Monotech Systems, a leading player in the digital printing landscape, showcased Ricoh’s latest digital production presses, the Pro C7500 and Pro C9500, at the recently concluded Consumer Electronic Imaging Fair (CEIF) 2024 held in Mumbai’s Jio World Convention Centre (CEIF) from January 11-13. Additionally, Monotech demonstrated PixelGlow, India’s inaugural digital UV and foiling system, an in-house innovation by Monotech.

The Pro C7500, a standout in Ricoh’s repertoire, introduces a groundbreaking feature by enabling printing in pink, thereby expanding the color spectrum possibilities. Noteworthy is the resolution capability of 2400 x 4800 dpi.

TP Jain, owner of Monotech, talked about the versatility of these presses, addressing both the photo print and commercial print segments.

With the Ricoh C7500 and C9500, we are addressing both the photo print segment and the commercial print segment. Some of our customers are using these presses for both these applications very successfully. Talking specifically of C7500 from the point of view of photo printing, with the addition of pink, our customers can produce the best possible output,” he said.

PixelGlow, Monotech’s digital UV and foiling system, made its mark at CEIF 2024, garnering significant attention. Jain expressed his satisfaction with the market response, “We have managed to install a good number of PixelGlow systems in the Indian market. The response to our product has been very good, with close to 15 PixelGlow machines expected to be installed, including four units soon.”

Reflecting on CEIF 2024, Jain acknowledged the positive footfall but noted it fell slightly below expectations. “While there was anticipation for visitors from across the country, the majority hailed from the western region. Despite this, the event provided a platform for Monotech Systems to show cutting-edge innovations, fostering engagement and awareness within the industry,” he 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.
