Bhalchandra Nikumb, Kodak’s managing director, said, “In India, the print industry continued to build on its healthy growth trajectory with investments in new technology and equipment a key factor shaping the future for the country’s hundreds of thousands of printers.”
One of the ten is Achieve CTP, while the other nine are Trendsetter CTPs. Most of ten CTPs are 8-up machines, said Nikumb.
He added, “One region, in particular, has characterised this investment trend over the past year. In the southern state of Tamil Nadu, Kodak has seen sharp demand for its portfolio of CTP platesetters with ten customers in 2016 choosing to integrate Kodak’s complete pre-press solution – thermal CTP platesetters, thermal printing plates, and Prinergy Workflow into their operations.”
Digital Plate System Chennai; Frontline Printer in Guindy; Eswari Cards in Sivakasi; Vijay Offset in Madurai; and Olympic Cards in Chennai are some of the Kodak installations in Tamil Nadu.
Earlier this year Kodak celebrated 21 years of thermal imaging technology and its 21,000th computer-to-plate (CTP) sale at Drupa 2016.
