Varna Printers is popular among printers in and around Kerala
and is situated in the heart of the Cochin city. They undoubtedly
are one among the high quality printers in Southern India. Varna
caters to various commercial printing requirements which include
magazines, brochures, leaflets, posters, stickers, handouts,
note-books, danglers and like.
Established in the year 1998, Varna started with a
single-color press. In the year 2006, they expanded their horizon
with a new multicolor press - Heidelberg Printmaster 74 four-colour
press. In order to improve their productivity, Varna had been
contemplating to have their prepress in-house. Within a short span,
they installed a Heidelberg - Suprasetter S-74 thermal CtP with
workflow software, raptor online processor and prepress interface
The driving force behind Varna is its proprietor, Mr. K. J.
Thomas, a highly knowledgeable person with a foresight for
investing in not only the latest but right technology.
On the recent installation of Heidelberg Suprasetter CtP, Mr.
Thomas says, "With the addition of the Heidelberg Suprasetter
74 Thermal CtP along with prepress interface, we have successfully
integrated our prepress with the press (Printmaster 74), hence
increasing the overall productivity by further reducing turnaround
Mr. Thomas explains, "I am extremely pleased with the
decision of opting for a Heidelberg CtP. Suprasetter performs fully
to my satisfaction. Our operators are being trained by Heidelberg
professionals at regular intervals. They help us understand the
intricate concepts of their latest technology and operators are
able to quickly implement the same in the day to day press room
activity and have mastered quality printing."
When asked about the technical capabilities of Heidelberg
Suprasetter CtP, he says:
"One of the unique features of Suprasetter is the
'temperature compensation' wherein temperature of all components
relevant to imaging remains constant, so that the imaging of the
printing plates always takes place under the same conditions. This
is particularly beneficial during plate remake. We have the latest
version wherein up-gradation is possible. With this, the speed of
the output can be increased when the situation demands. Plus, the
laser system in the Suprasetter offers not only outstanding quality
but also a high level of reliability through IDS (Intelligent Diode
system). Even in an event of one or several laser diode failures,
production is not interrupted. Also, Heidelberg Suprasetter thermal
CtP can process chemical-free or process-less thermal printing
plates which have less impact on the environment."
Mr. Thomas concludes by saying, "When we invest huge
amount of money in press, we should develop the infrastructure in
other supporting areas of production chain as well, which are;
prepress and finishing. This ensures quality at all levels and
every production unit should be self reliant to satisfy print
buyers. We have been following this and I feel this is what makes
our business very successful."
