Green printing solutions from Colorjet at Media Expo Mumbai 2018

Green was the theme at Colorjet’s Media Expo stand

Colorjet, a well known manufacturer of inkjet digital printers, showcased its solutions based on the theme of green printing at the recently concluded Media Expo Mumbai 2018. The company showed multiple solutions that focused on environment-friendly printing solutions.

“We have shown entry-level green printing solutions as well as advanced solutions for printers who want to further expand their green printing segment. We want to tell the industry that we have green printing solutions for all segments,” says Smarth Bansal, senior product manager, Colorjet India Ltd.

The various green digital printing solutions on display at Media Expo included the VULCAN, which is the first UV roll to roll printing machine and uses Zero VOC UV inks. The VULCAN is equipped with Kyocera printhead, with the capability to deliver prints at very high printing quality and speed.

Another printer on display was the SOFTJET GRAND, which prints with aqueous water based inks. A 3.2-meter wide printer, the SOFTJET GRAND is efficiently optimized to replace PVC-based media completely. It easily prints on polyester-based fabrics, which can be recycled and uses environment-friendly aqueous based inks, an essential, to achieve goals of green printing.

Another model, the POLO HQ, prints with ROHS eco-solvent inks and has been developed with proprietary GreenTech technology.  GreenTech enables the POLO HQ to print with environment-friendly eco-solvent inks and ensures low chemical emissions to reduce environmental and health hazards.

Additionally, ColorJet also showcased their regular range of digital printers like the IRISJET PRO, the AURAJET, equipped with Xaar technology and the VERVE MINI.

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.
