fantastic! I fully understood inkjet limitations today


By Margie Dana on Apr 01, 2011

"Inkjet will never fly" -- this is hands down the best Not Frank video I've seen to date. Not that I want to date Not Frank, but you guys at WTT are ever on the cutting (floor) edge.

Bravo! Bring back Not Not Frank! (I guess this means Frank??)

Perhaps inkjet COULD fly if the ink was under very high pressure and the jetting systems were able to produce droplets in the shape of airfoils(?) I'll bet we can get the best engineering minds on this right away... What do you say (Not) Frank?


By Tony Karg on Apr 01, 2011

Joe, I never knew you had a standup comedy background too.

Thanks for the laugh.

I want to see Not Dr Joe

(Not) Frank is way off the mark in his description of "ink jet". "Ink jet" does not refer to shipping ink via jet planes. That's just silly. "Ink jet" refers to mega-droplets (pardon the oxymoron) of ink the size of shipping containers that are enveloped in a gossamar fabric and propelled by solar powered tiny "jets" arrayed strategically on their surfaces. When in shipment, each drop(let?) is drone-like-controlled making it possible for the supplier to "target" each and every customer "on-demand". This ultra efficient delivery system is just another example of how the Mensa minds of the printing industry continue to win the cross-media. Go Print!

"We believe in the printed word". So declares Claus Bolza-Schünemann, president of KBA, as he reviews the state of the industry as a whole and his company's position within it. He says that the success of drupa 2016—an event he traveled the world to promote as chairman of its executive committee—proves that there is no longer any excuse for "whining and crying about how bad the industry is." He also discusses how KBA regained its strength and forward momentum after several tough years of post-recession restructuring.
