The Printools single clamp perfect binding machine

At Printpack India 2019, which takes place from 1-6 February 2019 at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida, Printools Graphics Pvt. Ltd. will introduce its new six clamp perfect book binding machine, with advanced electronics and best craftsmanship along with its high-speed 12-inches single clamp and 17-inches three clamp perfect binding machines.
Bengaluru-based Printools Graphics is a manufacturer of machines for post printing applications. Established in 1969, Printools has been in the industry for over seven decades, and were the pioneers in manufacturing typecasting machines in India, in 1985. It later ventured from letterpress typecasting to the finishing segment and now manufactures book binding machines.
Trade shows are very important for manufacturers and for generating businessas they offer a perfect platform to showcase products and reach out to a large audience. The company has participated in many Printpack events so far and has high hopes with Printpack 2019.
As events like Printpack help in generating more business leads, the company is expecting to convert them into deals and to find some dealers for both the domestic and international markets. At the show, Printools will target book manufacturers such as publishers, printers, binders and note book manufacturers.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
