Delhi’s leading commercial printer Nikhil Offset has invested in a Kodak Achieve 800 Thermal Platesetter that produces 18 plates in an hour of 1030 x 838 mm. The machine has been supplied and installed by Monotech Systems

“The majority of jobs we provide are for publishing and consuming approximately 1,500 – 2,000 plates a month. To fulfil the high demand, we opted for Kodak Achieve Platesetter, which is productive and has a process-free operation,” said Naresh Kumar Sirpaul, director, Nikhil Offset. 

“The Kodak Achieve offers a process less technology which contributes to the sustainability, and hence it was the first choice. Sustainability and climate protection are increasingly prominent in all aspects of life, and not even the Covid-19 pandemic has pushed them off the agenda. In recent years, reducing environmental impact has become a much more important factor in every economic sector. We printers are no exception, not only because of the increasingly stringent environmental standards that the industry must meet. Sustainability is also high on the list of priorities for printers’ customers and consumers. Not surprisingly, the prospects of success are better for businesses that opt for sustainable processes. Monotech Systems has good after-sales support, and they already have a good reputation in the market. Interacting with the team and their services has been a wonderful experience,” he added.

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.
