Smart Inkjet Printing
High-speed direct inkjet printing technologies, nowadays offer opportunities in mass customization and flexible mass manufacturing. We optimize inks and inkjet processes for printing on textile. We use coloured inks for graphical applications or conductive and insulating inks for smart textiles applications. Furthermore, a robot-assisted inkjet printing system was developed to print onto 3D freeform objects like shoes. A specifical software ensures the communication between an industrial print head with the moving robot arm itself.
