❤️️Wow I Was Wrong, Solvent Ink Is Not Going Away! October 23 2017, 1 Comment

I was to see growth in the solvent ink category.  Especially mild-solvent inks.

 

Somehow the market pundits got it wrong.

 

I have five (5) explanations.

 

Konica managed to wire up their 512i and 1024i printheads to print in one single-pass. Breakthrough productivity.

 

512i and 1024i spit up to 8 drop sizes. Big color gamuts.

 

512i and 1024i fire at 13 picoliters. Crazy resolution on 5m machines!

 

Today's mild-solvent ink formula is not so smelly anymore.

 

512i and 1024i are sold in the aftermarket.
