At the 15th Printpack India, The Printers House (TPH) known for its single-width Orient web offset presses installed in approximately fifty countries, talked about a number of new initiatives that it has taken in the recent past. The company has launched a new web offset press, and a new consumables division. In addition, it will soon unveil its new webfed inline flexo press.

Kohli began by talking about the inline flexo press that has been under development for the last two years and is now getting ready to be launched. “This project was two years in the making. We have tied up with an Italian designer. What we are launching is an online flexo press that can print on film. We will officially launch this press around August or September this year. It will be affordable for a large majority of the market and will target packaging printers who are currently using gravure technology. Soon after that, we will launch our label press and then a wide width press for the sheet fed market,” Kohli said.

Compact and affordable web offset press

TPH has also launched a new web offset press that is compact in size and affordable. “Innovative and compact, this press is different from other web offset presses. It is a line contact system. And we have already got orders for a couple of units. With this press, customers can reduce operating expenses by 15% compared with their existing presses. Its’ compact size helps them save space and it is very affordable,” Kohli said.

The company has recently set up its consumables division that supplies plates, chemicals, and blankets. “This division was launched just a couple of months ago and is doing very well,” he said.

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.
