PVG students complete project on the behaviour of press returned and virgin inks
Sachin Shardul,,23 April 2010

Six final year students from the printing faculty of Pune Vidyarthi Griha’s (PVG) College Of Engineering and Technology (COET) have successfully completed a project.

The project: The behaviour of virgin and press returned solvent-based gravure inks, was supervised by professor and research coordinator Akshay Joshi of PVG.

The six students are Vinay Mutha, Sachin Sonkusale, Swanand Kullarwar, Anand Kulkarni, Ketan Das and Vikas Tripathi.

The project was based on the issue of utilising the leftover ink in the press in a methodological way.

Joshi said: “The project focused on the proper utilisation of the leftover or press returned inks. If this ink is not utilised in a systematic manner then it adds to the wastage thereby reducing profitability of the printer.”

Joshi added: “The research was not limited just to gravure printing but also included areas like working on shades and consistency required from leftover or press returned inks, either virgin or fresh inks directly from the manufacturers.”

The research was completed in eight months, with the researchers spending 12 hours a day doing the project.

Mutha, one of the students, said: “This is surely an achievement by the entire team. It would have been impossible to complete the project without the support of our professor.”

The research was funded by the America-based Omnova Solutions.

The chapter invites nominations from an individual / organization in Maharashtra. The chapter constitutes a committee to scrutinize the nominations received, andrecommend the name of the person to whom the award is to be given. I (Prof. Dr. D B Phatak) am glad to inform you that the selection committee has recommended Prof. G VGarje, Chairman, BOS in Computer Engineering, University of Pune for the Yashokirti Puraskar for the year 2008.
