The new-generation Prinect Image Control 4 for optimum quality assurance in label and packaging printing.

The Power of Color is the slogan with which Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has chosen to mark the start of its new financial year as it introduces extensive additions for its color measurement and control systems and for the prinect color workflow. The move is a response to the growing demands for efficient and dependable quality control in commercial, packaging, and label printing. In prinect easy control, prinect axis control, prinect image control, and prinect inpress control, Heidelberg offers the market four spectral measurement systems for print shops of all sizes and sheetfed offset presses of all performance classes.

End-to-end spectral measurement, patented color control, and a further enhanced prinect color workflow facilitate rapid, low-waste job changes, as well as quality monitoring and logging for production, runs on all Speedmaster presses. Color control based on measured spectral values is the most promising method for achieving the desired colors as quickly as possible in a commercial, label, and packaging printing. That is precisely why Heidelberg has continuously developed spectral color measurement technology.

“The consistent development of the entire Heidelberg spectral color measurement portfolio gives commercial and packaging print shops of all sizes the opportunity to optimize their color workflow, moving it closer to the smart print shop model – even as far as autonomous printing,” explains Jürgen Mittmann, senior manager Product Management Sheetfed at Heidelberg.

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.
