Fujifilm Dimatix, Inc. has announced its participation in the 25th China International Ceramic Industry Exhibition.
At the event, Fujifilm Dimatix will use its exhibit at Stand C211 in Hall 5 to showcase its growing presence in the global market for digital ceramic tile decoration using inkjet technology. In 2010, this market amounted to about five million square meters of printed tiles, according to research firm IT Strategies.
Fujifilm Dimatix will also use the event to highlight its partnerships with many of the world's leading ceramics printing system manufacturers and ink developers. Visitors will be able to gather information about these partner companies, many of which will have a major presence and product demonstrations in their own exhibit space elsewhere on the show floor.
The ceramics industry exhibition, which is known as Ceramics China 2011 and runs from May 26th-29th at the China Import and Export Fair Complex, is expected to exceed 70,000 sq-meters across five exhibit halls and to draw more than 50,000 professionals from countries around the world.
A Growing Share of Digital Ceramics Decoration
"Fujifilm Dimatix has been marketing, selling and supporting printhead products in China for nearly 10 years. Our commitment to the many Chinese industrial markets has created accelerating growth in applications from wide format printing to industrial decoration," said Russell Brown, OEM Printhead Manager for Fujifilm Dimatix.
"Most recently, the application of our unique Drop-on-Demand inkjet technology is helping us attain a major and growing share of the market for digital ceramic tile decoration, here in China and in major industrial centers around the world."
"Our close relationships with leading ceramic systems manufacturers and digital ink partners have made it possible for us to gain share for this dynamic application of inkjet technology," Brown explained.
Company Information and Product Demonstrations
On its stand, Fujifilm Dimatix will display information about its drop-on-demand (DOD) inkjet printhead technology within the context of its 25-year history of performance and precision in inkjet technology. It also will provide opportunity for attendees to gather descriptive information about its well-known printhead product lines.
An advanced Dimatix Material Printer DMP 2800 will jet ceramic ink provided by Ferro used to digitally decorate ceramic wall and floor tiles.
The hallmark of the Fujifilm Dimatix Piezo DOD printhead design is that every jet can operate concurrently and at a high throughput rate without trading off drop placement accuracy – thereby enabling precision jetting at greater standoff distances, and at production speed. In addition, the durable materials Fujifilm Dimatix uses in their manufacture allow the company's patented printhead products to jet the broadest range of inks and other fluids at sustained high frequencies.
System Builders and Ink Partners
Several galleries on the stand will be used to display various types of fully fired, digitally produced, manufacturer supplied tiles that Fujifilm Dimatix printhead products help produce, including flat tiles, wall tiles and cove moldings boldly decorated with unusual colorants, glazes and materials. FUJIFILM Dimatix also is using the stand to highlight its partnerships with some of the world's leading ceramics printing system manufacturers and ink developers.
