Digital printing technology, originally developed for office and data processing applications, has moved beyond those in the past decade and is now finding use in virtually every field of printing, and even beyond printing in the usual sense.

Inkjet printing is leading the way into new application areas. In the past, inkjet printing has been used in product marking, carton marking, addressing, and large format printing and plotting, as well as office and home printing. Today, inkjet technology is being applied in textile printing, the printing of packaging (beyond marking and addressing), postal franking, commercial photo processing, the printing of decorative materials, and even “printing” of threedimensional objects. Tomorrow, we will see inkjet technology applied in even more esoteric fields, such as the printing of microcircuits and flat-panel displays, and in some areas that cannot be called printing at all.

  • 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.
