The Jet Press 720S features new generation Samba printheads with each B2 width print bar containing 17 individually replaceable modular printheads, each with 2,048 nozzles, ensuring the press can achieve native resolutions of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. The print bar also takes advantage of the VersaDrop technology, allowing the size and shape of each ink drop to be precisely controlled and placed on the paper. This ensures high digital print quality and no on-press tweaks are necessary. The replaceable modular printheads also significantly reduce the necessity for system downtime and minimize breaks in production for press maintenance, with a traditional offset -fed paper feed mechanism providing high registration accuracy and reliable operation.

Already a popular press throughout Europe for commercial print applications, the Jet Press 720S was last year also configured to be able to take folding carton board. This new model benefits from the same industry leading quality and productivity as the commercial print version, but with a redesigned vacuum jacket and the ability to increase the vacuum pressure around the drum, allowing the press to accommodate a more diverse range of heavier carton boards commonly used in packaging applications.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
