At the recent Media Expo exhibition in Greater Noida, ColorJet, a provider of digital printing solutions, launched the Roland AP-640 large format resin printer and ER-642 based on eco-solvent technology, in collaboration with Roland, another digital solutions provider. Both the machines were well received by the visitors at the exhibition.

Expressing his joy at the launch, Umang Singhal, vice-president of the signage business, said, “We planned this launch four months before the exhibition. This launch is both for the Indian and global markets. Essentially, two models of the machine were launched and they are both unique in their print quality and production capacity. The AP-640 is the first time Roland has ventured into resin-based technology.”

The customer can expect a good return on investment on these machines, Singh said. ”The Roland reliability, due to print quality and production capacity, enables our customers to sell their finished goods at a higher price. Colorjet has been participating at the Media Expo since its first edition. Moreover, we have had several launches at this exhibition. The incredible footfall we get at this exhibition in particular has been fruitful for us.”

Colorjet and Roland are both looking forward to several sales inquiries following the launch of their new presses. 

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.
