Established in 2011, Sonic Labels is just 7 years old, and also a first-generation printing business firm, which serves the Plastic Houseware, Pens and Cosmetic industries. Recently, the Mumbaibased print firm invested in a Gallus ECS 340 9-colour flexo press with Cold Foil/ Lamination and Chiller for printing self-adhesive, shrink sleeve, in-mould labels and unsupported films.
“The Gallus ECS 340 supports our near-term objective of supplying high-quality labels at affordable rates with turnaround-times as short as 48 hours,” Aditya Ojha states enthusiastically. Aditya heads Marketing and design at Sonic Labels, while Kapil oversees the technical and financial aspects of the business.
“The industrial grade construction of ECS 340 with automations like job data recall, electronic presetting function along with short web paths and light weight sleeve systems aid faster job set up. Features like dynamic print pressure, zero gap print, enclosed ink tray systems, chilled impression cylinder ensure very high quality print with minimum waste,” states Kapil.
Fire-powered by the tried-and-tested Gallus sleeve technology, the ECS 340 has an exceptionally short web path of just 1.1m that slices production waste significantly, resulting in cost-effective label production.
“Gallus ECS340 continues to be the best-seller in its class of equipment. Configuration flexibility is a compelling advantage for this flexo press that can be freely extended by adding two modules at a time. The modular design also helps accommodate embellishing techniques such as flexographic and screen printing, cold foil and rotary die-cutting,” adds Pravin Mahajan, (AGM – Gallus) from Heidelberg India.
“Raving reviews simply reaffirm the excellent after-sales support and service we have experienced first-hand. The Heidelberg team has been a huge pillar to rely upon. We look forward to taking our business to a new level to deliver sustained growth and profitability. The ECS340 boosts our production capacity to cater to customers’ distinct and diverse requirements. We are targeting new revenue avenues, including the cosmetic, lubricant and liquor segments, in addition to existing business” concludes Kapil Vaidya.
