This handbook provides an indispensable overview of all essential aspects of industrial-scale inkjet printing. Inkjet printing, as a scalable deposition technique, has grown in popularity due to its being additive, digital, and contact-free. Given these advantages, the technology can now be used in stable and mature industrial-scale applications. As the mechanisms for inkjet printing have improved, so too have the versatility and applicability of this machinery within industry. The handbook's coverage includes inks, printhead technology, substrates, metrology, software, as well as machine integration and pre- and post-processing approaches. This information is complemented by an overview of printing strategies and application development and covers technological advances in packaging, security printing, printed electronics, robotics, 3D printing, and bioprinting. Important topics like standardisation, regulatory requirements, ecological aspects, and patents.

Readers will find:

* The most comprehensive work on the topic with over 75 chapters and more than 1,500 pages relating to inkjet printing technology
* The inkjet-printing expertise of corporate development engineers and academic researchers in one manual
* A hands-on approach utilizing case studies, success stories, and practical hints that allow the reader direct, first-hand experience with the power of inkjet printing technology.

The ideal resource for material scientists, engineering scientists in industry, electronic engineers, and surface and solid-state chemists,"Inkjet Printing in Industry" is an all-in-one tool for modern professionals and researchers alike.
