Kodak Discusses Technologies Driving Growth of Inkjet Printing Applications at 15th Annual European Inkjet Conference

Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 2 - Advances in technology are expanding applications for continuous inkjet printing and paving the way for inkjet printing systems that will produce new offset class levels of output quality.
Gilbert Hawkins, Associate Director of Kodak's Research Labs, will share insights on the latest technologies at the 15th Annual European Inkjet Conference. Hawkins speaks on the opening day of the conference, which takes place Nov. 7-9 at the Sheraton Hotel and Spa in Lisbon, Portugal.
Recent Applications
Through innovative technology enhancements in color, speed and quality, continuous inkjet printing has expanded into a wide range of applications such as TransPromo communications, newspapers, packaging, book printing, and tracking and tracing capabilities. Another growth segment, hybrid applications, utilizes inkjet print heads mounted on offset presses to place variable data on materials as they're printed.
Future Systems
"The development and evolution of inkjet technology continues to accelerate, leading to the development of new systems that will produce offset class digital inkjet images and open up new growth opportunities for printers," said Hawkins. "Users can expect greater durability, gamut, speed and ease of use from these next generation inkjet systems, while enjoying total cost of ownership benefits."
Hawkins will discuss the technologies driving the unprecedented growth in inkjet printing, including microelectromechanical systems devices, new systems architectures, nano particulate inks, novel media, sophisticated image processing and workflow solutions.
The 15th Annual European Inkjet Conference provides participants with a comprehensive assessment of technology and market development trends that determine inkjet printing's role in the overall printing marketplace. The conference's formal speaking sessions and informal networking sessions provide a unique, interactive environment for leading hardware, consumables, components, system integrator, and user company representatives to network and develop an improved understanding of current developments and other forces that are shaping ink jet printing's role in the evolving digital printing industry.
