Unique was founded by R.V. Nerker in 1960 as a prepress house with a tradition for high-quality digital imaging. The reins of the company were handed over to son of the founder, Ashok Nerker, who ventured into digital flexo prepress and later moved forward into flexo printing and offset printing. It is now the third generation at Unique running the company. Ashok Nerker mentored his son Gautam to take charge, who now heads the company.
The company already had two OMET label presses and has reaffirmed its faith in the brand by investing in yet another OMET label press. Unique have pioneered in producing shrink sleeves on narrow-web presses many years ago on their OMETs.
The Omet X4 installed at Unique is a 370-mm-wide, 8-color press, with all UV-flexo, chill drums, and two corona treaters (one before and one after printing before rewinding) so that any variable data that needs to be overprinted can be done offline, a two-sided electrostatic web cleaner, web turn-bar, Delam-Relam, one diecutting station, two rewinders, cold-foiling option and fully automatic registration control.
Gautam Nerker says, “Our experience with OMETs has been very good, it has helped us serve the labels and shrink-sleeves market with ease and efficiency. It is a very reliable equipment that has helped us grow. We are happy with the performance of the machines, after-sales support and the high-quality team present in India."
The sale of this OMET X4 was handled by OMET's India agent Weldon Celloplast Limited New Delhi.
