SK Offset installs the Gallus EM340 S label press
Print, packaging and branding specialist SK Offset has installed its first narrow web flexo label press – a used Gallus EM 340 S and a flexo printing machine for ComcoCadet short-term work. In addition to printing units with UV curing, the press contains in-line foil stamping, coating, lamination, cold foil, hot foil, die-cutting and screen printing capabilities. Set up in the first half of June 2022, SK Offset has built a complete plant and modern press room with sustainability, hygiene and maintainability in mind.
The concept of the company is to give the best local and international brands in the region local capacity for very high quality labels. There is a growing demand for reliable, high-quality suppliers with expertise working with big brands as next-generation industry sectors grow in Meerut.
The specific requirements of brand owners can be met by the Gallus label press and SK Offset’s extensive off-line auxiliary equipment, including the supply of barcodes and QR codes. Visible segments in the area include food, beverages, alcobev, as well as candles, cosmetics and body care products.
Ayush Agarwal, Director of SK Offset, says, “In addition to innovation, brand equity and versatile technology, we choose to invest in established technologies. The Gallus label press stood out as the best for us after reviewing all the presses and their configurations. The selection was influenced by the ability of the press to adapt to a variety of processes and the ease with which Heidelberg India could maintain it.
“We can print CMYK and all Pantone colors and metallic inks like silver and gold with coatings for gloss and matte finishes and textures. Our labels can cope with any environment according to the specifications given by the customer. We have different types of substrates for various applications and environments,” concludes Agarwal.
