Printing

Inkjet technology has moved on from its messy, low-resolution roots. The newest printheads are replacing analogue technology in the decoration of everything from textiles to beverage cans; functional fluids such as paints and adhesives are being deposited digitally; and metal and plastic parts are being printed by manufacturers.

Progress in printhead technology and fluid chemistry has advanced, allowing industrial inkjet technology to make inroads into every type of traditional printing niche.

Alongside this, consumers of printed media are pushing for greater flexibility and faster delivery. This demand is driving down manufacturing run lengths for products and their packaging.

But the most advanced inkjet applications go far beyond decoration. The next wave of inkjet technology is aimed at a wide range of industrial processes requiring the accurate deposition of pico-litre volumes of material.

These materials are often viscous, dense and impossible to process with first-generation inkjet printheads. The applications range from 3D tissue engineering and advanced diagnostics to automotive painting and footwear manufacturing.

TTP bridges the gap that manufacturing organisations encounter when developing new product decoration, digital deposition or additive manufacturing processes. We work with clients from feasibility through printhead and printing system design to industrial implementation.
