Why not join us in the Marly Innovation Center, Switzerland, and co-create the future of digital production by inkjet?
The arrival of Epson at iPrint boosts the inkjet ecosystem that iPrint is developing at the Marly Innovation Center. It is worth mentioning that other players in the inkjet printing industry are already present either here or nearby. The site has a very long tradition of printing technologies, originating from paper manufacturing in the Middle Ages.
Our vision is to offer through this inkjet ecosystem to any interested company the opportunity to receive the necessary support for its inkjet and digital printing developments. On one hand, innovative technologies will be developed together with equipment suppliers. On the other hand, new inkjet applications will be developed thanks to the wide spectrum of equipment and materials that the members of the inkjet ecosystem can offer and create with us. iPrint connects people and knowledge to create innovations that contribute to valuable products for our inkjet ecosystem and to the well-being of society in a sustainable way.
We can count on a very multidisciplinary, talented and international team, on well-equipped laboratories with numerous research printers and measurement devices, on sound national and international industrial and academic networks, as well as on excellent engineers from our universities, that we are continuously training at iPrint. Informal exchanges within the ecosystem will allow us to foster innovation and co-creation.
Let’s inspire the inkjet printing industry, let’s challenge conventional technologies and let’s create the future of inkjet!
