Mumbai-based Technova Imaging Systems launched the Jwei CB03II-2516-RM DCT flatbed cutting device at the MediaExpo Delhi event held from 14 – 16 September at the India Expo Center in Greater Noida. The Chinese-manufactured device is designed for cutting POP display advertising and corrugated boards and is backed and supported by Technova.

Technova has an experience of more than 52 years in the signage industry and is a supplier to all segments of the printing and packaging industry, including offset plates, chemicals, digital media, software, and digital presses, said Sameer Shah, manager – regional sales, Digital & Offset Print Solutions at Technova. The company is also currently planning to enter into the labels segment with a label-cutting device from Jwei.

The Jwei CB03II-2516-RM DCT comes with optical registration with a CCD camera, Shah said, adding it can read all registration marks from the top end and will do the cutting accordingly. In addition, Technova also sells another high-end cutting table of which Shah said, “We have a particularly high-end device in this digital cutting table – the Jwei TB08II-3121-PM. It’s a high-production device where you can cater to the indoor and outdoor signage business along with the textile market.”

Technova which has also tied up with Konica Minolta for its digital presses, launched the Accuriopress C12000 color press at the MediaExpo. The machine has a speed of 120 sheets per minute, Shah told Indian Printer & Publisher.

Speaking about MediaExpo, he said, “Overall, the footfall was good and we got a good response. We are expecting 2-3 deals in the coming quarter. The signage industry in India is growing day by day. Now, there are more short runs. The providers are also looking at post-press equipment. They have flatbed UV machines and other signage business equipment for printing indoor and outdoor signage. They now want finishing equipment and are opting for automation because of labor issues.”

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.
