Hyderabad-based flexible-packaging printer / converter Vijayneha Polymers has been challenging its own production records and has now achieved record throughput  14 million meters in a month with its Heliostar II S gravure press from Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H).

According to the company, the Heliostar printing press has not only upheld Vijayneha’s standing as a provider of high-quality printing and packaging solutions but also has helped the company move a step further in their growth story.

Vijayneha Polymers has been consistently producing over 2,500 tonnes/month of laminates within a few years of operation. Driven by ambition and powered by hard work, today, Vijayneha is a leading manufacturer, exporter and wholesale supplier of packaging material in India. The company serves many leading multinational companies. In the recent part, it has expanded its production capacity and will now be producing 3,500 tonnes/month of a variety of packaging material/ laminate/ sustainability packaging materials.

The machine’s ability to deliver results even at high speeds, the state-of-the-art automation and integration capabilities along with precise quality monitoring systems served as a backbone to achieve this target. All of this, in combination, facilitates in printing high deckle size (1,300 mm) giving excellent print registration results in addition to high-speed operation at 500 mpm.

Shiv Kumar Gupta of Vijayneha Polymers says, “The press is the workhorse of the plant. It has been performing consistently since the first day of installation in 2019. The Heliostar II is vouched for its lowest production cost in the industry when it comes to printing and the same has been proven in Vijayneha.”
