Grafica News - January 2011
Largest ceramic decal producer Schablona India Ltd, Bahadurgarh
Your company’s connection with Grafica:
Long ago we had bought a small screen printing machine from Grafica. Later we had bought a fully automatic emulsion coating machine for our Bahadurgarh plant which has been delivering 100% quality and. Based on that experience we bought one more fully automatic emulsion coating machine from Grafica for our Kadi plant in Mehsana district, Gujarat. Again, this equipment is also performing as per our production needs. And that business relationship was developed into goodwill with Mr. Bhargav Mistry, MD of Grafica and we bought a fully automatic Cylinder Press along with inline Wicket Dryer.
Goodwill aside, but still why did you choose Grafica’s Cylinder Press?
Our management was looking for a manufacturer who is technically sound to provide prompt after sales service. Also, we were very much particular in terms of easy availability of spare parts. After evaluating a couple of other suppliers we found Grafica was the right choice.
Are you satisfied with Grafica’s machine and their service?
Yes we are. Like in any other machine some fine tuning was required initially and it was done successfully by Grafica’s technical team. They have very committed and dedicated technical team who know screen printing techniques very well. Their after sales service and technical back up is par excellence
Recently your team had attended 3-day corporate training at DMI. What was their experience?
They were very much satisfied from the kind of training they received. Our team gained lot of practical insights into various process parameters. DMI’s contribution is remarkable.
