Digital Printing-Production Inkjet - Continuous Feed (Mono)
At the Inkjet Summit 2017, Midland Paper, Packaging + Supplies will present a case study for a fourth consecutive year.
After more than a year of public statements that Kodak’s Enterprise Inkjet division was for sale, the company has decided to keep it.
Following an in-depth management review of business operations and multiple discussions with prospective buyers, Kodak has decided to retain its Prosper inkjet business. "This is a pragmatic decision given the improvements in the business and the offers received," says Jeff Clarke, Kodak CEO. "Prosper performed well in 2016 with a 40% increase in annuity sales for the full year. We expect our Enterprise Inkjet Systems Division to be profitable this year, including our next-generation UltraStream investment."
Entering its 10th year as a printing technology, production inkjet hasn’t replaced all the volume from offset or digital toner printing technology. It has, however, become an indispensible tool in the arsenal of any print services provider and many in-plants. Some continuous-feed inkjet printers are on par with offset productivity. Others are reaching output quality levels nearing digital color press output. And new cut-sheet production inkjet printers are putting inkjet technology within acquisition cost reach for the first time.
The industrial sector is challenging industrial inkjet and printing in general to meet difficult technical demands. Therefore collaboration is essential in order for effective integration. Respondents to our surveys and in our discussions felt that this is a key industry issue.
