Arrow Digital recently installed an Efi VUTEk GS3250LX Pro with 10-color UltraDrop technology at Wonder Images, Kolkata. The UltraDrop technology from Efi is said to provide good quality, extra crispness, and ultra capabilities, and has native 7pL print heads with true multidrop addressability in each dot position. The high apparent resolution and high-definition quality with four-level greyscale and two ink density levels give smoothness in shadows, gradients, and transitions.

This cost-effective printer comes with both rigid and roll-fed printing capabilities along with white ink multilayer printing in a single pass. Amit Murarka, director at Wonder Images, said he opted for the Efi technology to meet the growing demand for point-of-purchase displays, unique media displays, and other premium graphics applications.

Murarka said, “This new installation helped us gain premium jobs from existing customers as well as from new clients. We have been associated with Arrow from the times of the Efi solvent printer and trust them to the fullest. We have seen many successful installations from Arrow, which gave us the confidence to go for an Efi UV LED hybrid printer. The new printer can produce rigid and roll media printing and provide faster throughput with excellent quality.”

Sam Patel, CEO and MD of Arrow Digital, said, “Wonder Images has been with us for years. The Efi VUTEk GS3250LX Pro will give them the confidence to address all the brands and their upcoming campaigns. The 3.2-meter hybrid printer is versatile, efficient, cost-effective, and environment-friendly and has the advanced UltraDrop technology.” 

The GS3250Lx Pro can handle eight colors and has two white ink channel multilayer printing capabilities with greyscale technology that allows users to do multiple applications. LED technology is an essential part of this printer as the low curing technology gives the operator the confidence to work on many substrates with no distortion, as well as save energy. 

Murarka said using the Efi VUTEk GS3250lx Pro printer has been a dream come true, adding that they will have to generate many new opportunities with the VUTEk.

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.
