HP Inc will be introducing the new HP Indigo 30000 digital press in India through its first installation at Parksons Packaging plant in Daman. The HP Indigo 30000 is a one-of-a-kind, field proven, digital folding carton press that can help the carton printing industry to address the demands coming from the healthcare, food & beverage, personal care and cosmetics sectors.

Commenting on this, Ramesh Kejriwal, chairman of Parksons Packaging said,We have been looking at cutting-edge technology for our business and HP Indigo 30000 is the perfect fit because it has the right technology in terms of their system and quality. The entire market is evolving, and the brand owners are looking at how they can enhance their brands and launch new products. We have taken a significant step in that direction by partnering with HP.

Alon Bar-Shany, vice president and general manager at HP Indigo, said, “Brands want quality and good price, they want faster on-time delivery, they want to be able to react much faster through various elements of customization, and there’s a certain growing aspect of brand protection and security. With the HP Indigo presses, we are trying not to just provide printing technology, but work on an interim solution, which will enable everything from design, color management, printing to finishing, and of course meeting the very high quality standards of offset.”

“The HP technology will simplify the complexity of design handling, allow our customers to dip in and out of their short-run requirements, smart packaging support like greater track-and-trace and the ability to interact with their end-users,” said Siddharth Kejriwal, director of Parksons Packaging.

The HP Indigo 30000 is a 7-color press with CMYK OVG, interchangeable with white ink. This extended color gamut enables printing of PANTONE colors to fulfill strict brand color requirements. It is capable of printing on paperboards, metPET and synthetic material of 250-600 microns thickness. The press comes equipped with two interchangeable coating units for aqueous and UV varnishes. It can produce high-quality, B2-format (20×30-inch) applications and has HP’s one-shot technology integrated, which enables perfect color-to-color registration. It also has an in-built spectrophotometer for easy color management.

“HP Indigo 30000 brings path-breaking innovation into the packaging printing segment with its unique digital capabilities that can help create customized and personalized products. We are excited to work with Parksons Packaging and help them drive greater value and quality for their customers,” said A Appadurai, country manager, Indigo and PageWide Web Press, Graphics Solutions Business, HP Inc.

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.
