Gurvinder Singh, director, sales and marketing, Monotech Systems, said, “We booked five Colornovo during the show to be delivered to Barcom Industries and Wonder Pac in India, a customer in Italy and two to our existing user in China.”

He said all the sold kits will have inline finishing and converting options with UV inkjet printing, which is a USP of Jetsci Colornovo.

“We have come a long way from basic monochrome VDP solutions to a fully integrated UV inkjet label production press completely developed in India. Apart from the orders, many global leaders in flexo printing machines and finishing equipment have shown great interest for tie-ups with us,” Singh added.

The company also received orders for its flagship VSRI (Variable data printing, slitter, rewinder and inspection system). “Three VSRI has been booked by Holostik India, Noida, and two more by a security printer to be installed one each in south and north India,” Singh said.

Meanwhile, the company also displayed prototypes of Jetsci Kolorsmart (a full colour hybrid digital label production system) and digital label finishing system (digital spot UV varnish, digital screen white, and digital cold foil to generate effects on labels like emboss, silk screen, spot coating, textured coating) at the show. “These prototypes will be shaped into complete products soon, as we have received great response on these solutions,” Jimit Mittal, vice-president, inkjet products and solutions, Monotech Systems, said.
