• Days are gone when printers/convertors relied upon manual finishing of their printed jobs. In today’s scenario printers have to focus on more automated and integrated finishing solutions for their operations. A lot of reports are emerging on the surface that printers get short time bound orders in small quantities from buyers. In order to fulfill the buyer's requirement and to stay ahead in the competition, printers are investing a lot of money into latest printing and packaging machines.

    But the main question arises, what’s the actual worth of their investment? Are they investing in right kind of machines? As the buyers are changing printers also have to change their operations. Nowadays when a magazine is printed, it has a different section of advertisement, each with a different style of printing, some ad requires embossing; some requires foiling etc. To make it happen, printers have different printing machines but they majorly focus on automating their finishing lines to save time and produce better results.
    From the beginning, major technological advancement was in the printing domain & because of this, post press/finishing got left behind in the total workflow integration. Also when manual labour was cheap, many converters felt that what could be done manually was actually cheaper to do . But this is changing rapidly as companies are focussing on post press integration as well or else this becomes a bottle neck in the whole system. Additionally the finished product aesthetics come out of not only the print but also the finishing processes applied. VINSAK, a leading manufacturer of printing and packaging machines have done a lot of advancement in digital printing and post press machines.
