Paper-Related Innovations and the Impact on Digital Production Printing
Abstract:Today the common reputation of the paper business is that of a technically mature industry with, if any, long innovation cycles. A closer look into this industry, however, discloses that paper and paper properties are still far from being constant. Paper properties are rooted in a complex system of diverse requirements: cost pressure, restrictive legal regulations, keen competition, and new demands from customers (printer, converter, publisher, and end-consumer), which result in perpetual process and quality improvements as well as the development of new products with different properties. This paper gives an overview of recent developments in the industry and their possible impact on electrophotographic devices. Special emphasis is given to runability and printability of some of these new products on a Kodak NexPress S2500 digital production color press, and the results were compared to the data obtained from conventional papers of the same market segment.

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.
