Thomson Press
Shoei page folder

Delhi-based Thomson Press, books, magazines and newspapers printer, has installed two new Shoei Combi-32 KLL Series paper folding machines, and Sivakasi-based Orient Color Art Printers, manufacturer of books and stationeries, installed a new Shoei Combi-32 KLI Series paper folder with built-in automatic double bundler system for both 16 and 32 page sections. Thomson Press is running 13 Shoei Folders in its Faridabad and Noida Plant. Orient is running three Shoei Folders to meet the increasing demand for books and magazines.

Shoei Combi Series is a combination of buckle plate and knife folder, ideal for the production of 16 and 32 pages book signatures and comes in paper widths of 66, 74, 82, 97, 112 cm and speed of 180 metres per minute. With Shoei’s built-in automatic bundling system, machines could be operated by a single operator. The operator can concentrate fully on the infeed of paper pallets, removing the bundled signatures and checking the end product. Shoei’s patented feeder can handle curled stocks and thin paper smoothly, because the sheet separator holds the tail end of the sheets firmly to the stock not allowing the top sheets to float, eliminating double sheets during high speeds suction pull-out wheel operation. Shoei Folders offer maximum versatility and productivity. Suprabhat is the exclusive distributor for Shoei in India since 1978.

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.
