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.

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.
