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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
