THIEME LAB D installed at Printing & Media Dept, University of Applied Sciences
26 November 2020: Manufacturing processes are increasingly characterised by digital networking, automation and the highest quality standards. Technological developments on the path towards e-paper are expected to involve substrates with integrated digital properties in the future. In functional printing, newly developed materials are processed into complex components that are used in fields such as logistics, electronics and security technology. And, manual production processes are a thing of the past. Image and text data, along with related business information, are now exchanged digitally via the internet between industrial customers and printing companies.
