Kejie Digital, a Lingfeng brand from Shanghai, China, took part in the Media Expo 2022 to present its fast-growing wide-format digital print technology. Taking part in the Media Expo for the first time, It was represented by its India head Rajiv Bhardwaj, an industry veteran who introduced the Essdee Nutek machines in India in 2000.

At the Media Expo, Kejie showed the K10 and K20 wide format digital inkjet printers. The K10 is a powerful high-speed solvent inkjet printer that outputs at a speed of approximately 2040 square feet an hour and is suitable for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications. The K20 outputs at a speed of approximately 2,475 square feet and is aimed at similar applications.

Rajiv Bhardwaj, the company’s Indian representative, Kejie Digital, said, “Here, at Media Expo, it’s a good chance to introduce our Industrial approach to the market, and print houses have appreciated the quality of our product with its features including its precise heavy-duty mechanical structure, and the factory updated inkjet array that delivers good quality ink at a reasonable price with transparency in costs. The response that we have received till now is good. We have made five bookings of our printers during the show, and many prospects are there who will purchase the machine after the approvals of their bank loans.”

Kejie Digital focuses on eco-solvent UV digital printing, claimed to be highly ink efficient and viable in its techno-commercial aspects. It is planning to add more products to its portfolio, including Eco-Solvent printers having up to four Epson – i3200 heads and solvent printers using Fujifilm SF1024 print heads. It is also planning to manufacture UV roll-to-roll and flatbed printers using Ricoh Gen6/5 and i3200 using inkjet heads with Euro Standard inks. 

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.
