• The Inkjet Circle

    The Inkjet Circle 2019


    Inkjet is not one technology, it is a symphony. No instrument plays in isolation and harmony can only be achieved with all elements interacting. Each technology contributes, each component is needed, but a single substitution or alteration introduces a chain reaction causing many changes to be required to bring the system back into balance.

    A balanced inkjet system has outstanding performance and reliability, and it is changing the way we print. Just as the “inkjet circle”, TheIJC offers guidance for both newcomers and professionals from different domains who want to broaden their know-how. Inaugurated in 2014, the event has grown to the world’s largest inkjet knowledge platform for key industry players and leading research institutes. Their cumulated expertise provides for a strongly technical conference programme and unique networking opportunities.

    We often focus on just one element of “inkjet”, either highlighting the importance of the ink or the printhead. The reality is, the inkjet system is many more components as shown in the mind map below. Only the selection and integration of these components together with a strong understanding of the application can bring about a successful product.
    At The Inkjet Conference we work with technology and market experts from many different fields bringing together a strong conference programme with expert workshops and short courses to help develop the next generation of inkjet systems and to prepare the market and brand owners for this disruptive technology. In addition to the presentations and workshops, leading experts are available for discussions in the networking arena, ready to discuss your ideas and offer solutions and experience.
