Digital printing will be beneficial to the industrial printing market - labels & packaging, decorative printing - because lead times will be shorter, job lengths can be longer and there is the added benefit of fully variable data printing. A high throughput is needed and the output has to be similar to traditional printing while the substrates vary from very thin to very thick foils, films, aluminum and paper.

The development of UV curable jetting inks and robust grayscale IJ printheads make it possible to build an industrial digital multi-color press. To achieve the necessary throughput (currently 800 sq.m/hr) a single pass system is needed.

A single pass system has different requirements and specifications for the printheads, and requires specific tolerances in the assembly while the complete solution has to be efficient and economically optimized. The use of low viscosity UV ink drops in a raster has its own particularities. These requirements and the current solutions are discussed.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
