‘Large Format meets LED-UV’ is the banner under which Koenig & Bauer is inviting interested commercial printers to presentations of an 8-color Rapida 145 perfector press from 4 to 7 September in Radebul. Introductory lectures and extensive practical demonstrations will offer insights into technologies to make 4-over-4 production even more efficient.

The fully automated press runs perfecting production with sheets up to format 106 x 145 cm and at speeds up to 15,000 sheets per hour. Highlights of the demonstrations include the autonomous printing of flyers, brochures and other typical web-to-print products – also in AutoRun mode. As a world premiere in large format, the 8-color perfector press features LED-UV drying technology. A reel sheeter, furthermore, enables the alternating use of reel and sheet stocks. Tailored solutions for networked production in large-format commercial printing, such as the Rapida LiveApps, the Optimus Dash MIS, LogoTronic Professional and Connected Services, will round off the agenda.

Print professionals interested in attending the presentations can obtain an invitation and all further information through the local sheetfed offset sales partners of Koenig & Bauer.

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.
