Verico Technology LLC has successfully launched the latest plate in the Zahara family, the Zahara Elite waterless plate. These plates are available in most sizes and gauges for waterless newspaper, sheetfed, narrow web label, security printing and CD / DVD applications.

Elite is a drop-in product to the existing Zahara CTP settings and will not require any adjustments in exposures. The Zahara Elite is a 100% chemical free process plate using simply water for cleanout. No hazardous chemicals or dyes to maintain or dispose. Just expose, rinse and print.

Benefits of the Verico Zahara Elite waterless plate includes increased sensitivity in the CtP system which enables higher throughput with wider exposure latitude; durable on any substrate with increased scratch resistance; reproduction of finer screens with consistent durability; solids and fast ink roll up, excellent compatibility with UV Inks and increased solvent resistance; video microscopically measurability; and drop-in the existing processing equipment.

As the remaining stock of Zahara XP products are depleted, Verico Technology will automatically ship Zahara Elite plates to fill customer orders. Customers will notice the new labeling on the package that will distinguish Zahara Elite plates. Immediate upgrades available on request.

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.
