In line with Toyota's principle of "Autonomation", Kumar Labels has carefully planned its investment in simple & agile equipment –
- Multiple - Seven station “Full U.V. Rotary Intermittent Combinational Press” – First such Korean press installed in India
- In-line Hot-Foil + Lamination + Die-cutting “flat-bed technology”
- Complete pre-press workflow to process any kind of artwork
- Calibrated Digital Proofer; Film making and Plate making equipment installed under the same roof
- Hot Foil blocks and Die making facility within few minutes from our facility
- Multiple slitters and re-winders for high speed slitting
- Continuous Ink-jet printers for variable data printing
- Multiple inspection stations for 100% inspection
- Guillotine cutting machine for accurate cutting of “cut & stack labels”
Our choice of equipment enables us to -
Produce High Quality - click here to read why?
- Letterpress plates are inherently harder than flexo plates. They offer sharper dots which reproduce sharper images, specially process color images.
- Offset like high-viscosity paste inks that get kneaded by many ink rollers deliver a very think ink film on the letterpress plate. This further insures lower dot gain enabling sharper images.
Achieve Short Set up time - click here to read why?
- A new artwork being printed the very first time requires tweaking of colors which can be easily done with "offset like" color control on a letter press. The same requires changing annilox rollers and pre-press on a flexo press.
- An intermittent press allows different repeat lengths to be programmed on the machine enabling printing of any odd size label without much wastage. The same requires changing of printing cylinders on a flexo press.
Execute jobs with Low Material Wastage - click here to read why?
- The paper feeding path is just as long as the length of an intermittent press (approximately 3-4 meters) unlike a flexo press in which the feeding is several tens of meters. This enables less wastage during job set up.
- Programmable repeat length feature of an intermittent press requires only one set of print cylinders that print all repeats. This reduces tooling cost and wastage of printed substrate.

Offer Quick Turnaround of Jobs - click here to read why?
- We have in-house plate making capability and are able to source films (negatives) from under the same roof.
- Our inks are matched in-house and other raw material (foiling blocks, cutting dies etc.) are sourced from our partners who are located no more than 10 minutes away from us.
- All foil blocks, dies, embossing blocks are available locally within 4 hours unlike a rotary die or rotary foiling station that requires imported tooling available in no less than 3 days.
