ESMA to Host Industrial Print Integration Conference on 18-19 May 2022 in Germany

17 March 2022: The European Specialist Printing Manufacturers Association (ESMA) is gearing up to host their first edition of the Industrial Print Integration conference on 18-19 May 2022 at Crowne Plaza Düsseldorf-Neuss, Germany. Representatives of all industry sectors are being invited to attend the conference to learn and discuss what screen, inkjet and other printing technologies can mean for the production processes.

There would be around 50 presentations during two days of IPI 2022 Conference. Each morning the conference opens with inspiring keynote speeches which show the potential of printing in modern market applications. Stijn Gillissen of Henkel will present the latest smart solutions enabled by printed electronics. Dr Yinghuan Kuang from the research centre Imec will talk about the perovskite coating design for solar cells and its upscaling in the industry. Two keynotes, delivered by Kuka and FPT Robotik, will highlight the integration between robotics, printing and additive manufacturing.

Special conference track is dedicated to the Paperonics project. Between 2019 and 2021, 40 European research centres and companies investigated the future of efficient, affordable and sustainable printing of electronic components directly on paper and plastics. During IPI, they will present the project’s results and demonstrate the first samples including RFID tags for e-logistics, sensors for tamper-proof packaging and temperature threshold indicators.

In a statement, Peter Buttiens, CEO of ESMA ,said “Industrial Print Integration features a combination of industrial and functional printing which enables more sustainable and more flexible production processes. New sustainable developments rely e.g. on perovskite photovoltaics or new solid state batteries. OLED technology begins to dominate the world of displays, while the global pandemic extended the need for monitoring sensors and fast diagnostic kits. IPI discusses the technology behind all these developments and shows print beyond its conventional purpose.”

IPI 2022 is supported by drupa and “Specialist Printing Worldwide”. Next to the high-level technical talks, IPI houses a networking arena of 50 tabletop stands, including 3M, Adphos, Agfa, Arcolor, BASF, Cadis, ChemStream, Covestro, CST, Dataphysics, DICO Electronic, Encres Dubuit, Dr. Hönle, Epta, Fraunhofer IFAM, Fraunhofer IPA, Fujifilm Ink Solutions, Fujifilm Integrated Inkjet Solutions, Global Graphics, Global Inkjet Systems, Grünig, Hasselt University, Heraeus, i4inkjet, ImageXpert, Industrial Print Solutions, Integration Technology, Kao Chimigraf, KNF, Kronos, Lambda, Marabu, Meteor Inkjet, Momentive, Notion Systems, Nur Ink, Pall, Phoseon, Quantica, RISE, Saati, Sefar, Seiko, Siegwerk, SignTronic, SPS Technoscreen, Stuttgart Media University, Sun Chemical, Thieme and Trijet. One of the supporters, the company CST GmbH from the nearby Krefeld invites all conference participants for a factory tour on the 17th of May 2022.
