At the 50th MediaExpo, held from 2 – 4 March at the Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai, Ahmedabad-based Lisco launched its range of printers – the ZF1808D hybrid UV, AC1602S high-speed eco-solvent printer, the AQ1804S high-speed eco-solvent, AC1802UV entry-level UV roll-to-roll and the C3202SG Plus star fire solvent cover body economy printer.

The AQ1804S high-speed eco-solvent printer uses four Epson i3200 print heads along with GZ variable dot technology for flawless printing of images. The AC1802UV entry-level UV roll-to-roll printer is equipped with an Epson i3200 print head with PrecisionCore MicroTFP technology and water-cooling LED UV lamps. The C3202SG Plus star fire solvent cover body economy printer is equipped with a Dimatix Starfire 1024 print head with a smart IR dryer.

Yatinsinh Vaghela, managing director at Lisco told Indian Printer & Publisher, “This Media Expo has been wonderful for us. We have been participating in it for the past many years but have seen the growth after the Covid-19 pandemic. Media Expo has captured the Indian market. We call it a national show. We grow after each and every Media Expo exhibition. The response to the new launches had been very good.”

After the Covid-19 pandemic, the signage industry in India is growing very quickly, he said. “The entire market will shift to green UV textiles. We have some upcoming new technologies for textiles and UV products, which we will launch at the Delhi Media Expo,” he added.

Lisco has installed almost more than 300 units across the Indian subcontinent since it started out in 2018. According to Vaghela, UV, multi-layer printing, two-layer, three-layer, and day-night effect printing will be the upcoming trends in outdoor and indoor signage.

Our plan is to add more and more new technologies, and new products from different regions and countries, and expand our existing network. We have almost reached each state of India,” he concluded.

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.
