Earlier this month I reported on Epson’s latest printhead, the D3000 A1R, and now Global Inkjet Systems has announced that it has developed drive electronics and software to support this head. The 1200 npi D3000-A1R is the first Epson printhead to offer ink recirculation around the back of the nozzle.

This support comes in the form of  the HMB-SE-D3000 Head Manager Board, which can drive up to two of the Epson D3000-A1R printheads per board. It includes print data management, greyscale waveform control and printhead diagnostics, which can all be accessed over Ethernet.

The D3000 is Epson’s first printhead to offer nozzle level ink recirculation and so GIS is also offering its proven recirculating ink delivery modules. In addition, GIS also supplies its Atlas software, which includes a range of different capabilities.

Nick Geddes, CEO of GIS, commented, “With launch partners already lined up, GIS is pleased to be in a position to offer OEMs and system integrators support for the Epson D3000, and we invite other interested system builders to contact us to discuss their plans for using this printhead.”

GIS has also said that it will offer support for more Epson heads later this year. You can find further information from globalinkjetsystems.com.

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.
