Screen Print India 2018 will cover leading players like Skyscreen, Grafica Flextronica, JN Arora, TechNova Imaging Systems, Photokina Chemicals, Dhaval Color Chem, Silk Flex India, NBC Meshtec, Konica Minolta, and Sunstar Graphics. Together, they will showcase screen printing technologies, textile/garment printing materials, sublimation printing, digital textile printers, wide format digital machinery, consumables and inks.
Since screen printing, digital sublimation, heat transfer and textile printing/garment decoration are undergoing a rapid change, potential business visitors and traders attending the show will get a chance to witness live demos of the latest technologies.
Extending its support to Screen Print India 2018 is Asia Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (ASGA), which is a prominent association found to improve technical expertise, encourage mutual ties and friendship, and support cooperation and advancement in Asian screen printing and graphic imaging industry.
