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. 

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.
