We asked about the company’s experience at the exhibition, the first after the Covid-19 pandemic and about the technology-driven printers displayed at its stand.
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.

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.

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.
