Industrial Digital Color Printing Press for the Plastic Card Industry
Traditional offset printing does not offer to card issuers the opportunity to print multiple card designs in a single run. Other printing technologies are not compatible with an industrial environment in terms of speed and cost. The target for final customers is to have a unique product at a very low cost.
This problem is today a difficult reality and the plastic card manufacturers and related suppliers are looking for solutions meeting positively this demand.
This document describes the development of an industrial inkjet color printing press for plastic card. The different development steps will be detailed including the customer need, the selected technology and partner, equipment, the print engine development, the technical and economical results in production.

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.
