TheIJC, the world’s biggest meeting point for all involved in industrial inkjet technology is getting ready for their 2019 events, on 22-23 May in Chicago and 29-30 October in Düsseldorf. Developers, integrators, researchers, chemists, printers, brand owners, innovators and everyone else attending will receive a free day ticket for drupa 2020.
The cooperation between TheIJC and drupa dates back to 2014. Since then, The Inkjet Conference opens the doors to the core technology that is being rapidly implemented into a wide range of industrial print applications, served by machines on display during the drupa exhibition. „It is our great pleasure to support as enabling partner TheIJC in Düsseldorf and Chicago since the inaugural editions. The positive development for the second edition of the conference in Chicago clearly underlines the ongoing growth of inkjet into new areas and the significant potential for our industry in terms of new applications. Our engagement clearly expresses the long-term and very fruitful partnership with ESMA and the international inkjet community, underscoring the positive impact of that fast changing technology on drupa 2020”, says Sabine Geldermann, Director drupa.
The upcoming US edition of the conference features two tracks of presentations which cover all aspects of industrial inkjet engineering and chemistry, from printhead architecture and system integration, through to image quality software, ink formulation, waveform measurement, curing techniques and the latest research projects. Labels and packaging enjoy special focus this year with five sessions dedicated to direct to container printing, new solutions for product decoration, as well as market trends.
“We consider inkjet as a technology and inkjet as an application. In some areas the technology and the application can be considered as mature production processes, while in others this is still a disruptive technology with novel application fields. TheIJC has maintained its position as the event where all aspects of the evolution of both the core technology and the application are covered,” says Steve Knight, co-founder of TheIJC.
All delegates to TheIJC in 2019 will receive a voucher to redeem as a free day ticket to the drupa exhibition in June 2020.
