Bansal said, “After the pandemic situation, we are very excited to be here at the exhibition. The visitor footfall is enormous, and we can find genuine buyers with a smiling face.” He showed us and spoke about the machines displayed, the Vulcan Prime 1.6 meter wide UV roll-to-roll printer and the SoniQ HQ Plus 3.2 meter wide ultra-high quality eco-solvent printer using the printhead of Konica Minolta and Ricoh.

Colorjet’s USP for digital printers

The USP of the Vulcan Prime and SoniQ HQ Plus printers is that they are dual-use devices for producing output for the signage and interior design industries. They can print at up to 2,400 dpi resolution with UV inks and curing to ensure immediate drying and snipping production time. Camouflage printing technology for next-generation signage was developed using a combination of ColorJet UV printing machines with advanced print head technology, UV curable inks, and a unique printer controller software.

The SoniQ HQ Plus eco-solvent printer is claimed by Colorjet to be an excellent blend for indoor and outdoor signage output solutions. It works at high speed of 915 square feet an hour and supports a 4-color CMYK option. It is also an excellent solution for a large variety of eco-solvent applications, including canvas, fabric, PVC banners, self-adhesive vinyl and window films.

As Colorjet has been in the wide format industry for the past 25 years and manufacturing digital printers for a long time, its machines are precision engineered and rugged so that they can last for ten years. With the used of color management the color output of the company’s printers has a large color gamut and generally shows good images with photo-realism. The company is planning to expand its range of printers for extending its applications and to build more printers with higher speeds and in a larger choice of sizes.

Bansal concluded our conversation by giving a message to the show visitors, “This is the right time for the industry to open up. As many changes have taken place due to the pandemic situation, the business owners are planning to be a part of the economic recovery by examining the technological advancements on show and to align their investments with future business prospects as the economy recovers.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
