27th - 23rd May 2019
TheIJC USA brings together industry and academic leaders in their fields who speak about the latest advances and future developments driving digital print. It includes a focus on inkjet engineering, a review on fluid and ink components such as nano particles, conductive, aqueous and UV inks and an academic track open to all universities and non-commercial research institutes to present their work.
Debbie Thorp will be presenting ‘Inkjet in coatings and complex shapes: Technologies and processes‘
Abstract: Inkjet is most often considered as a graphics printing technology for flat surfaces like paper and film, but it is perhaps more accurate to consider it as a highly flexible deposition technology capable of jetting inks or functional fluids onto a growing range of substrates and surfaces. Advances in printhead technology, combined with advances in software, mean that inkjet can be used effectively in applications and environments that were not possible before. This presentation will focus on the capability of inkjet technology in industrial coating and decorative manufacturing applications.
