Romania-based PlusPrint, a pioneer in the field of printing, signage solutions, and the customization of promotional items, recently purchased a Jetsci ColorAqua full-color digital label press manufactured by Monotech Systems in India.

A press date 27 August 2021 says that PlusPrint plans to use the digital label press for short-run labels and the security printing segment. Headquartered in Bucharest, PlusPrint was established in 2011 and has become a reference partner for many customers in the printing industry, from label production to commercial printing and promotional items. 

“We were looking for the latest technology in the roll-to-roll label printing that would offer top quality and productivity at a very good cost. We are happy to be among the first companies in Europe to have access to this new technology offered by Jetsci Global in partnership with Memjet. The quality and productivity of this machine are unmatched in the industry by any machine in its price range,” says Ionut Buhagiar, managing partner at PlusPrint.

Manufactured in India by Monotech Systems at their new facility in Haryana, the Jetsci ColorAqua label press uses Memjet PH Technology with water-based pigment inks to provide greater durability, enhanced lightfastness, and giving a more fade resistance due to bigger color particles.

The company claims that the new press enables label printers to adopt a fully digital workflow in the printing process at an entry-level cost, although it includes features such as high definition CMYK for full process color printing, micro text, variable data, and security printing. The system can print on most of the coated and uncoated label stocks and many film substrates with the application of a primer when needed.

Neeraj Thappa, vice president, Jetsci Global, states, “The installation at PlusPrint in Romania is our fifth Jetsci installation in Europe this year. It’s always great to be connected with the business leaders who have a vision and intention to expand and invest in innovation. We are very glad to be associated with PlusPrint and thankful for their trust in us. With the shrinking commercial printing market, it’s inevitable for a print business to either diversify or invest for its sustainability.” 

“The JetSci ColorAqua is a gateway to label printing for such businesses with its attractive forward-thinking prospects. It is a productive and versatile solution that comes in a compact footprint for converters with very high-quality output that addresses the market requirements of very short and short-run jobs.”

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
