Monotech launched the Pixeljet UV LED roll to roll wide-format printer at the recently held Media Expo 2016. The printer is a CMYK plus white printer. “The UV roll to roll printer is a unique offering for the market where you can print on new media like fabric, vinyl, flex and many more,” shared TP Jain, managing director of Monotech. In addition, Monotech also launched Pixeljet Starfire series with Spectra print-heads, a solvent printer with four Spectra print-heads and speeds up to 2,800 sq. ft. per hour.

The company also displayed the Pixeljet Jumbo series printer with KM512i print-head. “This is an extremely good printer in terms of quality and we had good success with this product,” said Jain. Apart from this, the company showcased an eco-solvent printer as well as a Canon 8410se poster printer at the event. 

Sharing his views on the market, Jain sa id, “We have seen good growth this year compared to last year. Definitely the preference is to go for printers which can offer higher speed and better quality. A lot of transformation is happening in the market and people are replacing their old printers with new highspeed, better quality ones.”

Jain add ed, “In wide format, UV is the way to go. We will be launching more products with UV inks since it is environment friendly and we foresee the trend coming to the Indian market for adoption of UV-based printers. At the same time, on the solvent platform, we will be launching products with higher speeds where people can do their work on a single printer rather than on multiple printers. And , of course, we have a complete range of solvent products from Mimaki , which is quite formidable.” Monotech represents Mimaki in the southern and eastern regions of India.

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.
