Dizario's new XDY – 6575NP screen printing machine.

Dizario Industries in Faridabad sells screen printing machines, LED UV systems, UV interdeck systems, roller coating machines, UV curing systems and table top curing systems. It also makes fabric printing machines. Recently, the company tied up with an undisclosed Chinese company to resell its automated flat-bed screen printing machines in India under its own name.

Dizario will provide post-sales services for the XDY – 6575NP screen printing machine, which has a maximum printing size of 650 x 750 mm and a maximum screen of 1000 x 1200 mm, and can of course print on a variety of substrates.

Dizario also sells UV curing systems wherein the UV varnish or ink is applied to an object and when it is passed through the UV light, it gets cured or polymerized instantly. “So far, we’ve installed close to 60 UV and LED UV curing systems in India. We have been receiving similar demand for the machine throughout India. We recently installed three systems in three companies in Kanpur. We have installed three machines in Delhi and Ludhiana, four in Indore and two in Ahmedabad. We will soon be setting up an LED UV system manufacturing unit in India,” says Anil Saini, managing director of Dizario Industries.

There are a lot of commercial printers who are diversifying to packaging these days. This is mainly because commercial printing is slowly being dominated by digital printing solutions. Just about a year ago, the commercial printers feared having to close their businesses due to the sharp decline in demand in the commercial printing segment. But again, they saw a ray of hope to revive their business by entering the packaging segment. I think this will help the packaging industry grow significantly,” explains Saini.

Explaining his point further, Saini says, “The downfall in commercial was mainly due to the fall in demand because of the digital segment. That won’t be the case in packaging. The demand will not die down. For a good 3 to 4 years, the demand in packaging won’t decline.”

Next the company will enter the furniture segment. It plans to provide UV coating to various wooden applications. “We were providing UV coatings on furniture in our previous company but didn’t really think about venturing into this segment earlier. The idea was to pioneer one segment first and then enter the other segments,” Saini explains.

Strong demand for Chinese screen printing machines

Close to 1000 screen printing machines are being imported to India from China each year. “If these imports are being done from China, it means there is a huge demand in India. Though we see a huge potential for screen printing machines in India, we will not be manufacturing them in India. We will continue to import these machines from China. But by the beginning of the next financial year, we will set up a LED UV system manufacturing unit in India,” shares Saini.

In the ongoing financial year, the company has already achieved a turnover of Rs. 10 crores. Going forward the company has resolved to double its turnover as well as its production capacity every consecutive year.

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.
