New Delhi-based Avantika, which won the PrintWeek Digital Photo Album Printer of the Year 2023, has recently invested in a Ricoh Pro 8320S. This is the company’s second monochrome production press from Ricoh. Both were supplied and installed by Monotech Systems.

Avantika was established by MN Pandey in 1988. Over the last three decades, the company has carved a niche for itself. Pandey is now joined by his son Himanshu, in leading the overall business.

“Since our inception, we have maintained our USP to provide personal attention to every assignment we handle for clients from different market segments. Digital book printing is one of the vibrant areas where we have been engaging for years. We excel in this domain because of the advanced Ricoh digital production presses we bought from Monotech Systems,” Himanshu Pandey said, adding that the digital presses are perfect for printing high-quality inside pages of books of different kinds. 

The Ricoh Pro 8320S produces sharp text prints in 2400×4800-dpi. It prints at speeds up to 136-ppm on papers up to 350-gsm for delivering crisp texts and figures closer to offset quality. 

“As per our experience with the Ricoh Pro black & white presses, we would like to say that these machines boost our book printing business. That’s why we have added a third press to our production facility,” Pandey added.

He said, “The three Ricoh Pro machines now running in our facility have unique features and capabilities that defy all others in their classes.”
