GIS will present Direct to Shape Printing on Complex Objects on day one of TheIJC 2018, taking place October 16-17 in Dusseldorf, Germany. Organised by ESMA to showcase the global growth of inkjet, TheIJC brings together industry and academic leaders in their fields to speak about the latest advances and future developments driving digital print.

GIS, a leading technology provider to OEMs and system builders in the inkjet industry, has particular expertise in using inkjet for product decoration - now well-established for regular shapes such as cylindrical tubes and conical cups. The next step is to use robots to open up opportunities to decorate more complex, irregular shaped products such as industrial components (car interiors); retail products (motorcycle helmets); or even much larger structures.

Phil Collins, Director – Advanced R&D at GIS, leads projects that deliver the next generation of technology and innovation to GIS’s customers. Now his team has built on their experience with regular curved surfaces to develop methods for printing onto complex shapes. Phil’s talk will focus on the challenges and opportunities of working with robotic systems and inkjet, and report on the success of GIS’s work in this field.

Phil Collins commented: “The GIS approach is to give customers a rich toolkit of different techniques from which they can choose the tools most suited to their application. At TheIJC, we’re giving them a preview of direct digital printing onto surfaces using GIS technology.”
