In a first-ever virtual opportunity, Tecnau and HP will showcase leading-edge end-to-end digital printing solutions at Tecnau’s live virtual event, “Spring Forward with Tecnau,” taking place on 3 June. Registration is now open (click here)!

HP will present the latest innovations in continuous feed inkjet printing, coming to us live with a demonstration of the HP PageWide Web Press T250 HD with HP Brilliant Ink for ultimate inkjet performance. The HP PageWide Web Press T250 HD is the first press featuring HP Brilliant Ink, offering a broader, more vivid color gamut plus printing direct to offset coated media, making it perfect for publishing, direct mail, transactional and more.

Tecnau will demonstrate various continuous feed and cutsheet production finishing solutions from the TEC, highlighted by the award-winning Revolution 50 series for continuous roll to cut & stack available for PageWide presses. Tecnau’s ultimate productivity solution, the Zero Speed Splicer Roll 40, will also be shown, along with the market-leading TC 1550 HS Dynamic Perforator. On the sheetfed side, Tecnau’s Stack 1212 for finishing B2 sheets will be featured.

What makes this a unique “can’t miss” event is that Tecnau will be finishing the same PageWide applications that HP will be running at their Graphics Experience Center (GEC), providing a virtual demonstration of exactly how this work would run in a production environment.

The joint HP and Tecnau event will be live-streamed from the Tecnau Experience Center (TEC) in Italy and the HP GEC in Barcelona, Spain. The session will last 90 minutes.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
