TCPL Packaging is one of the largest packaging printers in the country. In Goa alone, 280 of the company’s 1,250 employees print mainly food and pharmaceuticals packaging at a plant with production floor space totally 28,000 square meters. With this latest Rapida 106, Koenig & Bauer press technology is now in use at all four TCPL locations. Apart from Goa, TCPL also has plants in Silvassa, Haridwar and Guwahti.
Three more Rapida 106 presses are to be installed at TCPL this year. The first will be arriving at the Haridwar plant in May, while the second is set for installation in Goa in the summer. The installation of the third press in Silvassa is scheduled for the end of the year. One of the three is also the longest Rapida in India to date, with a total of 12 printing and finishing units. The configuration comprises seven colors followed by a coater, two dryer towers, a further printing unit and coater, and an extended delivery. Once all these presses are in place, TCPL will possess 10 high-end Rapida presses with a total of 85 printing units.
“Ever since we installed our first Koenig & Bauer press in 2011, we have gone back to them whenever we bought another one, due to constant innovation and improvements being carried out by them,” said Saket Kanoria, managing director of TCPL Packaging. “We have experienced higher productivity levels as a result."
