Despite other printing technologies constantly entering the market, screen printing still holds a strong and prominent position as many new application areas are being discovered in the view of technological developments across different industries. Looking at the potential that this sector holds, Messe Frankfurt India Trade Fairs Pvt Ltd announced the 15th edition of Screen Print India. Scheduled from 24 – 26 April 2020 at Bombay Exhibition Center, Screen Print India will showcase latest advancements and machinery in sectors like screen printing, textile printing, digital and sublimation. The premier show is also supported by leading associations like Screen Printing & Graphics Association of India, South India Printers Association, Tirupur Export Knit Printers Association, Tirupur Export Printing Managers Association and Madurai Screen Printers Association.
With time, the scope of screen printing technology has widened as the process is further entering into spaces like automobile dials and decals, ceramic decals, metals labels, product application labels, PCB and electronics, home appliances, engineering, electrical goods, sports goods, etc. Textile and garment industry is also going strong with these industries being dominated by flat bed, rotary and carousal type screen printing, playing a major role in mass production. Even in the commercial printing space, screen printing is extensively used in graphics printing and value addition with special effects.
This demand for screen printing technologies under various sectors has attracted leading companies from the industry who have confirmed their participation for the next edition. Geographically as the technology is scattered in various part of the country like Delhi-NCR, Pune, Gujarat, Ludhiana, Bengaluru, Chennai for decals and labels and Tirupur, Kolkata, Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Surat, Ludhiana for textiles, the show is assured to receive a lot of traction from its targeted markets.
Apart from hosting prominent names from the industry, the show will also recognise path-breakers and technology inventors within the screen printing industry with ‘Screen Print Excellence Awards’. The award ceremony hosted to encourage and support the screen printing industry will bring companies from big and small scale industries alike for a night of networking, business and entertainment.
Focussed knowledge seminars throwing light on various processes and technical advancements is another highlight that will keep the exhibitors and visitors up-to-date with the current and future trends of the industry.
