Meerut-based publishing firm Arihant Publications has bought a Jetsci KnowzzleJet-DL high-speed monochrome inkjet web press from Monotech. The deal was announced during the 15th Printpack India.

The Jetsci KnowzzleJet inkjet web press is powered by the Memjet printhead technology and provides resolutions of up to 1600 x 1600 dpi with the ability to print small sized type such as a 1 pt micro text font and very high-quality grayscale images. It is claimed to effortlessly handle a diverse range of print jobs with variable page sizes and counts. Products such as teaching materials, study resources, manuals, reissues, and reprints with variable data printing seem ideal for its capabilities.

Tej Prakash Jain, managing director, Monotech Systems, said that the company was extremely pleased to be associated with Arihant. The company has been associated with Arihant as a supplier for almost eight years.

Tejinder Singh, business head – print and packaging solutions, Monotech Systems said, “We are thankful to Parvesh Jain for his continued trust in us. The KnowzzleJet would be a game changer in his book publishing business and would lead to greater productivity and efficiency. It has been our pleasure associating with such a brand in the publishing industry.”

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.
