While walking around Print 13 yesterday it seemed that again this year inkjet was dominating the headlines in several areas. No longer was it just the high-speed digital inkjet presses from HP, Xerox, Kodak and Canon, now several new companies have jumped into the market. I came across the new KM-1/IS29 Inkjet Press from Komori and Konica Minolta which runs a 23 x 29 inch sheet. The press release is below to provide you with some additional information. I see this press taking over for many of the 29 inch offset presses because of its ability to produce variable data at a larger sheet size.
Will digital inkjet take over offset? Let us know what you think below.
I wanted to leave you with one other valuable piece I came across at Print 13 and that is a white paper from HP on how color is receiving a higher ROI. I would recommend you download the white paper below.
