being projected as a shining star in the Global Economy sky line. Even though the domestic industrial productivity level with an average growth of 7-8% seemed good, however, the fundamentals post announcement of GST and its implications present a worrying picture of nations capacity to continuously sustain a good economic growth . The figures are dismal. The mining, insurance, real estate, financial and professional services sectors slowed down to 6.4% from 9.4% an year ago. Print publishing & manufacturing segment is reeling under a heavy pressure of stagnancy and down trend in productivity due to non-realisation of money from the system. How long and how far can this situation be stretched is anyone guess, unless robust investment and speedy job creation or retention is guaranteed.

It was an attempt from my side to encourage him to go in for high speed book production machine. Despite the fact that till that time no one in the book publishing industry had ventured into such technology, he took not much time to give green single. It is needless to mention that now he has several set ups and MBD Group happens to be the largest publisher and printer of books, in India. Mrs. Satish Malhotra, a great lady behind THE LEGEND, is down to earth personality. I have several sweet memories of meeting her during marriages of two daughters and other family functions.

With the print industry speculated to grow at 8% per annum over the next 5 years,

the printing ink segment is also expected to see a strong surge. There is now steady growth in demand for UV ink due to the increase in power-saving UV printing and the industry undergoing a switch from conventional to UV ink. Siddharth Wagal, partner, Chandana Graphics says, “There is increased demand for UV jobs. Our clients are from the pharmaceutical industry and, thus, there is equal demand for UV and matte finish for specific applications. In addition, some specialized jobs call for use of metallic ink. For the best possible results, major players across the industry rely on online UV machines.”

Eenadu (Today) Keeps Growing Everyday


ressline News has b e e n co n s c i o u s l y informing the readers about the growth and presence posted during the last three decades by the vernacular language newspapers and what better testimonial of the fact can be than what Mr. I. Venkat, Director, Eenadu, put forth recently. There is no doubt about the growth of the growth of Indian newspapers in the regional domains. It has been proven word from him, who said “the regional newspapers are now gaining new grounds in terms of circulations and readership. He asserted taking the example of Eenadu, which has escalated circulation in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to become a leading regional newspaper in the region, which prompted them to introduce

more editions in the years to come. The supportive fact and figure in this respect is the Information and Broadcasting Ministry's recent report showing printed newspaper received growth of 5.13 percent in 201516, with 110, 851 registered publications. In this, Hindi newspapers and regional dailies are overtaking the advertisingrich English language papers in terms of readership.� No doubt, diversity of cultures, languages and social structure apart, the affinity towards language is a matter of great pride for the masses and hence one sees continuous growth in vernacular. Though English is a language for international or domestic business and communication worldwide but it is healthy that the masses are well entrenched in their roots.

Jagran Prakashan Relates to Audience through Films

This has necessitated creation of a value based, in time, paradigm to cater to the needs of customer in terms of fast moving spare parts being available of the shelf. Pressline India has introduced single window sourcing of such spares to minimize the down time.

Bustle Wheel

The inventor was Thomas F. Curran of United States.

Relative print size is a term that is broken down further.

Let's assume that your web passes through four printing units: Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, in that order. When the black passes through the last printing unit, the image has expanded. This ex p a n s i o n h a p p e n s t h e greatest to the color that was printed first. The result is poor

Relative print length refers to the image size in the direction of the web, while relative print width refers to the image size across the web. Most pressmen use the term fanout to refer to the difference across the web. Fanout happens because as a printed image passes

through successive print units, it picks up moisture. Between each print unit tension is being controlled across and in the direction of the web. This stretching that takes place literally increases the size of the web marginally. Once the first printed image reaches the last printed unit, there will already be a noticeable difference of register on the edges. BUSTLE WHEELS : Many web presses have wheels mounted between each printing unit. These wheels will ride on the web and literally stretch it apart in difference places as it enters the printing unit. The drawback is that it can cause setoff since physical contact is required with the web. Careful placement can avoid this. A more popular alternative as of late are air bustles. These are simply a controlled blast of air pushing the web up in strategic places.

that can affect fan out such as the amount of tension and the amount of water being applied. If you have an automatic registration system that can play a role as well. However these should be more controllable during your press runs.

PRE-PRESS MANAGEMENT : As now the pre-press comprises of computer to plate to make the plates there are softwares available that control the aspect ratio of the image e.g. the first color printed can literally be burned slightly smaller on the plate to allow for the difference as the first color takes the maximum impact of fan out. All this is achieved by tests to determine the value of fan out occurrence

There are other values

This analysis becomes important as most web users or their operators dispense of with bustle wheels as they construe it as interference during operations, but realization of the factor of fan out does help register control which otherwise is blamed on imaginary dynamics.
