Inkjet printing holds the key to future success, says Xerox

High-speed continuous-feed colour inkjet has emerged as the most significant digital print market in the past few years. Yet having been a leader in the development of digital print, Xerox was notable for its absence. That changed last week with the company's acquisition of French inkjet developer Impika.

Technology patents: worth the paper they're printed on?

Last week, inventor Michael Wilcox stood outside of the Houses of Parliament and set fire to a patent for an 'innovative colour printing technology', claiming it had been made worthless after, he alleged, a number of print and packaging companies infringed his patent.

'Inkjet Drupa' faces a new challenge: the Xeikon Quantum

Conventional wisdom has it that Drupa 2012 will be all about inkjet. Tell that to Xeikon, which last week announced a disruptive technology aimed at the high volume, low cost, digital print market. Like the rest of Xeikon's presses, the Quantum will be...

Print & digital media will coexist for many years to come

The recent release of ABC figures regarding net circulation of magazines between July and December 2011 painted a dark picture for the print industry.

As another major print show rolls around, the industry is busy assessing exactly what this year's Drupa will be focused on. While no individual theme has emerged as a stand-out leader, there is a feeling that one trend in particular will continue: the increase in digital products at the expense of litho.

In-plants blur the boundaries between public and private
