T P Jain, managing director at Monotech Systems, said, "BasysPrint, with its UV-setter series has been a trendsetter in positioning the UV CTP technology in India.”
At Drupa 2012, the Netherlands-based platesetter manufacturing firm launched this 860x for digital exposure of UV-sensitive offset printing plates.
The 860x series delivers resolutions of upto 2,400dpi, which according to Jain, is at par with the best available CTP device across the quality, reliability and speed domains.
Jain said, “We have been averaging about 40 units a year for the past few years and with the new launches, we expect a growth of about 15 to 20% this year. The technology is trending and will expedite its way in many firms across the country.”
Besides Mumbai and Ahmednagar, Monotech Systems has installed Basysprint UV CtCP at four firms across the country – Spectrum Imaging in Hyderabad; Softlink Scanners in Nagpur; and Japan Art Press and Replika Press in New Delhi.
Jain concluded, “With a plethora of UV CtCP players, the Indian market will get trifurcated into three almost equal parts – thermal, UV CtCP and violet technology. This means big growth for UV CtCP in India.”
