Monotech Systems has installed Ahmedabad’s first Ricoh Pro C7200X digital print production press at Ahmedabad-based digital and commercial printing house, Shree Paras Printers. The company is run by Nitin Shah and his son Harsh Shah.

The difference between four-color digital printing and special color digital printing with the latest print technology was cited as the reason for the Ricoh digital press installation by the father-son duo.

Started in 1991, Shree Paras Printers has a total of 2,700 square feet area for digital printing. The printshop already has a Xerox Versant 180, a Konica Minolta C3070, and a Konica 6120 B/W production printer along with all types of post-press equipment.

According to Shah, the USP of the company is the printing technology with print enhancement offered by Ricoh for end-users. He added that the new Ricoh digital press will help offer quality printing, heavy production, and variable color options.

Also, with the Ricoh C7200X digital production press, the company claims to offer fast production and good printing quality and embellishments with a big print volume. With this new investment, the company is expecting to grow 25 to 30% year on year.

Ricoh Pro C7200X Graphic Arts Edition offers both MFP and printer models that are said to deliver superb image quality, oversize print options, and diverse media choices. The 5th Color Station lets you go beyond CMYK to produce unique, compelling materials that can command premium prices. Advanced workflows and performance-enhancing capabilities are said to help printers fulfil demanding deadlines while keeping operational costs low.

The EFI Fiery Command WorkStation user interface is claimed by Ricoh to enable precise control of jobs, color management, image quality, VDP, and output devices. 

“There was a demand for a right fit product in the market that offers special colors,” says Shah. This is the first installation of the Ricoh Pro C7200X in Ahmedabad.

“Paras Printers has been an esteemed customer for us and we cherish this relationship which has continued for many years. We hope that the Ricoh Pro C7200X is going to bring more avenues for them,” says Ajeet Pareek, business head – digital products and solutions, Monotech Systems.

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.
