Tecnau’s Libra 800 has won a European Digital Press Association (EDP) Award 2018 in the category finishing/enhancement as the best book-on-demand postpress solution during Fespa Global Print Expo 2018 in Berlin.

“Tecnau Libra 800 was the choice as it enables continuous production of single copy books without manual adjustments from roll to finished book at speeds up to 800 books per hour,” said Stefano De Marco, sales and marketing director at Tecnau.

The perfect binding system allows printers to produce short-run digitally printed books, catalogs and magazines. The highly modular and configurable solution supports on-the-fly changeover in book size at speed, ensuring full integrity control page by page and exact matching between book block and cover.

The reliable binding system has been an evolving and growing solution, widening the array of possible applications and driving efficiency and intelligence throughout the complete production workflow. The EDP Award 2018 is a great honor as it recognizes the distinct advantages, technological innovation and application flexibility that the Tecnau Libra 800 book-on-demand solution offers to its users.

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.
