Monotech Systems, a leading machine manufacturer for the printing and packaging industry, has installed a new Ricoh Pro C7200X digital production press at Fine Digital Prints, a commercial printing corner in Hyderabad, Telangana. 

JC Krishna Reddy Panyala, managing partner of Fine Digital Prints, said the adoption of the new Ricoh digital press has empowered them to progress into innovative graphics with a new color gamut beyond CMYK.

Since its inception in 2008, Fine Digital Prints has been a well-known commercial printing corner engaging in the production of high-end commercial graphic prints as well as graphic designing jobs, the company said.

“We work for customers from varied market segments, diverse walks of life, and different cities and towns of India,” said Reddy, adding, “Though we are based in Hyderabad, almost 90% of our customers are from neighboring and far-flung cities and towns.”

Fine Digital Prints keeps on upgrading its production setup by installing new and modern machines with the Ricoh Pro C7200X being the latest addition to the portfolio. Reddy says the new Ricoh digital press is a ‘workhorse’ on which they are galloping to discover an innovative range of new applications and colors beyond CMYK. 

“We have been working for big corporate brands, which I don’t want to name right now, from every nook and corner of the country. Our customers are quality-conscious people who come to us for out-of-the-box graphic ideas and applications. To meet their demands and expectations, we need to get equipped with high-end machines such as the Ricoh Pro C7200X, which has advanced features,” he says. 

Apart from the Ricoh Pro C7200X, the production facility has other digital presses such as the Xerox Versant 180 and Xerox B9100, backed by a strong team of 12 printing and graphic designing professionals. “Our new Ricoh Pro C7200X has the versatility to explore a new color gamut comprising ‘white ink’ and the use of a range of unconventional printing media like Tyvek and others,” Reddy says.      

The Ricoh can take up media up to 360 gsm and run at speeds up to 85 ppm (pages per minute) in a banner sheet duplex printing mode. “We are planning to change the game of commercial printing to another level using the fifth color station of our new Pro C7200X. We have set a target of six months down the line to utilize its prowess,” Reddy says. 

Reddy says Fine Digital Prints has established a firm foothold in the commercial printing arena with a vast customer base. “We are proud to be able to maintain a vast pan-India customer base, which continues to expand day by day,” he says.  

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.
