Indian book publishing is at crossroads. While the numbers of titles getting published every year are increasing, yet bestsellers are few. Self-publishing is on rise and individual print runs are coming down steadily.

Cashflow is always a point of concern. Warehousing and logistics costs are growing steadily. There are uncertainties in air about the future of schoolbook publishing.

This is the time when we need to look at the existing processes critically and to challenge them. We need to understand how we could control the wastage and reduce our inventory to improve cash flow. We need to understand how we could get the stock just in time and also address the growing need of customisation according to personal choice.

Digital printing could address all of these and more. This effort by Manroland to connect with the end users viz. publishers and printers and to better understand their views could be described as the prime objective of this roadshow.

Manroland offers perfect finishing solution for digital printing. With a speed of 300 m/min and seamless change of cut-off, The Manroland FormerLine is the perfect solution for the publishing need. Web width is available with 20-inch, 30-inch and 42-inch and could handle 45-150 gsm paper. This is the biggest range and fastest engine of its kind.

The roadshows in Mumbai and Bengaluru are in continuation to the Book Conclave organised at Delhi in August 2016 and the next logical step to reduce the digital divide.

Manroland India is hosting a two-city road show in Mumbai and Bengaluru in the first week of May for book printers and publishers.

The two events on 2 May and 4 May in Mumbai and Bengaluru respectively is a continuous effort by Manroland to develop an understanding of digital printing and finishing in India and to position its digital offerings.
