Rave Scans India adds Bobst folder-gluer to boost production
Delhi-based printing and packaging company Rave Scans has added a Bobst Ambition 106 A2 folder-gluer to increase production capacity.
Part of VK Global Group, Rave Scans is a fast-growing commercial offset printer, which was founded in 1993. Over the past two decades, it has acquired several offset litho presses and bookbinding equipment. In 2014, the company invested a full-sheet X-Y scanner for quality control, along with new converting equipment from Bobst and other suppliers. At the same time, it entered into the rigid box segment.
The versatile and productive Bobst Ambition 106 A2 folder-gluer machine can handle most box styles, including four and six corner folding cartons, and light corrugated board.
“Rave Scans has always been associated with the best technology within each of its segments and our various BOBST installations have maintained that tradition,” said Namit Jain, director, VK Global Group. He added that the company already has a Bobst Novacut 106 E die-cutter with stripping and a Bobst Visionfold 80 A2 folder-gluer.
“In our short printing experience, we have gained insight into the premium quality of the BOBST machines. With our expanding business, the expectation of timely delivery coupled with top-notch quality became our priority. So naturally, we decided to expand our inventory with another BOBST folder-gluer,” Jain added.
Under the leadership of Rahul and Rohit Jain, VK Global Group was established as a publishing house, having over four decades of leadership in the area of economics and commerce. With the goal of diversification, the group ventured into another niche area of packaging to specialize in creating 3D effects using holographic films and Fresnel lenses. The business offshoot, established in 2014, caters to the international market.
VK Global Group’s acquisition of Rave Scans in October 2018, via the National Company Law Tribunal resolution proceedings, is its most recent business venture. VK Global has been successful in transforming Rave Scans into a profitable production house, promising structured and systematic growth by building a respectable clientele within the FMCG and pharmaceutical space.
The new management is a strong advocate of employing state-of-the-art printing technologies to help customers create a clear differentiation in an otherwise competitive marketplace. Combining its expertise across the board, VK Global has created a novel business capable of delivering completely recyclable end products by integrating Fresnel lenses and other holographic effects.
Rave Scans converts about 200 tonnes of board each month for its packaging clients and an estimated 1,000 tonnes of paper in the commercial space.
