Accomplishes seven million impressions in just over a month of installation and runs seventeen sets of four-color jobs in a single shift.
Mumbai based Jayant Printery which started in 1968 with a treadle press, in an area of 220 sq.ft. has come a long way in 40 years and is now operating in a 45,000 sq.ft. plant with 360 degree print solutions, from pre-press to post-press. The company recently expanded its production facility with a brand new Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102 four-colour offset press.
In 1989, Jayant Printery installed its first Heidelberg SORM press, followed by a Heidelberg SM 72–M press. Having experienced Heidelberg technology, they installed a Speedmaster SM 102 four-colour press and Heidelberg Printmaster PM 74 press as well. Today, Jayant Printery is a house of Heidelberg presses, which accommodates three four-colour presses, two five-colour presses, one two-colour and a single-colour press.
On his successful forty three years in the print industry, Chhotubhai Shah, Managing Director of Jayant Printery, says, “Quality and on-time delivery is the mantra behind our success. That is why all our customers keep coming back to us. We constantly upgrade to the latest technology like Heidelbergs’ which results in optimum production and high returns.”
The latest acquisition of Jayant Printery is the brand new Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102 four-colour press. The press prints 15,000 sheets per hour and handles a variety of printing stocks – from light-weight paper (0.03 mm) to thick card-board (1.00 mm). In the 70 x 100 cm format, the Speedmaster CD 102 straight printing press is compact for industrial printing, packaging and commercial printing. It is also equipped with ‘Prinect press center’ and has added features like preset-plus feeder, preset delivery, program-controlled inking unit wash-up device. Jayant Printery has two production units: One in Thakurdwar in Mumbai and the other one in Palghar near Mumbai. Both units have prepress, press and postpress divisions in-house and the Speedmaster CD 102 is installed in their Palghar plant. Their prepress division has a CtP and the postpress unit consists of cutting machines, folders, perfect-binders and die-cutting equipments. “We have been using Heidelberg presses for a long time and we are 100% satisfied with Heidelberg’s performance and quality. If I have to rate the machine’s production ability, I will give seven stars to Heidelberg”, expresses Chhotubhai.
The print-shop handles an array of commercial jobs, books, magazines, diaries, journals, as well as packaging jobs, and employs about 100 people.
Chhotubhai is competently supported by his son Shashank who takes care of marketing and business development. Shashank adds, “When we thought of purchasing a new press for Palghar plant, we were clear that is should be a Heidelberg. The Speedmaster CD 102 fulfills our requirement perfectly; make-ready times are shorter and job changeover is so simple with this machine. Within one and half months of its installation, the CD 102 has crossed seven million impressions already.”
At Jayant Printery, normally in an eight hour shift, four jobs are expected to be produced. Now with the Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102, they are able to run seventeen sets of four-color jobs in a single day shift. What’s more, with thorough training from Heidelberg service team, the operators run the press at a full speed of 15,000 sheets per hour every day.
