After two years with the first Speedmaster, Rahul Print o Pack ordered its second, identical CS 92. Both the presses are working now around the clock for seven days a week. “In a 12-hour shift, between 25 and 30 jobs with a total of 146,000 good sheets were produced,” says Rahul Soni, the company’s Business Development Manager. “Around 75% of the orders were between 3,000 and 7,000 sheets.”
Rahul Print o Pack was founded in 2007 by Ajay Kumar Soni. The company initially concentrated on post-press; the print jobs went to external partners. Today, Heidelberg technology is used for production at all levels, from plate exposure to sheet-fed offset and post-press. Thanks to the investment in its sheetfed offset capacity, Rahul Print o Pack was able to secure not only commercial jobs but also packaging jobs in the folding carton and corrugated board segment in the fast-growing market. With the Speedmaster CS 92, the company is well-positioned for the competitive markets. Thanks to the gentle, contact-free sheet guide, Rahul Print o Pack can print substrates from 0.03mm paper to 0.6mmm cartonboard on both presses.
