Digital ceramic printing

Application challenges

The contact nature of the rotary screen printing used in conventional ceramic tile decoration leads to breakages of around 10% on each production run. In addition, long set-up times and high set-up costs make short runs uneconomical.

Benefits of inkjet digital ceramic printing

  • Non-contact printing means no breakages, ensuring each run delivers a higher yield, while the ability to use thinner tiles reduces costs
  • Short set-up times and low set-up costs make short runs economical
  • Ability to print on surfaces of variable height means you can print onto textured tiles and bevelled edges
  • Randomised image printing means no pattern repeats so you can replicate a natural effect
