FAQ: Industrial Inkjet

In theory, inkjet technology is simple – a printhead ejects a pattern of tiny drops of ink onto a substrate without actually touching it. Dots using different coloured inks are combined together to create photo-quality images.

In practice, however, the successful implementation of the technology is very complex. The dots that are ejected are smaller than the diameter of a human hair (70 μm), and they need to be positioned very precisely to achieve resolutions as fine as 1440×1440 dots per inch (dpi).

This precision requires multi-disciplinary skills: a combination of careful design, implementation and operation across physics, fluid mechanics, chemistry and engineering.

We are planning the launch in early 2021! If you are interested in learning more please join our waitlist.

Inkjet technology has become a household word through its presence on the consumer desktop as a low cost, reliable, relatively quick and convenient method of printing digital files. Although inkjet technology has been around since the 1950s in specialty printing, the impact of the technology in a wide range of industrial applications is only now becoming clear.
