Monotech Systems has installed Ricoh Pro C5300S digital press in New Delhi’s photo color lab SSV Digital. This is the first installation of Ricoh in the color lab segment.

Rupendra Thakur of SSV Digital said, “We have been in the business for the last 8 years and grown successfully in photography. A digital press was a good opportunity to upgrade from our existing traditional photo printers and there we opted for Ricoh.”

On the reason the company decided to invest in a digital press, Thakur said, “Before proceeding, we compared the print of Ricoh and Konica Minolta and found the Ricoh print quality to be superior to KM. The album printed from the Ricoh Pro C5300S is different in quality which is vouched, acknowledged, and complimented by our customers. 

“The advantages of the Ricoh Pro C5300S digital press include machine speed, color re-production, vibrant hues, and consistency. The color productions are exceeding expectations and it can print a wide range of colors producing realistic photo prints.”

Thakur is also delighted with the after-sales support from Monotech Systems

Built as a right-sized solution, the Ricoh Pro C5300s digital production press is claimed to offer a fusion of vibrant color, agile media handling, and a wide range of finishing options. With superior reliability, accurate registration, and intuitive controls, the press is said to be ideal for marketing agencies, in-plants, commercial printers, and franchise/pay-for-print environments looking for a total package — in a compact footprint

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.
