Nippon Color is showcasing the latest spot UV AccurioShine 3600, a 14-inch digital offline embellishment solution at PrintPack India Hall 9D Stand H21. This solution aligns with the printing and packaging industry trends that require value-addition at an affordable cost.

The AccurioShine 3600’s artificial intelligence and smartscanner (AIS) makes it superior to similar machines from competitors according to Nippon Color. It creates various glossy effects on a variety of substrates, stocks, and media with a single varnish mix. Plastics, synthetics, and cartons weighing between 135 and 450 gsm are embellished easily with 2D and 3D gloss finishes on paper. Offset and digital inks, lamination films, and aqueous coatings can all be used to coat printed items. The solutions seems to be extremely useful for a wide variety of applications from commercial print to publishing, stickers, packaging, and others.

“We have collaborated with Konica Minolta to provide industrial printing solutions, such as the AccurioShine series for spot UV and foiling and the AccurioJet KM-1e, a B2+ sheetfed UV inkjet system that gives print professionals endless options. JD Graphics in Lower Parel, Mumbai, already has a JetVarnish 3D One and AccurioShine 101 installed by Nippon Color,” said Akshat Pardiwala, chief operating officer at Nippon Color.

The AIS is swiftly impacting the industry in terms of digital printing and finishing. Artificial intelligence is used by the technology to establish an automated varnish registration over the preprinted sheet, cutting setup time by more than 80% and eliminating make-ready waste. Any errors caused in the original offset or digital print processes, such as sheet and image skew, shift, stretch, or contraction, are corrected and adjusted by the AIS without human intervention.

“For our newest product, we’re getting a lot of enquiries. Customers understand the value of digital decoration and how it can help them distinguish their prints from a simple CMYK print to spectacular raised UV print with foiling,” concludes Pardiwala. 

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.
