HP launched its Indigo 7eco digital press at Pamex 2020 at the BEC in Mumbai. The new Indigo digital press is powered by what the company calls, ‘Indigo LEP (liquid electrography) Technology.’ A Appadurai of HP India says, “With the launch of sustainable technology in the printing industry, HP aims to introduce consumers to the latest innovations enabling them to increase their production at an affordable cost, with less power consumption, manpower, production time and wastage. Introducing advanced digital capabilities are a part of HP’s commitment to provide the best solutions to help businesses in staying ahead of the curve.”

The HP Indigo 7eco digital press can print up to 160 color pages a minute in its Enhanced Productivity Mode (EPM), which has the potential to simulate 4-color process printing using only three separations and inks – cyan, magenta and yellow. The use of 3-color separations increases color printing productivity (ostensibly the speed of the machine) by 33%, while the EPM printing consumes 25% less energy (and ostensibly one less ink) per printed page, further enhancing the sustainability of the press.

The access of the device to a comprehensive suite of software applications through the HP PrintOS secured cloud platform helps in increasing efficiency, automation and monitoring giving control over print operations. The color automation feature is said to comply with the toughest industry color standards, while saving time and costs with fewer color adjustments and reprints.

The technology is backed by the unique combination of HP Indigo ElectroInk, thermal offset transfer and direct contact transfer which gives high-quality color, wide media and application versatility including high coverage printing, and the highest speeds for quality print applications.

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.
