I recently met with Anais Venet at Promethean Particles in Nottingham.
I talked to her about the kind of innovation they have developed with nano particles, and an innovative reactor that can produce a dispersed nano-copper, a material perfect for conductive inks. This challenger technology, I discovered was born out of Nottingham University and offers a unique opportunity for producers. I found out why.

Earlier this week, I visited the opening of the new 3D Printing centre in Nottingham headed up by Dr Neil Hopkinson. A more detailed story related to the journey of this innovative technology will follow soon, but the story is an inspiring one. The centre is designed to bring to life the inkjet based high speed sintering technology that has been a key part of the strategy for growth for Xaar into new markets.

From our research and our discussions, most recently at CCE, it is clear that there is a wall of fear that has been built within the converting industry which is slowing progress for inkjet. And this is mostly built out of misunderstanding and misinformation. Inkjet can, and will, play a larger role in packaging production. And those that prepare now for its integration will win in the future. This blog looks at the challenges and perhaps what needs to change in order for adoption to accelerate.
Well-designed packaging aims at better promotion, targeted marketing, and better sales. For the pharmaceutical industry packaging yet plays another critical role in ensuring the efficient distribution and eventually, the safe consumption of drugs. In this blog, Dr Marc Graindourze of Agfa outlines why this is the case and the role that inkjet is playing in this growing area.
