In its 5th edition, TheIJC is established as an education and networking platform for over 500 OEMs, engineers, chemists, integrators, brand owners and researchers. 62 presentations on three tracks and 90 stands in the tabletop area provide a venue for all those who look into the future of digital printing. Leading authorities explain technologies which find way into the existing and future printing systems - for all industrial applications including ceramics, glass, packaging, textiles and others. Breakthrough findings enabling OEM equipment manufactures to address speed, quality and reliability are presented at TheIJC. Ink formulation, fluids, and the chemistry surrounding inkjet have their own track. Another conference track is focused on hardware and software, with the third track focused on academic research and innovation. The opening plenary sessions cover printhead architecture.
