“This is a landmark deal in terms of revolutionising finishing capabilities with the state-of-the-art digital technology and providing unique application capabilities,” said TP Jain, managing director, Monotech systems.
Speaking about the acquisition, PM Chellappan of PM Digital, said, “At Drupa, I was impressed with the machine’s capabilities and the technology used. The decision to buy was spontaneous.”
Scodix, which had one of the busiest stalls in the recently concluded Drupa, is the industry leader in digital enhancement print technology and announced the launch of world’s first digital glittering station and Braille solution as part of their product feature.
“The response from the market for the Scodix technology is phenomenal and we expect to finalise some more deals soon,” said Jain.
“The unique features like highest possible gloss levels, variable height emboss effect and the newly introduced glittering and braille solution has definitely made the overall print industry notice the machine,” he added.
The Monotech stall also displayed the Konica Minolta bizhub C70HC press with a view to target the photo market.
“We are expecting excellent volume of sale from the C70HC and will be showcasing the press at the show in Hyderabad,” said Jain.
“We are expecting a 100% growth in the digital presses sale this year and are well on course to achieve that. Similarly, we have set reasonable targets for our pre-press division, considering the uncertainty in the market due to imposition of anti-dumping duty on digital plates,” he concluded
