One of India’s leading media concerns, Amar Ujala Publications, has been busy getting its printing plants ready for the future. The last year has seen Amar Ujala Publications investing in at least ten automation systems produced by Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC-EAE). As a result, the Dutch specialist in measurement and control equipment for the printing industry has seen a significant rise in its share on the Indian market.


The Manugraph Cityline press, located in Agra, around 150 kilometers  south of the capital New Delhi, has been equipped with 14  mRC-3D cameras for color register, all fitted with Automatic Ink Mist Shields (AIMS) for automatic cleaning of the lenses. Likewise in Agra, 14  mRC-3D cameras for color register, fitted with AIMS, were installed on the Manugraph M360 press. The last project in Agra consisted of 2  mRC-3D cameras for color register, fitted with AIMS, for the TPH Orient   press. This installation represents an expansion of the existing system.


In Lucknow, approximately 400 kilometers  south-east of New Delhi, two TPH presses were provided with QIPC-EAE automation systems. The TPH Orient 35000 press here was equipped with 21  mRC-3D cameras for color register and cut-off ribbon control, fitted with AIMS. On the TPH Orient press, a total of 2  mRC-3D cameras for color register were installed, likewise with AIMS. The 2 new cameras represented an addition to the new tower on the press.


In Noida, a suburb of New Delhi, a further two presses were provided with new automation systems. On the TPH Orient 45000, a total of 18  mRC-3D cameras for color register and cut-off control were installed. All cameras here were also fitted with AIMS. On an extra tower on the TPH Orient, 2  mRC-3D cameras with AIMS were also installed.

Other sites

A TPH Orient Xcel press in Dehradun, around 200 kilometers  north of New Delhi, was also fitted with 21  mRC-3D cameras with AIMS for colour register and cut-off control. The TPH Orient press in Kanpur, 50 kilometers  south-west of Lucknow, was equipped with a new tower which included 2  mRC-3D cameras with AIMS for color register. Finally, in Moradabad, 150 kilometers  east of New Delhi, 2  mRC-3D cameras with AIMS for color register were installed on the TPH Orient’s new tower.

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.
