Digitising the printing process for flooring, furnishing and other functional and industrial applications
Digital printing technologies are growing exponentially from mature markets such as graphic arts to strong growth areas including textiles and labels. On the back of these success stories, there is a further revolution, with digital printing being adopted as a manufacturing tool, not simply to add design or colour but as a key part in a process to get to a product. Such processes may involve deposition of functional or performance material onto a substrate within a production process. Adoption of digital printing is leading to increased efficiency, reduced waste and often more environmentally-friendly considered products. In the presentation we will discuss a few areas where digital technology is expected to play a growing role.
