Samples printed on the Fujifilm wide format presses on display at Print4All exhibition in Milan

At Print4All, Fujifilm showed the Revoria Press PC1120 digital toner press. The PC1120, which was launched in September 2021 to selected territories, boasts production speeds of 120 pages per minute with superb, high-definition quality, as well as a unique combination of feeding and finishing options to provide superb flexibility. Around the same time, the Revoria PC1120 in its 6-color configuration was launched in India, although the formal launch took place in December 2021. The PC1120 has a wide range of colors and enhancements, with a single-pass, 6-colour print engine enabling up to two special toners such as gold, silver, clear, white, or pink to be used in addition to CMYK.

The Acuity Prime wide format printer launched in mid-2021 has maximum print speeds of 150 square meters an hour and a printable area of 2.54 x 1.27 meters. It can print on media up to a thickness of 51mm and is available in CMYK formats with white, additional clear, and jettable primer options. It also features a high-quality LED curing system that is air-cooled, meaning there is no requirement for an expensive water-cooling system. Fujifilm demonstrated the machine running at the show for printing fashion and cosmetic posters and indoor signage.

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.
