At the recently concluded Media Expo Mumbai 2019, Monotech Solutions launched the Pixeljet miniRTR 6 feet UV LED roll-to-roll printer. The printer is equipped with XAAR print head and comes in a 6-color and a 4-color plus white, plus varnish version. It can handle a broad scope of flexible media for indoor and outdoor applications.

The 4-color plus white varnish version has the ability to print white in different modes, improving the opacity of the printed material as well as increasing color contrast and readability. The Pixeljet miniRTR has been designed for printers who are willing to move from eco-solvent printing to UV printing within a limited budget.

In addition to the Pixeljet miniRTR 6, Monotech displayed Pixeljet UVmini flatbed with spot UV that enhances the existing print quality. The Pixeljet UVmini is equipped with Ricoh print head and can handle media thickness of 70 mm and is configured as CMYK + WV.

Another product on display was the Pixeljet 2512 RMO, which is a UV hybrid flatbed printer and can print on rigid as well as soft media. It can be used for indoor applications and industrial applications like glass printing, wood printing and PVC printing, among others.

In this competitive market, the only way of differentiating your business and woo the customer is to add value to the exiting print and think beyond CMYK printing. We are now focusing on digital enhancement and have already introduced our products in the market including the launch of Pixeljet miniRTR at this expo. Sensing the demands and market regulations we are acting more on offering products which can add value to the print,” said Manoj Garg, product head – Wide Format Graphics.

Monotech also showed a large format poster printer from Canon along with format 3D printer from BigRep.

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.
