Lee Metters (Group Business Development Director, Domino Printing Sciences) receives the EDP Award for Book Printing Solution from Michael Seidl (Publisher, Print & Publishing Austria)

Domino Digital Printing Solutions’ Domino K630i book block solution has won the Book Printing Solution category award at the EDP Awards ceremony, which took place on 10 May during FESPA 2017. This is the second year running when Domino has won an award at the annual EDP Awards. 

The EDP Association represents 20 member magazines across Europe covering 26 countries and reaching more than half a million readers in Europe. The awards recognize innovation and quality in digital print, honoring the best new developments in print production tools, software developments, substrates, inks, materials and finishing systems.

Bryan Palphreyman, product manager for Domino K630i, said, “We already know how cost effective and highly productive this monochrome digital book printing solution is, and we are delighted that this has now been publicly and independently recognized with this industry award, so soon after the launch of this solution.” 

Domino K630i was officially launched at Hunkeler Innovationdays in February 2017. The modular solution was demonstrated converting paper rolls into high-quality book blocks utilizing Domino’s high-speed, compact, single engine duplex K630i ink jet printing press integrated with Hunkeler web processing equipment.

“Within the book printing sector, there is a demand for flexible technology that not only facilitates high production output and is geared for rapid job change, but also minimizes manning requirements and material waste. The compact size and small footprint of the Domino K630i press gives it the required flexibility and modularity to be easily integrated into existing web processing and finishing equipment, whilst its variable production speeds of up to 150 meters per minute meets the high productivity required for printing in the book sector,” Palphreyman added.

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.
