Primer for Inkjet Printing
Digitally Printed Surfaces: Real Samples August 24 1:00 - 2:30 p.m
ATLANTA -Wood products manufacturers large and small are adopting inkjet printing at a steady clip, and for a variety of applications, including custom furniture and cabinetry, decor papers, decorative laminates, and retail displays. High definition inkjet printing direction on pre-coated engineered panel convincingly simulates fine wood grain on engineered panel, or can match decorative patterns from wall paper or other designs.
Interprint and Schattdecor, to name just two examples, have been producing decor papers using digital printing systems for several years. Interprint, whose decor papers and films are widely used in laminate panel and moulding production, inaugurated a high-speed, wide format inkjet system, the KBA RotaJET VL, for digitally printed decorative panels last summer.
In another approach and scale, Greenline Forest Products offers an Impressions line of digitally enhanced natural veneers, which includes "Infused Real Wood Veneers" using digital printing and UV curing technology. "This line can configure any real wood veneer with Pantone Colors of your choice," is how Greenline describes it. "This process allows you to create spaces and is an excellent choice for store fixtures, point of purchase displays, and cabinet faces." The Beaufort, South Carolina firm prints bookmatch, colors, and simulations of decorative inlays among many other creative techniques using digital printing.
