Gyan Digital Graphic, an Agra-based pre-press bureau, has added a brand-new G Series Cron UV CtP to its fleet. The CtP was supplied and installed by Monotech Systems Limited, established in 2007. Gyan Digital came into the printing business from another business segment and started from scratch. They were one of the first few bureau houses that invested in the CtP machine at that point of time when most of the market was not aware of what this device was. They bought the first basysPrint CtP system, which is still in production, and this started their growth pattern. The company acts as a one-stop destination servicing more than 100 customers from Agra and other Uttar Pradesh parts. 

Gyan Digital on fulfilling its printing demand with CtP machine

Gyanendra Kumar Gautam, Founder, and Vikas Gautam, Partner, Gyan Digital, said, “We installed the new machine in March intending to serve more customers as the demand for daily printing plates production had gone up. Since we have a huge customer base, our plate production is approximately 1,000 plates per day.”

Before the Cron was added, the company’s existing basysPrint CtP used to run for 24-hours. “The Cron has brought the load down. The quality and the performance of the Cron is very good, and it justifies our investment,” he added.

The G series UVP CtP plate setters provide the perfect answer to print flexibility. The next-generation laser platform combined with liquid-cooling technology ensures enhanced consistency, ease of use, and serviceability. Together with patented plate handling technology, the G series models offer maximum reliability with fast throughput.

Gyanendra said, “the company has a strong transportation network, and that’s the reason it can connect more customers in a wider geography. “It also boosts our confidence as the support from the Monotech Systems is strong. They are the reason we are in the printing business as our first machine, the basysPrint, was bought from them. It’s been almost 15 years since we are cherishing our business relationship,” he said.”

A team of 28 people works in Gyan Digital’s facility spanning 750 square yards.


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.
