Milan Enterprises boosts on-demand book printing with RICOH presses


Monotech Systems, a leading manufacturer and one-stop solution provider for the printing and packaging industry globally has subsequently installed highly versatile RICOH Pro 8300S and RICOH Pro 5310S digital presses at Milan Enterprises in Delhi. Being a popular book printer, Milan Enterprises is a destination for a host of reputed book publishers.

Book on demand…

Over the last 25 years, Milan Enterprises has been engaging in the book and commercial printing business. The company is located on Ansari Road in Daryaganj, a book publishing hub in the capital city. “Since we engage in the book printing business for years, we diversified our activity into a new vertical when we started to indulge in on-demand book printing. We rebranded ourselves as Milan Digital Print for the new activity,” said Jeet Lal Kushwaha, Proprietor, Milan Enterprises.

He added, “On-demand book printing is gaining ground these days and it’s now our main forte in business. Unlike the old days, book printing has the advantage of producing only a few copies as per the requirement of authors or publishers. In this, our two new RICOH digital presses from Monotech Systems do the right job in printing as minimum as 100 copies of a book title.”

The solution…

Milan Enterprises adopted the RICOH Pro 8300S with complete finishing units first, followed by the RICOH Pro 5310S. “RICOH Pro 8300S is a black and white production printer with which we print inside pages of books. Then we installed the RICOH Pro 5310S colour production press, especially for book covers and other commercial printing,” mentioned Jeet, adding that they earlier used a Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C6000, which has now been replaced by the new RICOH digital presses from Monotech Systems.

RICOH Pro 8300S can print at the speed of 96 ppm, handling up to 350 gsm of paper. As this digital production press is perfectly designed for monochrome printing fast and affordably, Milan Enterprises chose it to produce on-demand copies of books without sacrificing both the quality and quantity it delivers.

Likewise, RICOH Pro C5310S delivers vibrant colors and pristine image quality prints at 80 ppm in 360 gsm, compatibly handling up to 13×19.2″ paper size, suitably for book covers. “In addition to printing colorful book covers, this press is perfect for producing a wide range of commercial prints such as newsletters, cards and brochures,” mentioned Jeet.

Plans ahead…

Milan Enterprises boasts of a long list of reputed publishers for whom they work extensively in the production of on-demand book titles. The list consists of Prabhat Prakashan, Rajkamal Prakashan, and Dreamtech Press, among others. “We value the way Monotech Systems co-operated with us to deliver the two highly versatile digital presses. Sooner or later, we will be chalking out a plan to invest in another advanced press from them,” informed Jeet.

“Digital printing is gaining momentum and so do RICOH as a proven brand for the production printing in digital and commercial printing segments. We are glad to see the response to the product of each segment we have served,” added Ajeet Pareek, Business Head – Digital Products and Solutions, Monotech Systems.
