Manipal International Press from Africa invests in Lombardi SYNCHROLINE 530 narrow web UV flexo press from Vinsak. It is a full servo multicolour press and can print on an extensive range of materials.

Talking about their investment, Pritam Choudhary, managing director at Manipal Africa, said, “We are moving to a new city and have invested in 10000 sq. meters. Printing plant as our production capacity has increased by 50%. As of now, we are having three Flexo and two gravure machines producing 550000 linear meters a day. The new Lombardi Synchroline mid-web Flexo press will be a perfect fit with our existing infrastructure and is meant to print short-run jobs of 10,000 linear meters and less. We will be installing it in our Nairobi plant.”

He further added, “This will be the first Synchroline in eastern Africa and after this, we will bring in a range of label finishing machines to accommodate our growing production requirements. Synchroline provides a lot of embellishments like foiling, lamination, re-lam, turn-bar, de-lam etc.”
