Monotech Systems has installed Ricoh Pro C7200X digital print production press at Ludhiana-based digital and commercial printing house Shiva Print Bazaar. It is jointly established a decade ago by Vinay Kumar Garg and Sonu Garg.

Vinay Garg, proprietor, Shiva Print Bazaar said, “We are already using five Xerox and Konica Minolta presses but they aren’t able to meet the expectations. By installing the Ricoh Pro C7200X digital press we have received superior engine, machine speed, color re-production, 5th color capability, and color consistency.” 

“I look after the sales and marketing of the business while operations are being handled by my brother. Ricoh offers its customers the best printing technology with print enhancement. The new digital press will help offer quality printing, heavy production, and variable color options. With this new investment, the company is expecting to grow phenomenally year on year,” he added.

“There has been a remarkable increase in the demand for Ricoh and 5th color in Punjab. Shiva Print Bazaar is another feather in the cap of Monotech Systems. With the Ricoh C7200X, the digital production press company will be able to offer fast production and good printing quality and embellishments with a big print volume,” Surendra Halsi, regional manager, Digital Products and Solutions, Monotech Systems, said.

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 the printer go beyond CMYK to produce unique, compelling materials that can command premium prices. Advanced workflows and performance-enhancing capabilities are claimed to help printers fulfill demanding deadlines while keeping operational costs low.

The Efi Fiery Command WorkStation user interface is said to enable precise control of jobs, color management, image quality, VDP, and output devices. It helps move jobs through production quickly with exceptional RIP speed and native PDF workflows.

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.
