A line-up of industry leaders revealed innovations in inkjet technology for industrial markets to more than 300 attendees at the recently concluded ‘The Inkjet Conference’ which was held from September 30 to October 1, 2014 in Germany.

“Fast-paced developments in inkjet printing technology are opening traditional industrial applications to digital printing such as packaging, textile, plastics and many more,” said European Specialist Printing Manufacturer’s Association (ESMA), organisers of the conference.
