Topics covering low-cost production to product automation will be discussed and all questions will be answered by industry experts during a roadshow hosted by Thunderbolt Solutions. It will take place in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town and will take a deeper look into the inkjet world. Thunderbolt have secured international inkjet presenters from their various principals to discuss current and future trends.
According to Thunderbolt, indicators are that inkjet printing will grow exponentially over the next few years on all printed materials including packaging, because of innovative high-performance technology that is available in the market.
Thunderbolt has represented global leaders in the printing industry for over 20 years. They have been successful by continuously evolving and broadening their horizons and that is why Thunderbolt is now diving deeper into inkjet technology.
Focusing on market trends around the globe, it became obvious to Thunderbolt that inkjet technology will be key to the future of the print industry. This is why Thunderbolt has partnered with strategic digital printing brands and expanded its print solution offerings to the local market.
In this regard, Thunderbolt has announced that they have partnered with Agfa, Komori, Kyocera and Screen. With this extensive basket of inkjet technology, they can offer various solutions: from A3 and B2 cut-sheet to continuous-feed inkjet. In addition, they can also provide wide format inkjet printers and Point of Sale equipment for packaging applications.
In the current economic climate, printers need to minimise their budgets whilst maximising productivity. Digital printing offers easy-to-use workflow solutions that reduce downtime, increase automation and decrease the need for manual operation. The ability to print on demand lowers inventory costs and reduces waste. Maintenance is easier and there is no need for plate-making, blankets, pressroom chemicals or make-readies.
Print job and colour consistency are guaranteed due to artificial intelligence and smart monitoring of individual copies. Less reliance is placed on operator skill sets and productivity speed is unprecedented. Digital printing also offers complete variability and endless versioning, allowing for versatile and agile day-to-day operations.
Thunderbolt is excited about the future of South Africa’s printing industry and is ready to showcase its solutions to the market. The Digital Inkjet Roadshow in May will present the extensive benefits of digital printing to the market and allow printing companies the ability to gain firsthand insight into the suite of digital inkjet printing solutions.
