Konica Minolta India had an exciting Pamex 2020, where it showcased a wide gamut of solutions from its portfolio. The company gave a live demonstration of its AccurioPress C6100/6085, the AccurioPress C3070/3070p/3080 and the AccurioPress 6120/6136. Konica Minolta India also promoted the IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser as well as the MGI Jet Varnish 3DS, which produced embellishments with spot UV and digital foiling capabilities. The company also showcased samples printed on its B2 press.
“We tried to showcase a wide variety of solutions meant for low to upper segments of the print industry. We also demonstrated the IQ-501 system, which is meant for customers who put great value on consistency and quality as this system helps in managing color density and registration. The IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser is primarily meant for photo and packing segments,” said Ashok Sethi, executive general manager – Sales Production & Industrial Print Division, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India.
Talking about the overall scenario in the print industry, Sethi said that the weakness in the underlying economy has definitely impacted the industry, especially when it comes to demand for high-end solutions like MGI.
“The economic slowdown has impacted the print industry and our company as well. We have estimated a 15% growth in 2019 but, unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve that. But, on a positive note, the last 30-45 days of 2019 saw uptick in the activity in the industry. The footfall at Pamex 2020 has also been very good. So, we hope that the next financial year should see a turnaround,” he said.
