In many situations, digital printing is able to bring multiple benefits to a production process. The barrier to implementation of inkjet technology into new application areas is often understanding and managing the process considering all requirements especially if an “off the shelf” printing system does not exist. In today’s fast moving production environment, many situations call for bespoke solutions either on or offline from the remaining production line to allow a successful transition to digital print technology. Having a full understanding of each aspect impacting the final performance is often vital.
Built on many years’ knowledge of understanding the complete inkjet printing process based around our ink chemistry and application expertise, Sensient can help make your ideas a reality in any industrial decoration or digital manufacturing application.
Sensient has the experience in developing applications across the whole digital spectrum by ensuring a deep understanding of ink, software and hardware as well as impact of substrate and pre and post print requirements. Following the process allows us to link these technology aspects enabling them work together as a complete solution. This knowledge allows us to work side by side with customers and other integration partners to implement a robust production line solution.
Our team works in state-of-the-art inkjet laboratories with sophisticated inkjet characterisation equipment and test printing stations. Our visualisation and measurement systems provide full characterisation of the droplet formation process, while advanced optical systems allow quantitative analysis of printed samples to ensure optimum results from developed inks and inkjet printing processes.
All of the necessary equipment for mixing, milling, dispersion and filtration is available in the laboratory, allowing rapid development of new inkjet ink formulations. Fully developed inks are then transferred to Sensient’s scale up and ink production facility for volume supply to our customers.
