Inkjet technology, this is only the beginning

1. Inkjet droplets by S Hoath HRThe success of inkjet as digital print technology, see the enormous sales at drupa, causes a tsunami of new technology which proves that this is only the beginning. Not only Landa´s nano inks will decide the future of inkjet in the coming years. Companies such as Canon with their new UVGel inks and Xaar with a printhead especially developed for water-based inks will raise the standard. Combine this with improved raster technology, process control and product automisation and inkjet will become a better alternative to traditional print technology. These technologies will also create new markets such as direct to object printing and develop applications we can not even imagine. Many of these developments will be subject of the Inkjet Conference organised by ESMA on 5 and 6 October. The IJC is targeted at technology specialist and will follow this for our readers.
