GURUGRAM, India , June 3, 2022 (press release) –

The long-term trend towards shorter and medium run lengths has been putting stress upon commercial printers and publishers for years. Digital printing’s ability to print in economical quantities, all the way down to just one unit, offers publishers a powerful tool to address variations in demand and has inventory and distribution cost savings as well as managing the versioning cost-effectively. Sensing the need Monotech Systems has launched a print-on-demand high-speed full-color inkjet web press under its global brand JESTCI® on the first day of Print Pack India.

Mr. Jimit Mittal, President, JETSCI® Global says, there is a switch in the market from conventional to digital and I believe approx. 50% market has moved towards one or other forms of digital printing technology for their very short-run needs. For book printing, no other technology is as productive across the broad range of book manufacturing as inkjet. Its faster running speeds, higher print resolutions, ability to accommodate bigger sheet sizes, web widths combined with longer printhead life, and more inline and nearline finishing options are making inkjet a cost-effective alternative to short and medium run lengths as well in many cases for longer print runs.”

“Way back in 2021, when we launched knowzzleJet- DL, High-speed Monochrome Inkjet Web Press, we’ve received a fabulous response from the market which drove us to launch knowzzleJet- DF, Full-color Inkjet Web Press this year as both the presses could print-on-demand all main types of books like consumer books, educational books, religious books, novels, cookery, children’s books, biographies, and other types of literature along with much other security, transactional printing jobs.” He added.

Moreover, there are revenue advantages that these new technological advances bring. Publishers can significantly expand sales overseas because they can deliver digital files to printers that can print short, on-demand runs in growing markets. Printers can expand their profitability by offering new and different services including personalization allowing the development of new application areas.

When the pandemic set in, it fueled inkjet technology as consumers were isolated at home and created new opportunities for book publishers and book manufacturing.

Digital print-on-demand advances the mainstream publishers and self-publishers when books didn’t have enough demand to justify their retention in their catalog as quantities are too small to justify a large print run and due to huge increase in raw material costs like plates, paper, etc, digital becomes a more suitable time.

JETSCI® knowzzleJet inkjet web press is powered by the Memjet printhead technology and gives resolutions of up to 1600 x 1600 dpi with the printing of as small as 1 pt. font size micro text and very high-quality Grayscale images. It can effortlessly handle a diverse range of print jobs with different page sizes, and counts, including teaching materials, study resources, manuals, reissues, and reprints with variable data printing capabilities.

The ability to print in economical quantities, up to a single digital printing unit, gives publishers a powerful tool to meet different needs and save on inventory and distribution costs. Publishers can significantly increase sales because they can supply digital files to printers capable of printing short prints on-demand in developing markets. Equipped with a high-speed PDF workflow RIP engine with advanced features for accurate and high-quality printing without loss of speed no matter the application. The Smart Solution Platform also comes with optional sheeting, folding, gathering, and booklet making.
