At the recently concluded Media Expo Mumbai 2019, wide format printing solutions provider Colorjet unveiled some new technologies for the Indian market. The highlight of the company’s stand was the LED UV Vulcan 3200 wide format printer and the upgraded version of its Polo HQ eco-solvent printer.

The 3.2 meter Vulcan 3200 on display at Media Expo Mumbai sports five Konica Minolta printheads for the first time. Previously, the printer was using only Ricoh and Kyocera printheads.

“The new Konica Minolta printheads offer greater speed compared to Ricoh and Kyocera printheads. Also, the drop size is 14 picoliter and the block-outs are generated in six passes. These significantly enhance productivity,” says Smarth Bansal of Colorjet India.

The 6-color Vulcan 3200 can print on substrate such as vinyl, advertising banner, PET, wall paper and fabric, among others.

The other highlight at Colorjet’s stand was the 3.2 meter Polo HQ eco-solvent printer. This version of Polo HQ sports 6 colors and was shown for the first time to industry at Media Expo Mumbai. Last year, the 4-color version of Polo HQ was launched in the Indian market.

Talking about the UV LED printing segment in the Indian market, Bansal says that this segment is witnessing very robust growth due to small base.

“I feel the LED UV segment will continue to expand at a very good rate because a lot of brand owners are now focusing on green printing. Also, printers too are getting aware,” Bansal concludes.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
