Sofine Color Lab installs RICOH Pro C9200


Nashik-based Sofine Color Lab has recently installed RICOH Pro C9200 digital colour production press, supplied and installed by Monotech Systems.

A continuing legacy of a family-owned business, Sofine Color Lab has been run by three generations of Sonavane family. Vikrant Sonavane of SofineColor Lab, waho is the third generation in the business, recalls that the company’s establishment is dated back to India’s pre-independence era. “It was in the year 1943, my great grandfather BK Sonavane, who was the first generation from the family in the business, switched to photography and opened a photo studio in the year 1957. The rest is a continuing journey,” shares Vikrant.

Over the last eight decades, Sofine Color Lab has incarnated into many avatars. The company keeps transforming its infrastructure, lines of machines and technologies, manpower, print innovations, etc. “From generation to generation it has been our tradition to invest in the latest machines and technologies,” mentions Vikrant, adding that the purchase of RICOH Pro C9200 from Monotech Systems is pretty much a part of the company’s age-old tradition of bringing home the best-in-class technologies for unique and high-quality print production.

“Without doubt, addition of the new RICOH Pro C9200 to our machine portfolio a few months ago has changed the way we used to manage quality in photo and commercial colour graphics. This digital production press is undoubtedly the most proficient digital colour press we have ever owned. Following the installation of this RICOH Graphic Arts Edition digital colour production press, we have increased our sheer capability to raise the print quality bar in photo and commercial printing,” tells Vikrant.

Main end-products of Sofine Color Lab, apart from its foremost photo books and albums, consist of fancy wedding & greeting cards, stickers, labels, booklets, etc.

“Now, we receive tremendous positive feedback from a host of our customers with respect to quality in the overall digital prints we produce for them using the RICOH Pro C9200,” emphasises Vikrant. This RICOH digital colour production press is capable to print vibrant graphics in resolution of 2400×4800 dpi on a range of lightweight and heavyweight media including super gloss, coated, thick cards, etc, up to 470 gsm at the speed of 115 ppm (pages per minute).
