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.

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.
