Konica Minolta’s bizhub PRESS C1085 Helped Kolkata Based Graphics Firm Streamline Its Operations
With demands for high volume as well as diverse printing requirements at an all time high, printing businesses are eagerly hunting for new digital printing solutions to sustain themselves in this highly competitive segment.
Mr. Barun Maiti, a native of Midnapore in West Bengal and owner of Kolkata based printing firm ‘HS Laxmi Graphic Innovation.’ Mr. Maiti was enchanted with the process of printing since his childhood and joined a printing firm in Gujarat to pursue his interest in the field. He then thought of setting up his own printing firm in Kolkata, owing to numerous renowned sari and hosiery brands in the city which was outsourced to few printers in Gujarat. Managing the activities and logistics from Gujarat was challenging, and this compelled him to be on a round the clock lookout for a suitable end to end printing solution which could not only ease his company’s burden of outsourcing printing tasks, but also reduce the mounting operating expenditures.
‘’I felt that shorter run jobs and variable jobs was increasing day by day and with cut throat competition and fixed deadlines, digital was the best way to move forward and set up base in this domain. Following which I deployed Konica Minolta’s engine Bizhub 1085, owing to its unprecedented printing quality, high productivity and ability to perform high volume printing operations of diverse formats,’’ says Mr Maiti.
Today his firm is witnessing a rapid growth in the space of digital printing, owing to reduced dependency on outsourcing operations. He is also highly impressed with Konica Minolta’s strong local service support network which convinced him to pick the company’s solution after evaluating a host of offerings from other vendors to cater to his company’s end to end printing requirements.
’’Konica Minolta was the number one brand in our list with its dedicated team in the east and good print quality of KM engine Bizhub 1085 press. It was also easier to trust a brand where communication levels were open and supportive,’’ added Mr. Maiti.
Bizhub PRESS C1085 also boasts of ‘Exact Colour,’ a high precision colour management software and 3D collaboration to ensure minimal colour differences in environments where colour fluctuations are very easy to manage.
A satisfied customer, Mr Maiti further adds that the printing industry is witnessing rapid changes with a tactical shift in the requirements of clients.
‘’Digitally printed sheet are growing and will continue to grow and no one can stop that. Most of the jobs these days are shifting from long runs to short runs with customer opting for variable data printing. However the need has also risen for large size digital presses going forward,’’ concludes Mr. Maiti.
