At the recently concluded Pamex 2024 expo in Mumbai, leading binding solutions provider Bindwel showcased its sub-brand Sigloch, designed for the digital book-binding market. The event saw the unveiling of two machines – the Sigloch 500 and the newly launched Sigloch 150.

Sigloch, a part of Bindwel’s commitment to delivering superior book-binding solutions, is positioned as a cost-effective alternative for the digital book-binding market. Pallippuram Sajith, managing director of Bindwel-Stelda, emphasized Sigloch’s capabilities, stating, “Sigloch provides quality book-binding solutions for the digital book-binding market. It provides everything that our big machines provide. Sigloch solutions are extremely cost-effective. Our target market includes digital print bureaus, hybrid printing, and print-on-demand services.”

Sajith highlighted the growing digital print market, acknowledging a prevalent issue with binding quality when compared to the offset market. Sigloch aims to bridge this gap by offering efficient and high-quality solutions tailored to the evolving needs of the industry.

Bindwel is set to continue its industry presence at drupa 2024, where the company plans to showcase its books-on-demand solutions. Additionally, Bindwel will address the importance of standardization in educational books, advocating for streamlined processes to enhance efficiency and reduce costs.

“We are pushing for standardization, questioning the need for so many different sizes. Bringing in standardization will usher in efficiencies and bring down costs,” Sajith emphasized.

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.
