Although demand has temporarily fallen from previous highs in some areas, the manufacturing and production capabilities of the industry’s sectors remain steady despite the challenges, with planning and development activities there largely continuing in readiness for post-pandemic recovery.
Today’s digital printing industry is stronger and broader than ever before. Several key trends are emerging as businesses incorporate more print types on different substrates—the largest of these being a growing inclination toward customization for clients.
Image-X of Saint-Laurent, Que., has become the first print service provider (PSP) in Canada to install the Jeti Mira 2716 HS ultraviolet-curing (UV-curing) light-emitting diode (LED) wide-format printer, manufactured by Agfa Graphics in Mississauga, Ont.
Three-dimensional (3-D) printing is a relatively new phenomenon for wide-format print service providers (PSPs), though the technology has in fact been around for more than 30 years and, over that period, has revolutionized many production processes in the world of manufacturing.
The digital printing of wide-format graphics is rapidly growing across North America. Market research firm InfoTrends expects volumes to rise from about 460 million m2 (4.9 billion sf) in 2015 to 849 million m2 (9.1 billion sf) in 2020.
Print service provider (PSP) Reprodux has purchased and installed Agfa Graphics’ Jeti Titan HS ultraviolet-curing (UV-curing) flatbed printer at its Constellation Court facility in the west end of Toronto.
The Digital Solutions Co-operative (Dscoop), a global community of print service providers (PSPs) that use HP graphics technologies, has selected Keith Wilmot as CEO. He succeeds John Rogers, who retired at the end of 2016.
