On 21 August 2020, Epson America, announced a new 76-inch wide SureColor F10070 industrial dye-sub textile printer. This new 76-inch industrial-level dye-sublimation solution offers reliability, versatility and round-the-clock productivity at what is claimed by the company to be ‘a low total cost of ownership.’ Engineered to meet the textile industry’s evolving needs, it features four 4.7-inch PrecisionCore printheads and a new hot-swappable ink system.

The F10070 delivers continuous roll-to-roll performance at production speeds up to 2,700 square feet an hour or approximately 250.8 square meters an hour. This is about four times the speed of the 44-inch wide SC-F6270 printer that Epson sells in India and runs at 63.4 meters an hour.

A solution for textile print shops looking to fulfill large orders, the F10070 produces high-quality, bright textiles for fashion, sports apparel, home décor, and soft signage. The SureColor F10070 comes equipped with an array of industrial-level features for productivity and continuous production. The new user-replaceable 4.7-inch PrecisionCore printheads deliver high-productivity with extreme drop placement accuracy for sharp detail, bright colors, and outstanding print quality.

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.
