Hunkeler at Messe Lucerne 25-28 February 2019

The Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019 is scheduled to be held in Switzerland.

Ricoh will present patent pending technology designed to tweak Print Service Providers’ (PSPs) production at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019. The event is scheduled to take place between 25-28 February 2019 at Messe Lucerne, Switzerland. The Ricoh ProT VC70000 continuous feed inkjet press will make its worldwide public debut at the event.

At the largest specialist continuous feed event, Ricoh will present the Pro VC70000’s patent pending dryer technology designed for greater ink coverage and to eliminate cockling. It prints 12,000 sheets an hour and assures fast, consistent and high quality print. It uses new Ricoh-developed inks that support traditional offset coated substrates. The latter capability will be highlighted with a wealth of offset coated paper applications including a 225 mm square sewn and bound photobook printed on 150 gsm media as well as direct mailers and leaflets.

The compact Ricoh ProT V20000 will showcase flexible and responsive mono continuous feed inkjet production. It enables PSPs to produce applications ranging from pharmaceutical leaflets to transactional print such as bills, statements and policy documents as well as books and direct mail.

The Ricoh ProT C9200 digital press boasts of colour sheet fed productivity and reduced operational costs. Built on the Ricoh ProTM C9100 technology platform, it offers increased image quality with outstanding registration to empower business growth.

To support efficient and streamlined continuous feed and sheet fed production, Ricoh will also present new additions to its software portfolio and highlight the capabilities of Ricoh’s TotalFlow BatchBuilder and Ricoh’s ProcessDirector.

Eef De Ridder, vice president of Commercial Printing, Commercial and Industrial Printing Group, Ricoh Europe, says, “Our continuous feed production platform is growing fast and we are delighted to be able to give visitors to Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019 a first look at all the exciting technologies featured in our Pro VC70000 system. The combination of Ricoh proprietary technologies, including the unique dryer and new inks. It supports offset substrates and opens up a whole new world of production possibilities.”

Ricoh will join other print manufacturers on the ‘Successful With Automation’ panel discussion during the ‘Partner Conference’ and is proud to again sponsor the DOXNET lectures and networking event.

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.
