Industrial Inkjet Limited (IIJ) have announced the next paradigm in wallpaper design and production; a full speed industrial wallpaper-production capability using digital technology developed in collaboration with partner Konica Minolta.
The solution competes with conventional printing methods on productivity, print width, speed, ink performance and cost-per roll. Attendees of the Pure Digital show, taking place at the RAI Centre in Amsterdam from 17-19 April, will be updated on IIJ’s development of this solution.
An example of a mural-wall image printed non-stop with no gaps will be part of the IIJ stand backdrop. Prints coming off its system are not restrained on image length and involve a wide range of typical wallpaper media, including paper, PVC and non-woven (coated and un-coated) – all printed at high speed.
John Corrall, founder and managing director of IIJ, said, ‘Our system is not just for low-volume mural applications, but we believe it makes digital print accessible and economic in high-volume mass production wallpaper production. When replacing older technology, the performance and cost are always key, but after that what defines how well the new technology is accepted is what you can do with it – what new abilities does it have and what opportunities does this give the user?’
