TheIJC 2016 unveils the extensive conference agenda

IJC15 CT9578

With less than a month to go, The Inkjet Conference (TheIJC) confirms the most involving agenda in the event’s history. Over 50 presentations, 6 workshop sessions and countless networking opportunities at almost 70 tabletops will fill the Swissotel in Düsseldorf/Neuss on 4-6 October 2016 and engage hundreds of developers, technologists, researchers, innovation managers and decision makers.

TheIJC is organised for the third time by ESMA, sponsored by MS Italy and developed in partnership with drupa. “drupa has supported TheIJC since its inauguration in 2014 and since then we observe how the core technology and know-how presented at the conference evolve into world leading digital presses displayed at drupa. We see all aspects of print and pre-press evolving into a single system. Breakthroughs in chemistry evolve into new ink sets, advances in computer science improve image quality, new image inspection systems create opportunities for functionality and control. And of course inkjet printheads are still at the core of digital print and here we see new product launches and better understanding of integration”, says Steve Knight, co-founder of TheIJC.

Whilst “drupa 2016 – touch the future” is behind us, the innovation cycle turns further at the conference which is open to all those looking to build the future: engineers, scientists, leading equipment manufacturers from various industries. This year, significantly high numbers of new players decided to join TheIJC and gain a glimpse of the new era of digital printing. One-fourth of the tabletops has been booked by first-time exhibitors, including Barbieri Electronic, Baumer Inspection, Clariant, Crown Van Gelder, DPS Innovations, Inca Digital, KIWO, Megnajet, Nazdar, Netzsch, RJA Dispersions, Smithers Pira, STS Inks, Techkon and Velvet Jet. Simultaneously, almost 60% of the delegates registered so far have never attended the conference before – they will represent companies such as Bühler Group, Cadis, Comexi, DELO Industrial Adhesives, Jindal Films, Nilpeter, Sinocolors, TechNova, Todeschini and many others.

TheIJC 2016 starts already on the 4th of October with a series of inkjet workshops chaired by industry experts and renowned researchers. Last workshop places are still available for all conference delegates who won’t delay their booking. The six hands-on session are organised around following topics: introduction to inkjet, waveform tuning, colour management, functional fluids, speciality effects in textiles and inkjet in packaging.

The conference part opens on 5th of October with presentations by Sean Smyth (“Inkjet market developments in print and packaging”) and Jane List (“10 things you should know about patents”) on two parallel tracks. Altogether 52 highly technical talks will take place during two days, in sessions separated by networking breaks, among others – the exquisite networking dinner at the end of day one. Focusing on all aspects of inkjet engineering and inkjet chemistry, the programme offers presentations on printheads, inks and lab equipment, integration, inspection, software and electronics, curing and drying, as well as intellectual property. Core inkjet technology is adopted for different industries and therefore a number of experts on packaging, textiles, additive manufacturing and microelectronic components will present, as well.

Excelitas introduces omnicure ac5 series uv led curing systems

OmniCure AC575 AC550 SILO 4x4 rgb WEB

High Peak Performance Enables Faster Line Speeds and Reduced Costs

Excelitas Technologies® Corp., a global technology leader focused on delivering innovative, customised photonic solutions, introduces its new OmniCure® AC5 Series UV LED systems for small area curing. Designed with a unique combination of high output LEDs and custom optics, the OmniCure AC550/P and OmniCure AC575/P air-cooled UV LED curing systems provide high irradiance (14W/cm2), enabling manufacturers to achieve outstanding productivity while the long lifetime and lower electrical consumption of the LEDs reduce running costs.

The OmniCure AC5 Series LED systems provide a reliable UV light source for curing inks, adhesives and coatings in industrial and electronics manufacturing applications, and printing applications such as labels, bar coding and package printing. They feature very high irradiance LED technology that can cure adhesives at a low temperature, which is needed for sensitive components used in medical device and electronics manufacturing.

The OmniCure AC550/P and OmniCure AC575/P provide 60 percent higher output compared with Excelitas’ OmniCure AC4 Series with similar benefits, including consistent and even curing with excellent uniformity across the full LED area. These curing systems are easily integrated into any workstation with no additional venting, ozone extraction or chillers required, and can be automated for increased productivity. Using highly efficient LED modules, both AC4 and AC5 Series systems feature narrow LED wavelength output and lower temperature curing compared to arc lamp systems for reduced power consumption and increased yields.

The AC5 /AC5P high-power, air-cooled UV LED curing systems provide high irradiance and exceptional optical performance that enable fast line speeds in both industrial manufacturing and printing. The print versions are equipped with a replaceable outer winder required for printing applications at close working distances, or with custom lenses to provide the highest irradiance at flexible working distances for specific applications. They are an ideal solution for rapid small- to medium-sized surface area curing.

Dr Tanja Bizjak from Excelitas will hold a presentation “Improving surface cure with UVC LEDs” during TheIJC 2016.
