Report on Inkjet Applications

Manfred Werfel's picture

In the summer of 2016, the World Printers Forum launched a new microsite on digital newspaper printing as part of the “Insights” section of the WAN-IFRA website. Digital inkjet was one of the dominant technical topics at the Drupa 2016 exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany. New inkjet printing plants opened in Switzerland, France and the UK, and are planned in the USA. The new WAN-IFRA site collects all kinds of information on the subject, including articles, press releases, research reports, videos, pictures and conference presentations.

The WPF Board considered it to be of special importance to investigate the present and future areas of application of digital printing for newspaper publishers and printers. Therefore the focus was less on technical specifications and performance data, which in any case change as development occurs, and more on concrete, economically viable and innovative business sectors that, with the aid of digital printing in a newspaper environment, are today already of significance in practice or that could become important in the future. The Report can be downloaded from the WAN-IFRA website.
