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.

  • 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.
