The eco-system ESKO has developed is vast, and though this is just a fraction of what's being offered, Geert De Proost and Brad Leeds give you a guided tour of some of the products on display - quite cool seeing how the AVT camera system can detect and guide the operator in the QA process.

Digital Print Simulation · Frank Wolteri...

This was a truly great session. Frank Woltering from ESKO took me through a software offered by ESKO called Digital Print Simulation. In ten minutes, you'll get an idea of how Digital Print Simulation can help you in not only achieving better digital print of your customer's artwork but, maybe even better, setting the terms for what tolerances your customer accepts based on what technology is available. I've seen similar software before, but Frank Woltering shows how easy it can be done using ESKO.

Why Tilia Labs chose to be acquired by E...

There are always two sides to a coin, so in this Interview, editor Morten B. Reitoft talks to Tyler Thompson, Solutions Director and former co-owner of Tilia Labs. In the interview, we talk about what ESKO's acquisition means to existing Tilia Labs customers, but also how this will benefit Tilia Labs by being part of a large and exciting company. In the short-term, few changes. In the long-term, we believe that the Tilia Labs technology will find its way into ESKO packages and many more exciting things. Time will tell!

Juan Castells · Itaca @ #SeikoOpenWeek20...

At the 'Seiko Open Week 2022 event' people from all segments of the industry were represented. Juan Castells works with Itaca, one of the leading manufacturers of organic pigment. The pigments are used in both digital and analog inks and are quite interesting to learn and understand about the ink market - especially with a focus on tiles. Juan Castells also showcase examples of how other materials can be printed with the right mix of ink and printhead. The next venture is to digitally print vinyl and other products. Enjoy!

Emilio J. Estrelles · Projecta @ #SeikoO...

Talking to Emilio Estrellas was a good experience. Projecta is an Italian manufacturer of tile/ceramic printers, and while we in the graphics arts industry just started the digital transformation today the tile market is 98% produced in digital. Interesting to learn, and also show that talking digital and inkjet is more of a replacement market rather than a transformation market. Interesting!

EFI and Seiko have been partners for years, and for industrial printing, EFI relied on the expertise of Seiko. At Seiko Open Week 2022, Carlos Carrtalá Sanchis and a few of his colleagues joined the Open Week 2022 event to learn, share, and find inspiration.

At the Seiko Open Week 2022, Christian Goebel built a test printer to show how Seiko printheads can be used to print in all directions - from the side, from the top, and even from the bottom - quite amazing. ideeGO has among other things build machines that print on all the sides of plastic boxes, to support a comprehensive logistics solution. Jetting from the distance is also one of the things the Seiko printheads are capable of, which you can see in the video jetting on uneven surfaces. Learn!

Arne Ditscher · Cadis @ #SeikoOpenWeek20...

Truly great to talk to Arne Ditscher from Cadis - who we met for the first time in our #LearnWithUs webinar about Inkjet last year. At Seiko Open Week 2022, Arne Ditscher showed how Cadis can help customers develop industrial inkjet solutions enabling print on numerous surfaces, even 3D surfaces, and more. One of the VERY interesting this is an Inkjet simulator Cadis is developing. Imagine a database with printheads, inks, and even substrates with all the properties you can imagine. Now the emulator can take an object and emulate what printheads and inks are best for this particular application. An amazing software, and as you can understand, software that can cut down development time, and cost!

Stefan Kessler · Lambda @ #SeikoOpenWeek...

Stefan Kessler from Lambda presents in this film their NIR - or Near Infra-Red curing solution that is the perfect solution for water-based curing. With the right frequency of the bulb, the drying process starts from the inside of the ink and gives the printer a number of advantages. If you are printing with UV, you know that it's photo-initiators that react to the UV-light, and though low-migration UV and a broader frequency perspective open up for UV to be used with food packaging, water-based has numerous advantages. This film is good to get wiser on!

You see the marking every day. When you buy anything in a construction market each piece is printed with size, description, and a bar code - and in Europe, quite a few of the printers printing this come from Weber Marking Systems. For years they have used the Seiko Printheads and it seems to be a growing market as more and more can now be marked using inkjet.
