Digital Print reduces the production time of jobs drastically–at least in the expectations! How can short production times be achieved? Not only the print process must be very fast, but also the entire process from the generation of a document till the finished product must be optimized. Prepress and postpress equipment must work seamlessly together with the printing device to make use of synergies. Open standards like JDF for automation and easy communication can help. Integrated workflow solutions are the subject of this presentation. How can the production costs be reduced by automation of the process, how flexible is an integrated process and how does it fit into the different environments are some question which should be addressed.

Colour Digital Print was focused during the last years mainly on short run colour, but this changes step by step. More and more requirements are coming up to differentiate from Offset. Due to the bad economy even in Offset prices are reduced for short runs. To be competitive and gain market share it is necessary to offer workflows in digital print, which enables the owner to offer new products or services and to produce fast and – more or less - without waste.

  • 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.
