Innova Printing and Packaging is Bangalore-based leading mono and fluted carton manufacturer with over three decades of experience. Their facility is spread over 45,000 square feet with innovative solutions, process, and technology. Innova bolsters production with the addition of Kodak Veriset T800 Platesetter in its production facility. 

The Kodak Veriset T800 Platesetter offers reliable plate making of up to 22- 8 page plates per hour at throughput of 2400 dpi. This delivers the stability and reliability of Kodak’s thermal CTP technology at an exceptional value. The Veriset Platesetter is compatible with a wide range of thermal plates. This robust external-drum thermal CTP device has been specifically designed for the demanding needs of general commercial, publication, and packaging printers. With a compact design, it also minimizes the space requirements. 

“At Innova, we believe in providing the best quality on given time to our customers and we are glad to choose Veriset as our prepress solution since it meets all our demands. It is equipped with TH5 head and that was the ice breaker for us which images a more precise, accurate dot leading to higher tonal stability and exposure uniformity helping us to produce superior quality products,” says Akash Pabbi,one of the directors at Innova Printing and Packaging. 

“Sustainability is something deep-rooted in our system and when we got to know that Veriset platesetter has a cooling system that reduces power consumption to only 380 watts while imaging, saving up to 95% power compared to other CTP devices that was the hook for us. And the added advantage is that it doesn’t require additional power for the debris removal system,” adds Akshay Sai, managing director at Innova Printing and Packaging. 

Stringent quality-controlled production practices and ISO 9001-2015 certification for quality in production states the commitment of Innova Printing and Packaging.

Kodak’s New Lens Contamination Avoidance (LCA) technology enables compatibility with low to medium debris generating plates offering maximum plate compatibility. This is quite impressive for us since it reduces plate costs without needing to add a debris removal system,” comments Vijay Vardhan Pabbi, managing director at Innova Printing and Packaging.  

 ‘The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. This quote goes well with the founders of Innova Print and Packaging said Manish Aggarwal GM Sales South at Insight Print Communication. He further adds, “When I met these three youngsters in the last Printpack they were just starting and I have seen them innovating and growing within these 2 years. It is inspiring and now we are happy to contribute to their future journey.”  

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.
