ESMA Academy: Industrial Digital Printing

Hands-on training and basic know-how
5-8 November 2018 | Stuttgart, Germany


Classroom training

The Academy offers a classroom/training environment with substantial practical experience. Participants will receive a fundamental know-how about the piezo inkjet process and accompanying topics such as inks, curing and colour management. All information is presented in a neutral fashion, pros and cons are examined, problems not left out.


In-depth overview

Goal 1: Participants receive a basic overview of digital printing technologies in general and a more in-depth look at the piezo inkjet technology. They will be able to decide for themselves if and to what level piezo inkjet or other digital printing technologies can be applied in their own production process chain.


Piezo inkjet technology

Goal 2: For participants who have already made first steps with piezo inkjet in their companies or who are at the beginning of an integration process, this course will provide deeper know-how about the different core technologies. Investment decisions within their organisations will thus be founded on acquired knowledge and the proper use of the technologies.
