At the upcoming Pamex 2017 show, Konica Minolta will showcase a variety of digital solutions for the printing industry—from wide format printers to production printers and software.

On show will be the Accurio Press Series C6100, which is a comprehensive and fully modular line of digtal printing technologies and solutions, digital press suites, software and cloud-based tool for integrating, managing and executing a seamless production of color workflow. The Accurio Press series supports business growth by expanding its printing services, automating efficiency, raising output quality and lowering costs.

The Accurio Press C2060 offers features and technology including high-speed dual scanning at speeds up to 240 ipm for hard-copy originals and 1200 x 1200 DPI resolution with 8-bit processing for smoother, more realistic images.

On display will also be the third generation of the bizhub PRESS C71hc. This press packs in immense benefits over its predecessor, incorporating advanced color reproduction capabilities of the manufacturer’s proprietary high-chroma toner that produces enhanced printing outputs. The bizhub PRESS C71hc also comes with an optional banner tray to support printing on media up to 13×47.

Another solution from Konica Minolta’s portfolio that will be shown at Pamex is the bizhub PRO 1100. The press delivers real value to any print production environment—with high-speed 100 ppm B&W output, high paper and toner capacity, standard built-in print controller and compact footprint to save space on the production floor.

In the wide format segment, Konica Minolta will have the KIP 770 press, which is a powerful, modular solution for wide-format printing in any production environment, with simple multi-touch control on a vivid 12.1 inch screen, high-definition print technology, integrated print control software and a variety of system configurations to fit the needs of a user’s application.

Finally, the company will display the MGI Jet Varnish 3DS. The solution is a revolutionary piece of technology which disrupts the dimensions of printing with its astounding spot UV and 3D tactile varnishing capabilities. The machine can transform a standard printed output into a high quality spot UV printed sheet or further into a high margin 3D-embossed output with a varnish of up to 100 microns, making the colors appear more vibrant.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
