Digital glass printing

Application challenges

Architectural, appliance and automotive glass producers all require the ability to add tints, logos and decoration. Traditional glass printing and decoration techniques mean that short runs can be uneconomical, with limited flexibility to customise, making the introduction of new designs slow and costly.

Benefits of inkjet glass printing

  • Short set-up times and low set-up costs make short runs economical
  • Efficient make-ready process allows new designs to be introduced rapidly
  • Print-on-demand can reduce stock levels significantly
  • A wider range of designs can be made available economically
  • Non-contact process means breakages are eliminated, delivering higher yield at lower cost
  • Ability to print onto variable height surfaces enables printing of textured and non-flat glass
