TechNova Imaging Solutions carried the theme of green solutions to Pamex from Wan-Ifra that was held earlier this year. At Wan-Ifra the company promoted its green and environment-friendly solutions for the newspaper industry. At the four-day Pamex 2015, TechNova talked about its chemistry-free and process-free plates aimed at the commercial printing segment.

The Mumbai-based firm, which offers complete integrated solutions that include consumables, systems, software solutions and services for the print, publishing, packaging, textile, engineering, signage and photo industries, used Pamex to promote Azura TU and Azura TE thermal plates which are chemistry-free, process-free CtP solutions. Also being promoted was the chemistry-free violet CtP solution, the VioGreen Plus.

“There is still a segment of the market, especially in tier2 and tier-3 cities, which uses the analogue system. This segment will move to the digital system in coming years and we used Pamex to promote these solutions,” said CG Ramakrishnan, executive director and COO of TechNova.

Apart from these environment-friendly CtP solutions, the company also promoted its IPA reducing fount solution concentrates and machine care products. There was a Konica Minolta C1060 digital press and Duplo 646 cutting, creasing, slitting device at the TechNova stand which attracted a good number of visitors.

“The Konica Minolta digital press was a big hit with visitors and we expect to book a few orders as well. Similarly, the Duplo device and our platesetters have seen good inquiries. However, more than actualsalesit has been great that the senior management has been able to meet old customers and get introduced to potential new ones,” Ramakrishnan stated.

Talking about the 2015 edition of Pamex, he said that the event was extremely well organized and the footfall was excellent. “Tushar Dhote has led the Pamex team exceptionally. The event was advertised well and the numerous roadshows done prior to the show have been instrumental in pulling in crowds, especially from the smaller cities.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
