An interesting question to which everyone wants to know the answer. Inkjet has made rapid progress into several markets so far, so can this be repeated in new markets in the future? Martin Schoeppler is President and CEO of Fujifilm Dimatix and is in a great position to look at the future, as Dimatix is probably the leading supplier of inkjet printheads today. He will be speaking at the IMI Europe Inkjet Printing Conference 2015 this year.
The current trend is towards printheads manufactured using silicon MEMS technology. Dimatix were an early leader, announcing their Si-MEMS technology in 2008. Martin is going to describe how this technology has enabled expansion in many directions. He also believes that the printed electronics application is made for inkjet.
