Event Detail

Printing for Fabrication 2018

The 34th in IS&T’s digital printing (NIP) conferences takes place in Dresden, Germany. The conference is a leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies.

As a comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. Digital Fabrication explores the potential of digital printing technologies with sessions on new applications and materials that go well beyond traditional printing. Digital fabrication techniques have been used for biomedical applications, as well as to produce MEMS and new electronic devices. Conference topics include 2D & 3D functional printing and micromachining; digital fabrication instrumentation; ink jet printing processes; laser patterning processes, direct-write, and integration in printing manufacturing lines; process materials and substrates for digital fabrication; nano-patterning and imprint technologies; prototyping technology; printed sensors, photovoltaic cells, lighting devices, biomaterials, architectural components and electronics and devices; and industrial and commercial digital fabrication.

Conference Topics Submissions in the following areas are encouraged:

  • Printing for Graphics and New Functionalities 
  • Quality Control of Prints and Objects
  • Recent Advances in Materials for Printing and Additive Manufacturing
  • Lab2Fab Challenges 
  • Inkjet Printing for Textiles and Nonwovens
