The Future for Ink Jet in the Office
Abstract:The past twenty years have seen many breathtaking changes in printing technologies as we progressed from typewriters to digital presses. This pace shows no signs of slowing down. Digital printing will continue to evolve.
In this talk, the future of ink jet will be explored. To date, ink jet, the major technology for home printing has not dominated in the area of networked printers. The reasons for this, as well as the strengths and limitations of ink jet will be explored. The improvements that will be necessary to expand ink jet to its full potential across a range of applications will be discussed. We will look to the future and see how hard copy will deal with the world of the internet and cyberspace. Finally, we will try to speculate where this will all lead.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
