ceramic printing

Adoption of digital technology in industrial applications

Digital printing using inkjet technology offers benefits across a wide range of industrial applications. These benefits include the ability to introduce new designs and products rapidly, defining deposition digitally so that it can be changed every time, depositing onto delicate substrates without contact, and depositing functional materials as well as just colours.

Digital ceramic printing using inkjet technology

Inkjet printing on ceramic tiles was introduced in the 1990’s and in its infancy struggled to establish itself alongside industry dominant analogue decoration methods. In these early years, inkjet’s penetration into the ceramics market was hampered by the inability to produce inks with stable formulation and printhead technology which could not support reliable jetting of layer pigments required for ceramic tile printing.
