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.

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.
