Konica Minolta Business Solutions, a global leader in advanced imaging and networking technologies, recently participated in Interprint Expo 2018. Hosted in Chandigarh from 14 to 17 December 2018, the exhibition saw Konica Minolta once again underline its advanced technological capabilities in the digital printing space through live demonstrations of its wide range of state-of-the-art digital printing solutions.

During the four-day event, Konica Minolta showcased several innovative digital printing solutions, including the AccurioPress 6100, the AccurioPress C3070, and the bizhub PRO 1100. It also displayed various samples created by Dulari Digital, a Punjab-based business which recently installed the MGI JETvarnish 3D. Through these demonstrations, Konica Minolta gave attendees at the event a first-hand experience of the differentiation that Konica Minolta’s cutting-edge digital printing technology brings to the table.

Speaking on the demonstration, Vijay Kamat, national product manager – Industrial Print, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India said, “Consumer demands and requirements are evolving at a rapid pace, and the industry needs to keep pace with this ongoing evolution. Through these demonstrations, we have highlighted how Konica Minolta’s cutting-edge digital printing solutions can help print and printing businesses cater to the demand for new-age print jobs, thus diversifying their operations and maximizing their profitability.”

Two top-of-the-line production printers from Konica Minolta – the AccurioPress C3070 and the AccurioPress C6100 – combine high-speed color print production with integrated finishing capabilities to deliver superlative quality prints with high consistency. They can handle a wide range of media of varying thickness and length, and have the IQ-501 – an intelligent quality optimizer which continuously monitors and adjusts color and front-to-back registration during printing – as an optional feature. Both the AccurioPress C3070 and the AccurioPress C6100 are designed for swift, accurate, and high-quality print operations, with minimal manual intervention and no requirement for any special skills, enabling them to deliver unmatched print productivity, versatility, and usability.

The Konica Minolta bizhub PRO 1100, on the other hand, is the perfect entry point into digital black and white printing. Designed for superior productivity and operational flexibility, the bizhub PRO 1100 delivers best-in-class printing speed, along with modular paper feeding and versatile finishing options. This makes it perfect for small to medium print and printing businesses looking to expand their operations and improve profitability by catering to the ever-evolving market requirements.

Interprint Expo is a premier exhibition for the printing and packaging industries which provides a unique platform to buyers and sellers of prepress, in-press, postpress, finishing, converting, digital & signage, and packaging machines to explore investment, collaborations and knowledge-sharing. Organized by OPA & Udan Media and Communications Pvt. Ltd., the latest edition of the event is aimed at reflecting the market’s evolutionary path driven by new needs, competition, technology, channels, and other developments.

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.
