“Future Directions of Non-Impact Printing Technologies” was the title of a panel discussion during the “First International Congress on Advances in Non-Impact Printing Technologies” in 1981. The 1981 status of non-impact printing establishes the context for the panelists' predictions. Evolution of the non-impact printing technologies and their applications from 1981 to 2001 are then compared with the panelists' predictions. Despite the fact that these predictions were not intended to cover a 20 year period, many were surprisingly accurate. Only a few differed from reality dramatically. The last section is entitled “Where To From Here?” The first part covers expansion of the present application range plus possible future applications. The second deals with a) technical advances in each non-impact printing technology that could improve performance and cost effectiveness and b) new non-impact processes under development or on the horizon plus basic science and technology areas that could have a significant impact on non-impact printing in the future.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
