
Started in 1995, Sai Enterprises supplies flexo plates to the label printers of southern India. With an aim to deliver the plates within 24 hours, they have setup their manufacturing facilities in three prime locations i.e. Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad.
In an recent event, we spoke to Mr.N.Gopalakrishnan, proprietor of Sai Enterprises. He said. “Recently, we have added second CDI for ESKO in our production plant. In addition, we have also bought some key software’s. Now our production process is completely digitalised. The new system has cut plate production time dramatically and the process is a lot cleaner than before.”
In PlastIndia 2018, the company in association with Technova had made special plates for high speed machines.
He added, the company is catering flat top plates to wide web and narrow web printers . The printers today ask for a plate that give excellent printing result. However, there are very few printers in the region that are aware of flat-top-dot technology hence we try to educate them and show them the comparison of flat-top-dot plates with normal plates. Flat-top-dot is a future technology.”
Gopalakrishnan believes that the kit will open up new markets such as those in the edible oil, Pharma and food processing.
