On November 5 and 6, 2019, the Institute of Printing Science and Technology welcomed the working group “Innovation Pad Printing”. The meeting took place for the first time at the IDD, where Prof. Dörsam presented the institute and current research work to the members and talked about starting points for future cooperation. Presentations by Mr. Ahmad Al Aboud on the simulation of printing pads and by Prof. Blaeser on BioMedical Printing Technology gave a deeper insight into current work and research topics.
The working group was founded in 2013 and consists of experts from all areas of the industry. Among them are experts from the fields of data preparation, printing plate production, ink and machine production, printing plate production, pre-treatment and drying specialists and cleaning systems and from the scientific field the IDD of the TU Darmstadt. The aim of this platform is to jointly create a network, better communication and thus advance the pad printing technology. The working group provides every year a seminar, which consists of different lectures from current and innovative developments. The seminar also includes a table top with practical applications that invites participants to network and discuss problems.
