The lecture will explain the advantages of the unique industrial inkjet printing technology that has been jointly developed by Ricoh and OLBRICH. Introducing the patented "wet-on-wet technology", it is most suitable for decorative products such as wall-coverings, decorative films, floor coverings, artificial leather and similar PVC-based products.
There is no need for specific ink reception layers, primer coatings or other pre-treatment of the printing substrate. The special ink is absorbed by and embedded in the freshly coated layer of wet plastisol. This single-pass technology is perfectly suitable for integration into existing industrial printing lines. It is furthermore available as a dedicated stand-alone printing machine, off-line or near-line.
