Meeting the Challenges of Digitally Printing Cans
Abstract:Tonejet digital printing produces high quality colour images direct onto a wide range of materials at a cost and throughput that makes it attractive to the mass packaging industry. A good example is beverage cans, the printing of which presents particular challenges in terms of substrate characteristics, image quality and durability.
In this paper we talk about the demands of printing digitally onto cans, the advantages that digital printing brings such as quality, design flexibility and run length, and the technical challenges that we have overcome in order to deliver a commercial digital printing solution for this important sector of the packaging market.

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.
