Décor printing has already had a significant inkjet revolution with the almost total conversion in Ceramics in five short years. This has perhaps led the inkjet industry to search for the next big thing. What will be the next market to do the same thing? Is this at all likely? Maybe a more incremental shift where inkjet plays a different role instead of that replacing the existing analogue technology. Take our survey and find out what the industry thinks!

And who said the summer was quiet? First we had Diamond Dispersions acquired by Lubrizol and now Cefla has announced their acquisition of Bergamo based industrial inkjet integrator, JetSet. We look forward to seeing JetSet at InPrint 2016 hopefully with their innovative Gate technology.
As a company, Thieme is an industrial print success story and a true leader in innovation. The company has effectively transformed itself from the world of graphic screen printing into industrial and has now integrated inkjet in their industrial printing systems. In this interview I talk to Simon Hebding about the company and its view on the market and the future for technology in this sector.
Helen Parry was formerly the Managing Director of Sawgrass and left at the back end of 2014, specifically to launch a new business called ‘Art to Life’. I talked to Helen about her new venture and what this business offers customers and why she has launched it.
The other day I read a clickbait headline, fell for it, and read about how 3D printing is “dead”. I had to read down into the article to see that the writer was really saying the consumer side of the 3D printing market is dead, but that’s why they call it clickbait. In this article Tim Greene of IDC outlines why.
The inkjet revolution in flooring has begun in terms of the integration of inkjet. In this interview Phil Jackman of SunJet explains the how the market is ready and why the structure of the industry is posing some challenges both from a technical and cultural perspective.

Insite have developed rapidly as a full service wide format print business, who are always pushing boundaries and exploring possibilities with their digital print equipment. I was interested to know how their market has evolved in the last few years and what new opportunities technological development leads them towards.
Decor printing, in particular flooring, is considered to be one of the 'next big things' for inkjet. In this webinar, Mark Hanley of I.T. Strategies, Phil Jackman of SunJet, Klaas Kackmann-Schneider of Tarkett and Melker Ryberg of Valinge discuss the challenges, opportunities and issues of inkjet with decor.
I recently visited Edale, a UK based international company located in Fareham, near Portsmouth on England’s south coast and met with Managing Director, James Boughton. The trip was a discovery of a company that has over the past 15 years changed considerably in terms of its business model, and doubled in size as a result. Traditionally Edale has been a manufacturer of print machinery for label printing. Their primary technology was always flexographic printing. And as a business they have been active in this way for 40 years. I talked to James about the evolution of the company and their plans for the future.
