Indian industries face a lot of electrical burden and are constantly prone to irate voltage supply. In addition, when the demand for power increases especially during summer, current flux becomes too common and unexpected. This problem is not alone as it carries a number of risk factors influencing different electronic equipment.
The printing market in India is already vast with packaging printing the most preferred one. Ever since the Indian printing industry underwent a revolutionary change in the last 15 years, modernization gradually took over and complex printing systems started to be innovated. After the culture of traditional printing rolling mechanism tarnished, advanced machines like offset printers started showing potent visibility and soon carved their niche strongly in the Indian subcontinent. These machines were largely based on complex printing system and required extensive training and handling.
Although these printing systems are a bone to every printing company, they need special care and accurate power supply. While there are many manufacturers who are making offset printing machines in India, there are a few imported brands that outcast most offset systems namely Heidelberg, Dominant and Komori.
The outstanding performance of the world’s best offset machine makers gives several reasons to be considerate. Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG is a German precision mechanical engineering company that offers a wide product portfolio in sheet-fed offset presses, digital printing presses and label printing. From single color machines to 6-color, they have amazing quality and the speed is just remarkable. The German printing manufacturer is way ahead of quality and performance supported by a bulk production technology that can give greater printing output within a few minutes. But the machines can be afforded only for large industrial demands.
Holding an iconic name in international graphic arts market, ADAST Dominant is also an active player in manufacturing offsets and a leader in multicolor offset Printing Presses complying with International standards such as Fogra International standard for excellence in high print quality and exactness of manufacturing.
It is worthy to note that both ADAST and Heidelberg run on 220 V equally risk free with Servo stabilizer but when it comes to the third name and that is a Japanese manufacturer, the brand name Komori stands out a bit different in its power consumption. This maker is internationally known for its quality and technology and is selected as one of the “Global Niche Top 100” by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. But it needs just 110 V to operate unlike the other counterparts.
All these printing systems we have gone through are indeed very, very expensive. Some makes even run into a few crores and as they have outstanding quality, other offsets can’t just meet their standards. This is one big reason why these imported brands are preferred.
How Servo comes across as an important player?
As we know that Servo Stabilizer uses an automatic circuit to control current, it actually calculates the desired load requirement instantaneously before over current can destroy your expensive machine. Only Servo Stabilizer gives near accurate variance commendably at just +/-1% compared with traditional stabilizers of +/-10%. This means that the fragile circuitry of your machines doesn’t get run over by irate voltage inconsistency if the machine is protected by a Servo Stabilizer. The microprocessor built in the circuitry at primary winding in a Servo unit does the commendable work and the coordination between the processor and the Servo motor means better performance overall. Any fluctuation in voltage triggers the control unit to run the Servo motor and adjust current supply at secondary winding so that ultimately, your equipment gets uniform power input.
Since ADAST and Heidelberg offset machines warrant need of 220 V, they are safe with a Servo Stabilizer. But even with the Japanese manufacturer Komori, Servo is integral. It is because Servo can run as low as 110 V upwards on single volt, so when Komori is concerned, there is no output problem with Servo to this printing system either.
Some equipment do require just 110 V which means the output value of 220 V from Servo will not be within permissible range to run offset brands like Komori. But Servo Stabilizer with step down cum isolation to run these machines safely. It not just takes down the normal range of 220 V to 110 V, but also secures critical ICs and circuitry in the printer through isolation when it encounters unexpected spikes. The unwanted noise is cancelled and you get a clean current supply to the machine. However, in a Heidelberg machine, a Servo Voltage Stabilizer with isolation transformer is the best fit. It will control noise cancellation and also annihilate unwarranted flux before high voltage could reach the integrated circuit. This is a total protection system for the printing industry.
Even Servo Stabilizer of 5-10 kva is required with many small offset printing machines like Autoprint & many more. There are few paper Cutting machines which uses step down transformer. Like Polar cutting machine requires 10 – 20 kva step down transformer
Servo is great for industrial purposes, however, even residents get the system installed. Starting from just 5 KVA to 1000 KVA, a Servo can serve endless opportunities. A little knowledge and which one you need will depend on your business requirement.
