Seiko Instruments says it is very much looking forward to finally appearing live again at InPrint after such a long time and has again brought exciting integration examples on board. Once again, ideeGO, a machine manufacturer and integrator for inkjet systems, will be there. This time with a prototype that prints vertically with a print gap between the print head and the substrate of more than 10 mm.

Whether vertical, horizontal or even from below – digital inkjet printing from all conceivable print directions – these are not a problem for the recirculating RC1536. With its machine ‘Backtrack’ – People & Technology from Spain impressively demonstrates how easy it is to code and mark from bottom using the RC1536.

People & Technology is diversifying into new sectors and markets with Backtrack which is one of the latest products it has developed. The company says Bactrack challenges the laws of digital printing written so far, with the new system it has developed making it possible to print on the reverse of current systems, which enables high-resolution printing in areas that were previously inaccessible.

The integrated advanced printing software allows production traceability, printing dynamic designs in which the image changes as the units go through, bar codes, QR, the date, time and personalized labels. The versatility of working with different ink formulations has sparked interest and is being warmly welcomed in other industrial sectors. Its small size helps integrate it into any part of the production system.

C-marx, a system integrator from Chemnitz that specialises in the field of additive manufacturing, will show a teaser of what will be unveiled at Seiko’s second OpenWeek in June. A robot arm created in cooperation with the Fraunhofer ENAS Printed Functionalities department that can apply coatings to almost any two and three-dimensional substrates.

Seiko Instruments will be at stand 2764 in Hall A4 at InPrint. The company is looking forward to welcoming show visitors after a long time.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
