DuPont Artistri Digital Inks is excited to announce its participation at the ‘Digital Print for Packaging US Conference’ in Santa Monica (CA). The hybrid event will take place from 6-8 June to discuss new products, technology advancements, and current and future trends in the digital printing world for package printing. Since 2012, this annual event has brought together brand owners, converters, press manufacturers, printing equipment suppliers, and packaging designers to get the latest updates on market dynamics and printing innovations.

According to the organizers, “Insightful sessions will cover digital print today and in the future, adopting digital print for the future of your business, improving quality and speed to market, building a more resilient supply chain and workflow, designing for digital, sustainability, eCommerce, packaging design, brand protection, smart packaging, and more.” Joseph Yourey, global R&D leader for DuPont Artistri Digital Inks, will speak at this year’s conference and show a presentation on ‘Inkjet inks for printing on packaging meeting the challenge.’

DuPont will discuss its development strategies in a panel discussion

Speaking about the conference and his presentation, Joseph says, “DuPont has been developing inkjet pigment inks for over 30 years, beginning in the home and office segment, adding textile, commercial inks to the portfolio, and now digital inkjet inks for packaging applications. In this presentation, I will discuss DuPont’s development strategies for creating high-performance inks to meet the printhead, printer, and converting requirements in packaging applications. I will also discuss several areas our technology organization emphasizes to deliver sustainable offerings to the package printing customers.”

On June 7, Joseph Yourey will also participate in a panel discussion on ‘Opportunities for the future of the digital print industry’ moderated by David Zwang, a principal consultant at Zwang & Company. “Aqueous pigment inks enable high quality, reliable and sustainable printing for packaging. However, there are several challenges to access this growth and provide sustainable products to enable our customers, which will be discussed in the session,” Joseph elaborates.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
