With its array of professional printing machines, Canon India expanded its Colorwave series with the launch of the Océ Colorwave 3700 at Printpack India show on 1 February 2019. Inaugurated by Kazutada Kobayashi, president and chief executive officer, Canon India Pvt. Ltd., in the presence of Puneet Datta, senior director, professional printing, Canon exhibited a prolific range of imagePRESS series of printers, TM series and ColorWave 700. Canon will continue to showcase its products at its 150 square meter stand (H-15), in Hall 9 from 1 to 6 February.

Speaking on the occasion, Kobayashi said, “Innovation and customer delight remains integral to every offering we bring forth at Canon. Staying true to this commitment, we have been addressing diverse market expectations of the professional printing industry ever since our inception. The printing industry has been evolving at a rapid pace, marked by various transformations that has occurred across industries. Our association with Printpack is a testament to our stance at elevating the printing industry in India in line with these market requirements.”

He further added, “Having received an overwhelming response during the previous editions, we are delighted to continue our association with Printpack, an opportune platform for us to showcase some of our best technology to our customers. We are looking forward to engage, connect and collaborate with participants and receive first-hand feedback from them.”

Canon India showcased the imagePRESS series of printers including imagePRESS C8000 VP, imagePRESS C650, imageRUNNER ADV 8585, TM-5200 Printer, TM-5300 MFP L36ei, PRO-540, and the ColorWave 700 along with software solutions. In addition to this, Canon also hosted a discussion zone, which showcased their new High Speed Cut Sheet Inkjet Printer i300 along the sample gallery.

Sharing his thoughts, Datta said, “Driven by Industrial Revolution 4.0, we have witnessed seismic changes in the print landscape, or as we call it – Print 4.0. At Canon India, we are proud to bring forth some of our innovative and technological marvels that resonate with the changing requirements of our growing customer base. Every time Printpack exhibition has provided us with an appropriate platform to demonstrate some of our marquee offerings, amidst a large gathering of jobbers, commercial printers and photo labs. The products showcased at the exhibition today are bundled with cutting-edge technology and are built to offer our customers a unique printing experience, enabling them to improve efficiencies and grow business profitability.”

He added, “We are thankful to IPAMA team for providing us a platform to educate our customers about the unique technologies and exceptional feature of our products that can help them make informed business choices. Our aim is to reinforce our range of digital offering and replicate another success event this year as well. We envision the exhibition to play an imperative role in boosting sales for our product showcase and further reinforce our foothold in the industry. I am happy to share that on the first day of our exhibit, we have sold our flagship product imagePRESS C8000VP to Avantika Printers.”

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.
