Graphic India in Dimapur buys RICOH Pro 8300S
Monotech Systems, a leading machine manufacturer & one-stop solution provider in the printing and packaging industry and an authorised RICOH distributor in India, never stops expanding its installation base of RICOH digital presses, irrespective of geographies. The company covers even far-flung tier-II and III cities with full after-sales service support. In this, the company has installed a RICOH Pro 8300S black and white digital production press at Graphic India in Dimapur, Nagaland, North-East India.
Graphic India in Dimapur is an old and popular reprographic shop located strategically on the city’s busy uptown PWD Road. Recalling the early days of the shop, Suresh Bilala, Proprietor, of Graphic India, narrates, “My shop is 27 years old. I started it merely as a stationery shop installed with a Xerox machine for photocopy service.” He mentions that he coined the name ‘Graphic India’ only after they started indulging in digital printing with a Konica Minolta AccurioPress.
On choosing the new RICOH Pro 8300S black and white digital production press from Monotech Systems, Suresh says that they were desperately looking for a high-speed monochrome production press for a high-volume black and white job. “Our quest for the machine ended when we embarked upon the RICOH Pro 8300S, which Monotech Systems supplied to many other reprographic shops in the region.”
He continues, “RICOH Pro 8300S is an ideal press for crisp black and white print documents we supply to government offices, private companies, students and others all over Nagaland and some parts of neighbouring Assam. We are quite satisfied with the uninterrupted productivity of this compact production digital press. Following the installation of this RICOH production press, we are now really capable to boost both production speed and production volume.”
When it comes to features and competency, RICOH Pro 8300S offers a superb resolution of 2400 x 4800 dpi and capable to run at the speed of 96 pages per minute (ppm). This digital press can print on lightweight to heavyweight stocks up to 350 gsm. It can also take up diverse stocks such as NTR, synthetic media and oversized sheets.
Backed by a team of 12 printing and production boys, Graphic India is a cosy commercial printing corner for customers rushing from all over Dimapur and other towns of Nagaland. “Most of our customers are from Dimapur, Kohima and some neighbouring towns of Assam, such as Karbi Along, Golaghat, Diphu and others. Students from schools, colleges and vocational training institutes from these towns of Nagaland and Assam also form a major chunk in our client list,” says Suresh.
Suresh mentions that RICOH Pro 8300S boosts the business of Graphic India to another level. In addition to this production machine, he emphasises that they are happy to be partnered with Monotech Systems whose after-sales support is very swift as they immediately attend us whenever we call them.”
