Concepts, a digital and offset printing firm headquartered in Okhla, Delhi, and managed by Ashwani Dhamija, deployed Konica Minolta’s Accurio Press C2070 in March 2017 which enabled it to operate Duplex printing on 300 gsm papers with perfect front and back registration and color consistency in print run. The company was established in 2003 and deployment of the solution helped it meet its requirements of quality digital printing, ensuring accuracy in color gamut reproduction.

The company now compliments Konica Minolta for its cutting edge portfolio of digital printing solutions which is supporting businesses in short run printing jobs, cutting operational expenses significantly. ”Our market at present is into short run printing. Konica Minolta helps us in short run printing in a reduced time span so we can fulfill our customer’s demand in a satisfactory time. We can now print visiting cards, invitation cards, brochures etc. and even coffee table books along with the option of banner printing,” comments Ashwani Dhamija, managing director, Concepts, on the performance of Accurio Press C2070.

The Accurio Press C2070 machine comes as the successor of bizhub PRESS C1070 press and is an ideal solution to cater to mid-range digital color printing jobs. The solution has been launched with substantial advancements and refinements as compared to its predecessors and offers comprehensive scalability to meet the growing requirements of printing businesses and enhance productivity.

The machine offers advanced features and technology including high speed dual scanning at speeds up to 240 ipm for hard-copy originals; 1200×3600 dpi resolution with 8-bit processing for smoother, more realistic images; enhanced Simitri HDE toner for superior halftone and skin-tone reproduction, with biomass plant-based material to reduce environmental impact. Its SEAD V Screen-Enhancing Active Digital Processing System continuously maintains image stability.

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.
