Monotech Systems has integrated a second JETSCI YAQ high-speed inkjet imprinting solution on a narrow web offset printing machine for printing security documents at a leading press in Dhaka in Bangladesh. Increased job orders from educational institutions (OMR Sheets) have pushed the customer to opt for an additional system.

The installation of the first JETSCI inkjet imprinting system in Bangladesh in 2018, opened new business avenues for customers in the secure educational document segment. This installation makes it three such systems working in Bangladesh. The JETSCI industrial inkjet systems have more than 250 installations across the globe.

Neeraj Thappa, assistant vice president of International Sales at Monotech Systems, said, “This is our second YAQ industrial high-speed inkjet system installation in Bangladesh and it has a unique print width of 324 mm. Due to our print system being modular and versatile, we were able to build this large print-system needed by the customer. This large print system runs on the proven software developed by the Jetsci team and is able to carry out all kinds of jobs required by the user.”

JETSCI products are solely represented in Bangladesh by Printech Corporation Limited. Marvin Sardar the managing director of Printech Corporation, adds, “Our customer was content with the performance and durability of his existing YAQ system. He successfully executed all his jobs with his first YAQ system and when it was time for him to expand his printing capability, Jetsci Inkjet Imprinting was the only option in his list. In addition to the performance of the existing YAQ system, the ability to provide a 324 mm print width was the other factor that helped secure the repeat order — which is again a first in Bangladesh. This unique size in combination with the speed of YAQ will more than double the user’s production and keep him ahead in the race.”

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.
