Ink Jet Conference, Lisbon, 12-14 November
IMI Europe brings you a truly exciting programme this autumn, assembled by chairs Mike Willis of Pivotal Resources and Debbie Thorp of iTi – imaging Technology international. 22 hours of presentations and networking over 3 days!
We will explore the potential for high-speed ink jet markets with IT Strategies, the technical issues of single pass printing with FFEI and the advances in industrial printing with Xennia. This year was Ink Jet Drupa, and three of the key players for commercial ink jet printing will discuss their technology and prospects – Océ Production Printing the Digidot printhead and Jetstream products, Hewlett-Packard the Inkjet Web Press, and Kodak the Stream continuous ink jet technology. Ink jet is moving into the packaging industry as well, as will be discussed by Sun Chemical and Industrial Inkjet.
Piezo printhead technology is key for the future, and we have presentations from Fujifilm Dimatix on the new Samba and Q-class printheads, Océ Technologies will disclose more detail of their piezo technology with CrystalPoint solid inks, and Xaar their latest developments and applications. On the ink side Hewlett-Packard will discuss their new latex inks, Agfa Graphics inks for packaging applications, Sunjet functional inks, and Eckart silver-free metallics.
LED curing of UV inks remains a hot topic and will be discussed by Integration Technology and EXFO, and Adphos will explain drying aqueous inks at high-speed. The new flow-through printheads require a different approach to system design as TTP will discuss, and Q-Lab the all-important issue of testing images for light-fastness.
This event also offers great networking opportunities, with two receptions and one lunch included, and all registrants are welcome to give a 5 minute presentation in our scheduled “Suppliers Forum”. Also you can sign up for a free table-top display, but book early as this space is limited.
