In today’s technology driven world, digital printing has become a necessity regardless it is for business or personal. Advances in printing technology have no longer limited printing only on paper. They have allowed printing to expand to the whole spectrum to include printing on textile, ceramic, wood, plastics, many other substrates and lately 3D printing that can print the actual physical parts or tools ready to use.
At the same time, however, the technology advances also posted the greatest challenge ever to the printer OEMs, demanding them to develop innovative and high performance printers that can transfer whether inks or hot plastic materials or something else, at fastest speed per minute with highest clarity, brightest colors and long lasting to create images that closest to reality at an affordable price. Newer and hasher printing chemicals, such as colorant made of pigments or dyes and solvent based inks that can be long lasting, UV and fade resistant, water-proof and not , therefore, have been utilized to meet such challenges. Those harsh chemicals and solvent, often corrosive or evaporative, have created great challenges in product design for the OEMs and concerns over efficiency and service life for the end users.
