One of the Indian digital printers who has become a regular attendee at the event, MN Pandey of Avantika says, “At Hunkeler Innovationdays one gets the opportunity to see many interesting digital applications in one place. While many of the book printers may not want to invest in high-end digital presses and automation in the bindery right now, the major publishers are well aware of the possibilities and quite keen to make use of them as they become available.
“In any case every book printing customer wants almost instant delivery. Some of the higher levels of automation may be a few years away for Indian book and commercial printers but there are printers who are keen to learn and understand what can be done in the future. And we are keen to somehow take advantage of what the Hunkeler Innovationdays event has to offer in terms of knowledge and possibilities for our market.”
