Inkjet printing has a huge potential in direct decoration of three dimensional consumer and industrial goods due to its nonimpact character. As a digital method, inkjet provides several benefits compared to analog printing: Personalized and customized products, on demand production and production optimization due to integration into production line, to mention some. On the other hand, there are also several challenges to overcome, e.g. how to integrate inkjet print heads to transfer system properly, how to handle and monitor complex shaped products and how to ensure substrate-ink compatibility and controlled interactions between them. In addition, applicability and reliability of inkjet technology itself in various challenging conditions needs careful consideration and examination. In this paper we consider different benefits and challenges related to direct decoration using inkjet technology. Based on empirical studies, we present some results which demonstrate applicability of inkjet technology in direct digital decoration.

  • 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.
