DRUPA 2008 appeared to herald a coming-of-age of inkjet technology for mainstream print applications. Xaar and its partners and licensees presented a number of digital presses exploiting a variety of Xaar technologies showing real printing. Those technologies combined with the OEMs' own have impacted various commercial print applications today. Three of those technologies have been key to a good fit: first, the underlying piezoelectric DOD structure that delivers high native resolution and long printhead life; second, grayscale printing and its benefits in high-quality single-pass printing; third, TF Technology™, significant in meeting commercial printers' expectations for reliability. Past the euphoria of the show, the industry realizes that users face challenges with printing on a wide variety of media, and OEMs maintain steady progress in evolving their presses.
