Current research projects (in the field "digital printing")

Improving the printability and legibility of 1D and 2D codes in inkjet printing

Timescale: 01.04.2018 to 31.03.2020

The goal of this research project is to test the prepress and press properties with respect to barcode readability and focussing on High Speed Inkjet printing (HSI). [More information]

Common Colour Appearance

Timescale: 1.3.2017 to 28.2.2019

This project aims at developing an absolute metric for measuring consistent colour appearance also known as common appearance. [More information]

Integration of highspeed inkjet into the conventional production environments of the offset method

Timescale: 01.05.2017 to 31.10.2019

The planned research project will investigate in detail the performance range of current commercially available sheet and reel-fed inkjet systems. It will also identify typical applications or printed products that are traditionally offset printed. The products will be classified into appropriate categories, with which industry standard quality requirements will be associated. [More information]

Modelling of colour rendering properties for highspeed inkjet printing and the establishment of suitable characteristic values for paper

Timescale: 01.03.2019 to 28.02.2021

Suitable characteristic paper values shall be established in the course of this research project which allow to assess whether a readjustment of the printing machine would be necessary in order to reach the colour goal in advance of a paper change. [More information]
