Mumbai-based Advanced Graphics System is a supplier of color measurement and management solutions. The company represents some of the leading brands from across the world. It also supplies digital sample cutting solutions for the packaging, digital and flatbed printing market.

At the recently concluded Pamex 2017, the company introduced for the first time to the Indian customers a text verification software called TVT (text verification tool), which helps in comparing two different file formats like a Word to a PDF or a PDF to an Illustrator to an HTML, etc., and helps in finding out the missing text, change of fonts, change of image size, barcodes, QR codes, etc.

“This solution is meant for customers in the packaging segment as well as in the commercial printing segment,” said Vishnuu R Kamat of Advanced Graphics System.

Advanced Graphics System also promoted solutions from X-Rite, a very popular brand in India that makes spectrodensitometers, auto tracking devices, plate readers, etc.

Another popular product displayed at Pamex was the sample maker from China-based Aoke. Kamat informed that there are close to 40 installations of the sample makers in India.

Other solutions that Advanced Graphics System talked about at the expo were PDF and print inspection software for testing any missing fonts, missing bar codes, QR codes, CIP 3 and closed loop solution controls for offset presses, proofing & profiling RIP software, and laser cutting and engraving machines.

Talking about the response received at Pamex, Kamat said that apart from the first day all the other three days were very busy with a significant footfall. “We met with a lot of people from the packaging industry. However, there were also a few from the commercial printing industry space,” he said.

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.
