A commercial printing center at Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh, Roheetth Printers aims at quality printing with the successive back-to-back installations of two Ricoh Pro digital production presses. Both the machines have been provided by Monotech Systems.

Appa Rao Puppala, proprietor of Roheetth Printers, says, “A month after installing the Ricoh Pro C7200x digital color production press, we installed another Ricoh Pro 8320S monochrome digital production press. The second press was specially added for printing larger volumes of black and white documents, the inside pages of on-demand books, and many other applications.”

“We had been using a Konica Minolta AcurioPress for some time and now we got two Ricoh Pros. The two new digital production presses have accelerated us and empowered us to provide the exact print quality and texture that our customers want. In fact, these two machines have helped iin maintaining print quality and delivery deadlines like never before.”

Incepted in the year 2001, Roheetth Printers has been a provider of creative and end-to-end graphic solutions for its customers. “Keeping in mind the changing market trends and growing needs in business, it was essential for us to upgrade with some advanced digital production presses,” says Puppala.  

He continues, “Productivity was paramount for us but versatility, sustainability and reliability were also keys for us. That’s why we chose the Ricoh Pro digital production presses that tick all the boxes for us.” For high-quality color printouts, the Ricoh Pro C7200x is an ideal machine for producing graphics in the resolution of 2400×4800 dpi. It can print on a broad range of heavyweight and lightweight media up to 360 gsm at the speed of 85 ppm (pages per minute). 

The Ricoh Pro 8320S is empowering Roheetth Printers to pull off crispy black and white prints at 136 ppm (pages per minute). Like the Pro C7200x, this press can deliver prints in the resolution of 2400×4800 dpi. “With these two Ricoh Pros in our production facility, and backed by our team of more than a dozen printing professionals, we are now capable of fulfilling what our customers want,” says Puppala. 

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.
