The death of print media technology has been predicted again and again over the past decades. Due to the rapid development of electronic technologies, printing today seems to be a mature technology leaving hardly any space for innovation despite all digital advancement in this field. However, the possibilities of new polymer electronic materials will dramatically alter this view as they enable the printing of electronics. Printing will evolve from a graphic art to a micro structuring technology. On the one hand, this will result in completely new requirements for printing processes and machines. On the other hand, entirely new growth markets for printed electronics can be envisaged.

  • 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.
