Unilux Opens India Sales and Service Office
SADDLE BROOK, N.J.—With the large flexible package and narrow-web printers driving demand in India, Unilux, the world?s leading designer and manufacturer of stroboscopic inspection systems, has opened a sales and service office in New Delhi. Ashwani Kumar has joined Unilux as sales manager - India to open the new office. He will provide sales, marketing and basic technical sales support to solidify Unilux’s rapidly strengthening presence in the country’s printing and converting industries.
“We’re still quite new in the printing and converting industries in India, but Unilux inspection system sales in the country have doubled every year for the past three years,” said Mike Simonis, president, Unilux. “Large flexible packaging printers for consumer products have been buying Unilux systems directly from us, and narrow-web printers are specifying them from press and rewinder manufacturers.
“Ashwani Kumar has the ideal skills and qualifications to introduce Unilux systems to India’s industrial base and help our customers make the most effective use of our technology,” he said. “He has worked with our customers in their factories and has helped provide solutions to many types of production problems.”
Kumar joins Unilux after spending the last two years in sales support for Jasch Industries Limited, New Delhi, Unilux’s agent for India in the steel industry. Before that, he spent eight years with an Indian company that manufactured machinery for the metals, paper and plastics industry. He holds a BA degree in economics from Himachai Pradesh University and a MBA degree in international business from Symbiosis University.
Unilux stroboscopic inspection lights enable press operators and inspectors to spot defects at full production speeds by using the stroboscopic effect to essentially freeze images of fast-moving lines. In these frozen images, defects stand out. Fixed-mounted lights can provide inspection capability at strategic points along a process line, and operators can use battery-powered handheld lights to pinpoint the causes of defects and determine if the press needs to be adjusted or stopped. Hands-free operation can be achieved by synchronizing inspection systems to line speed with Unilux’s microprocessor-based, programmable controllers.
