“This innovation is the result of TechNova's mission to help extend the life cycle of medium-sized press establishments, facing competitive pressures from digital and electronic media. The SmartJet Inkjet CTP solution provides printers an affordable option in digital imaging, which helps them achieve a sustainable advantage over competition,” Chawla added.

Besides this, during the show, TechNova will showcase its extensive range of digital solutions from multiple alliances covering the full spectrum of digital pre-press, software, digital press and digital post-press enhancement solutions.

“We are going to demonstrate an amazing range of software solutions,” said Chawla. “Agfa Arziro security solution offers the highest possible anti-counterfeiting and tracking for packaging and commercial applications. Apogee has always been our pivotal workflow offering and we are going to attract customers wanting to implement its latest version to build offset and digital hybrid workflows.”

This will be first time the company will demonstrate the entire suit of Esko software solutions and will have Esko’s widely popular XE10 cutting table running live at its stand. “XE10 offers unmatched accuracy and dependability for customers who wish to explore from general commercial or digital printing into the packaging or prototyping applications,” he added.

In digital, the company will also have the range of software from Enfocus and customisable web2print solutions from Tecra.

In digital post-press, TechNova will have DC646, an automated compact digital document finishing solution from Duplo that can do 25 cuts, eight slits and 20 A3 sheet creases per minute in one go with unique barcode scanned accuracy.

“Similarly, our customers can also experience the monochrome and smaller format colour digital presses. We will have C1100, India’s most popular 100 ppm colour digital press, powered by Konica Minolta running live at the TechNova stall,” Chawla said.
