The textile industry has taken a big leap in the digital printing sector. Digital fabric printing, one of the most promising developments in the textile industry, has opened numerous prospects to enhance the quality and maintain the growing demands of textile printing. Anything can be printed with ease and perfection on fabric using digital printing technology.

Surat-based Orange O Tec is a dealer of digital and auxiliary machinery manufactured by several companies. In addition to providing a friendly feature of customization, the company offers speedy and punctual after-sales service to its customers. The company has installed more than 140 digital printers in India, which together print around 20,000 sq mts an hour.

Over 35 machines of MS Italy are installed only in Mumbai, which together prints more than 1 lakh mts a day. These machines continue to print even today, and some factories have reached a print output level of 30,000 plus meters per day with adding up more machines.

To replace rotary and flat-bed machines, Orange O Tec markets Lario (with a capacity to print 50,000 mts a day) and Mini Lario (with a capacity to print 20,000 mts a day). Mini Lario installed in Mumbai in 2019 is currently working at a full capacity of 20,000 linear mts a day. These days, Mumbai textile printers are shifting from conventional to digital printing due to low start-up cost, more shades and sharpness in the output according to market demand, while also contributing to sustainability by saving water, no overlapping, and no limit of repeat size.

Orange, with Italy-based MS Printing Solutions, has products that meet requirements of small production to the highest capacity. The output capacity can be enhanced with the same brand and technology. Meanwhile, MS is continuously investing in R&D to give the best products in the future as well.

Established in 1983, MS Printing Solutions has a long family history now reaching its 4th generation, full of experience and passion. The company employs approximately 150 people at its two production sites in Italy. With more than 10 patents to its credit, the company has installed around 2,000 machines across the world. All digital printers marketed and distributed by Orange O Tec in India come with Kyocera heads, which are the best in the industry.

Orange O Tec analyses technical problems and their possible solutions with the customer, using digital, traditional or combined technologies. It then develops solutions for complete textile plants or turnkey plants, from design to final testing and staff formation.

The main digital printing solutions and inkjet machines are always available with Orange O Tec in a short time for delivery and installation. The company supplies either the single machine or the complete plant including all phases of the printing process, from preparation to packing.

Since its establishment in 2008, Orange O Tec has been participating in almost all textile-related exhibitions in India. The company is an exclusive Indian distributor of digital printers, inks, cutting machines, packaging software, and UV printers. With best in service, number of engineers and high level of ready inventory, Orange O Tec has in total 50% share in Indian high-speed printers (200 mts an hour) market.

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.
