Pragatipack gets a Omet Varyflex

After an MPS, Pragatipack - the packaging converting unit of Pragati Press based in Hyderabad has now gone in for an inline Omet Varyflex press for folding carton production. The Omet Varyflex installed at Pragati is a UV flexo machine that allows the addition of rotogravure, cold foil and silkscreen units in every position of the press. The Varyflex’s configuration allows printing, reverse printing, foiling, overprinting, metalizing, relief printing and converting to be performed in one pass.

By investing in OMET's machine, Pragatipack has become an all-round partner for printers of flexible packaging, and much more. Pragatipack, led by Narendra Paruchuri, is a family owned company that counts three generations within its ranks. The company won the Sappi Elephant award in 2006, 2008 and 2010.

Pragati’s Hemanth Paruchuri said: "We are excited about the wide range of substrates that can be printed on the press, from 12 micron all the way up to 600 and are excited at the opportunities this will bring to the carton side of business. The machine is very versatile and there are a lot of avenues we can target."

According to Pawandeep Sahni, director Weldon Celloplast, Omet’s agent in India, "Pragati is a very serious printing company with exacting demands. It is a feather in our cap that a printer of such caliber has approved and bought the Omet Varyflex."
