Arrow Digital showcased the Efi Pro 32r+ and Canon Colorado 1650 roll-to-roll inkjet signage printers at the Media Expo New Delhi held from 1 – 3 September 2022 at the India Expo Center, Greater Noida in the Delhi-NCR. 

Prakash Chopra, senior vice-president, sales, Arrow Digital said to Indian Printer & Publisher, “We have displayed the Efi 32r+, which is a roll-to-roll UV printer. For the first time, we are launching the Canon inkjet printer at Media Expo. It is again a UV gel roll-to roll 5-feet printer. It has several special features such as high speed and FLXfinish+, which is a combination of glass and matt finish that can be achieved in one go without using varnish. This unique point of the Canon inkjet printer is really creating a buzz in the show. Everybody’s amazed to see this printer.”

The company received a number of business visitors at its stall and Chopra emphasized that filtered visitors are coming. “People are switching to new technologies such as UV and UV gel and solvent is declining. People have to eliminate solvent printing because of the hazards to the environment and people. The signage industry in India is now going up, the business is also good. We are also able to sell a number of printers. Business is back on the track and it is booming. The future is very bright unless Corona happens again,” he said.

Sustainability is a key focus area for Arrow Digital. Chopra stated, “Arrow Digital is promoting all of the technologies that are sustainable. For the last seven or eight years, we are not selling any solvent or eco-solvent machines. We are always selling sustainable technology. At Arrow, everything is sustainable whether it is the narrow web, label printing, or packaging printing machines that we have developed indigenously.”

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.
