This new conference highlights trends, challenges, case studies and the latest technical innovations in industrial inkjet technology across functional, decorative and package printing applications. Attendees will learn from industry leaders who are developing the technology or successfully implementing it in their manufacturing process. A welcome reception and 15 tabletop exhibits will offer opportunities for networking and community building with thought leaders and technical experts.
Attendees of the conference can select to participate in either a Technical track or a Creative track, where they can get more focused information tailored to their specific business interests.
One technical track will focus on advances in digital UV capabilities including the latest in pretreatment curing processes. Pamela Lee, senior product manager for Excelitas Technologies, will present “UV LEDs: Where are they now?” where she will share her insights on where the technology and supporting infrastructure are and how to differentiate in print applications.
“Advancements in LED curing technology are providing increased productivity, differentiating features, and economical value in printing applications,” said Lee.
Another technical track will focus on inks and color management, highlighting the current state of aqueous inkjet inks and best practices for drying and curing water-based inks.
Hamid Shirazi, Ph.D., aqueous inkjet ink product manager for FUJIFILM Imaging Colorants, will present “Inkjet Technology: Latest Trends and State of Fujifilm Technology.”
According to Dr. Shirazi, Fujifilm has major development efforts in key aqueous inkjet markets including commercial printing, textile, packaging and décor, including flooring and laminates. “However, each of these markets and their sub-segments are at a different digitization conversion rate so we encounter very different requirements and demands for each segment,” he said.
