The seminars will be conducted on 25 May in Delhi, 27 May in Ahmedabad, 29 May in Surat, 30 May in Vasai, 3 June in Bangalore, 5 June in Hyderabad, 7 June in Guwahati, and on 8 June in Kolkata. Conducted by experts from Komori India and Japan, the objective is to showcase the ability of the company’s packaging presses for solution based packaging.

Satoshi Mochida, representative director and president of Komori group, said, “We want to show our strong presence in the market in terms of reaching out to the entire potential packaging customers as we have proven globally. Through packaging seminars, we are sending the message to our prestigious customers that we believe in solution-based approach for packaging printers.” Through the packaging seminar, Komori intends to extend its vision to become an organization that leads and contributes to the growth and sustainability of the society and industry; of its customers by providing the best solutions, products, and services that are beyond expectations – ‘Kando.’

A registration process has been initiated for Komori customers interested in packaging and for their queries: Komori will attempt to answer all queries.

Sangam Khanna, deputy managing director of Komori India, says “In the coming years, there is strong forecast for a massive … boom in the packaging market. From mono cartons to value-added cartons and E and G flute cartons and so on… This platform will also have an interactive session on the problems customers face during their busy production planning and execution. Many customers wish to produce certain types of cartons and do not have a solution on how to print and produce these. The print experts will provide solutions and ways to resolve their issues within the limited time available.”

Komori India is now selling its Lithrone G40 and Lithrone G37 as flagship packaging presses in the market. The seminar will explain and discuss, how Komori packaging presses deliver high-quality print and flexibility while balancing technical fluency with high standard of productivity and ease of operation.

Keeping in mind the need to bridge the gap between customers and technology, Komori aims to reach out to every customer who is facing challenges in terms of the use of technology to increase productivity and revenue. The expert team from Komori Japan will focus on the difficulties faced by customers and help them to understand how they can grow their business using Komori’s cutting edge printing technology. The packaging seminar will help customers to identify the areas they need to improve and how Komori can address their packaging needs with print preparation, changeover time and automated operation using register and density control and quality inspection technologies.

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.
