Canon’s new imagePROGRAF PRO-541S at Pamex 2020

Pamex Preview – Canon in Hall 1 Stand E20

Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-541S

Canon will show for the first time its new wide format printer, the imagePROGRAF PRO-541S, at the upcoming Pamex 2020 from 6 to 9 January at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai. The 8-color inkjet printer was launched for the south and southeast Asian markets in November last year. The PRO-541S is ideal for commercial advertising posters, signage, POS, and also for soft proofing.

The new PRO Series printers are powered by a high-speed image processing engine – the L-COA PRO processor. The single 1.28-inch-wide Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) printhead on the new printer is capable of ejecting ink droplets size as small as 4 picoliters per color.

In addition to the imagePROGRAF PRO-541S, Canon will display its entire range of digital production presses such as its workhorse Canon imagePRESS C8000VP, its flagship imagePRESS C710 and the imageRUNNER ADV 8585 along with the wide-format inkjet printer, the TX-5300 MFP T36.

The target audience for the company would be jobbers, copy shop owners, CRD and book and offset printers that are adding digital book production capacity.

Indian Printer and Publishers’ editorial team will be available around the show. You can go and meet them at the Indian Printer and Publishers stand in Hall 1 Stand E69.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
