Supporting sustainability and respecting the envirionment

READ OUR INTERVIEW with MR. JAVIER GAYA (CEO) from People&Technology.

Supporting sustainability and respecting the environment.
Working hand in hand towards a future where LESS becomes MORE.

We all can agree that the printing industry is not one of the most environmentally friendly industries, and we all know this reality.

It is however in our hands and it is up to each one of us, to work towards the protection of the environment not as a matter of routine, but as our own initiative. And at the same time, this self-conception generally leads to the review of processes that usually bring considerable savings in time and also costs to our companies.

In short, we believe that it is possible to generate profits by taking care of the planet.

We spoke to Mr. Javier Gaya (CEO), from the Spanish-based company People & Technology, a company that is very committed to providing solutions for exactly the kind of environmental challenge we are taking up on our heads.

Brilliant performance to the point at virtual.drupa

Digital inkjet printing of water-based overprint varnish as the final stage of print finishing - no problem with the RC1536A printhead from Seiko Instruments.

Seiko Instruments will be participating at virtual.drupa and unveiling the result of a collaboration between four companies - a small web press that selectively and precisely applies water-based glossy varnish to a pre-printed web by inkjet.

ACTEGA Terra GmbH has developed a glossy water-based overprint varnish for packaging applications on absorbent and non-absorbent substrates.

Water-based liquids are very demanding in terms of their behaviour during jetting and their drying properties. For this reason, the right equipment for applying the liquids is important.

For the Seiko RC1536A recirculating inkjet printhead, this new generation fluid technology is no challenge. The high flow rate within its recirculation system directly behind the nozzles enables the long "open time" needed to achieve high quality in a wide range of finishing applications.

Available for water-based fluids, the company's flagship printhead is now ready for textile printing and in particular the printing of high-quality embellishments, in addition to many other areas such as coding and marking, printing on corrugated board and 3D printing.

With its aNIR® technology, adphos Digital Printing GmbH has realised the complete drying of the water-based liquid in the shortest intervals.

And the machine builder and integrator for inkjet systems, ideeGO GmbH, has set up a roll-to-roll machine, in which their newly developed "Hive" print bar has also been integrated, on a laboratory scale.

This prototype has been continuously tested for several months now in the laboratory of Seiko's new service centre at their headquarters near Frankfurt (Main), Germany. The laboratory has been officially opened and the machine can also be visited in person.

There are many good print heads in the market, the service makes the difference.

Seiko Instruments GmbH expands its laboratory and integrates a platform for knowledge exchange.

In order to be able to support our European customers directly and promptly in developing their printing
solutions for a wide range of applications, we had already established a technical laboratory in our Paris
office in March 2017.
Today, just about 3 years later, our laboratory has already become too small to be able to continuously
support our customers to the extent we desire.

This shows how great the demand for prompt, individual service under expert guidance is. On one hand,
this has led us to expand our laboratory, but on the other hand, the idea of creating a platform for
communication has matured in us.
A platform that will now enable us to hold training courses and seminars; a meeting place for the exchange
of knowledge.

Directly connected to our parent company, near Frankfurt am Main, our new service center now offers in an
area of around 250 sqm both a modern well-equipped laboratory but also a training room for up to 30
persons.

In the laboratory, a drop analyser, equipped with a stroboscope and a camera with a resolution of 1292 x
964 pixels, enables the recording of single drops in flight. The camera is calibrated with an accuracy of 1
micrometer.
Based on the measurements of drop velocity, drop volume, drop shape, ligament length and the flight path
itself, as well as the determination of the quantity and the distribution of the satellite droplets, the
waveforms can now be adjusted in a targeted manner.
Optimally adapted oscillation pulses of the waveform generator generate printing results that are finely
tuned to individual requirements.
Test prints on a roll printer and a linear printing unit confirm drop accuracy and print stability.
The definition of an optimal drop formation is based on the target speed of 7m/sec @ a print gap of 3mm
from the nozzle surface, a stable flight and the reduction of satellite drops.

Fully certified by the Japanese parent company, we continuously test the compatibility of the ink creations
with our print heads in cooperation with the ink manufacturers.
Ovens are used to simulate the aging process of the materials, which are then observed under the
microscope for any relative deformation and with a high-precision weighing scale we can check if there is a
weight loss or weight gain ot the test materials.

Apart from the laboratory activities, our technical team also assists our customers in the development of
peripheral components for the production of complete inkjet printing systems and also provides support for
initial installations on site.
The highest level of expertise in the latest printing technologies enables us to offer a wide range of
customer-specific solutions.
In addition to the ISO 9001 certification, the laboratory will also be certified by TÜV according to the
international environmental management standard ISO 14001.
This standard sets out globally recognised requirements for an environmental management system and
includes numerous other standards, such as those relating to life cycle assessments, environmental
performance indicators and many more.

And our new training room?

Digital inkjet is relatively new in the markets, with viewer or no experience in the different applications.
Thereby making it necessary to discuss and develope new ideas with a complete open mind set, which
Seiko would like to bring on the table in the new training center.
Moreover the reliable technical service and the associated constant support we provide to our customers
has been one of our most important product features and is something we have always been comitted to.
Especially such a technically complex subject as digital printing requires an interlocking of all relevant
components and paramenters like the gear wheels of a clockwork.
The best printing results can only be achieved if problem solutions are viewed holistically, objectively and
purposefully, based on a sincere cooperation.
We would like to offer the possibility for this joint work in our company. Gladly offering the required
infracture for a technical cooperation with the various members of a project.

We are looking forward to welcoming you personally and working with you together in developing the future of printing.

We, Seiko Instruments GmbH based in Neu-Isenburg, Germany, were founded as a company in 1983 to handle sales in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Our product portfolio comprises micro batteries, quartz crystals, thermal printers and industrial printheads.

Approximately 50 employees in the areas of sales, marketing, technology and administration are responsible for expertly and reliably assisting our customers. Fast and efficient support is made possible by our international corporate structure.

From our modern logistics centre located next to Frankfurt Rhein-Main international airport we deliver our goods safely and speedily to their destinations all over the world. We have established a technical laboratory that enables us to test material compatibilities and simulate production workflows.

Our highly motivated team nurtures strong and lasting business relations with our customers thanks to the traditionally responsible way in which we interact with others.
