Established in 2007 in Delhi’s electronics hub of Nehru Place, Megha Enterprises started a second branch in the digital printing space in the adjoining Okhla industrial area in 2023. The firm recently installed a digital printing press, the Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120, to add to its capabilities provided by a Canon ImagePRESS C10000VP.

A popular digital printing enterprise in the Okhla industrial belt, Megha Enterprises, armed with the Fujifilm Revoria, is now offering a broad range of sizes with excellent print quality for fine art, and media versatility while optimizing costs with its innovative ‘toner out’ model.

The Revoria Press PC1120 is an advanced toner digital press known for its unrivaled expressive power and its boundless spectrum of color possibilities. It features a state-of-the-art 6-color print engine and maintains its fast-printing speed of 120 ppm, even when using all 6 colors,” said Sri Prasad and Anuradha Dayal – proprietors of Megha Enterprises.

This machine is best suited for all kinds of commercial jobs, including books, photos, and commercial. It gives us the best ROI with its combination of machine life, additional colors, and a ‘toner out’ model. We can see that the market is growing for CMYK + color jobs, which enables more value to be offered in the market. Some of our existing vendors are very happy with the quality,” they added.

We were using 4-color machines earlier, so we decided to opt for the 10-color Fujifilm Revoria to add new capabilities to our printing business. The quality and advanced techniques made us consider this press,” Dayal said, explaining the decision to go for the Revoria.

With an output resolution of 2400 x 2400 dpi, the Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 produces prints that are crisp and intricately defined. This printing solution is devised with versatility features that support a wide range of media types and finishes accommodating various paperweights, sizes, and even banner sheets.

Noteworthy features include the ability to create metallic effects with gold and silver underlay,  access to pre-installed metallic colors, high-opacity white toner for printing on colored stocks, and AI-based photo quality optimization. It is equipped with a high-performance print server, allowing it to support a wide variety of paper stocks and providing convenient feeding and finishing options to streamline the printing process.

Koji Wada, managing director, Fujifilm India, stressed the importance of advanced technological integration in digital printing. “Fujifilm India is always at the forefront of integrating innovation and the latest advancements in the digital printing industry. We aim to provide printing machines that translate quality business to our customers. The Revoria PC 1120 is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to aid that goal for those who want to excel in the digital printing business.”

I am very happy to join the inauguration today. I am always happy to see new installations for the Fujifilm Revoria. This year, I hope to join many more inaugurations,” Wada added.

Ajay Agarwal, CEO of Insight Print Communications, distributor for Fujifilm India Graphic Communications Products, said, “The Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 is the only press that gives a very strong ROI for both the photo segment – where the volumes are less and the requirement is of very high quality, and in the commercial printing segment – where high volumes are required at a lower cost per print. It is also unique in its 10-color option that opens up a huge opportunity with media, designs and applications.”

Agarwal said the Fujifilm Revoria is a high ROI-positive machine for the commercial segment for three primary reasons. “One is the toner-out model, which reduces the cost of printing with lesser ink coverage. Second, it is one of the fastest machines available in the market with a speed of 120 ppm, which ensures the amount of jobs that a commercial printer can print is on the higher side. The life of the press in terms of print volume is also very high. Third, the machine works with multiple colors.

While most people operate with standard CMYK, we provide CMYK with white, varnish, pink, gold, silver and a special toner, which works wonderfully on textured paper. All put together, this machine adds a lot of value and slowly and steadily, it is becoming a darling for many commercial printers. It is being adopted by photo printers, who are doing very well with the machine with a very high ROI. The quality of the prints is equal to the best available in the market. In a very short period, the Fujifilm Revoria PC 1120 has created a space for itself. We are at 25 installations in a period of about one year and hopefully, by the end of this financial year, we should be in the range of 50 machines,” Agarwal said.

Priyatosh Kumar, head of the Graphic Communications Business, Fujifim India, said, “There is no doubt that the way digital printing has revolutionized visual communication over the years, the transformation has been rapid with the intervention of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence. The Revoria PC 1120 is one such game-changer in the industry, which is playing a pivotal role in this advancement. The press has certainly opened new avenues for creativity, handling various materials, and delivering exceptional quality. We are excited about this new install at Megha and wish him success.”

Fujifilm India’s Graphic Communications Division is steadfast to bring forth the best global technology, complemented with effective and prompt local assistance through its distributors Insight print Communications to provide superior technology in the constantly evolving world of graphic communications, the company said.

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.
