High-precision digital printing

A PRECISION LANDING Print head nozzles jet microscopically small droplets of ink onto a decorated surface at high speed and with maximum precision. This computer simulation shows the “direct-toshape” digital printing process from the startup Velox. The process is controlled by software algorithms and dedicated hardware that precisely defines the spot each individual droplet must occupy. Velox, an Israeli company in which Evonik has held shares since 2018, has also developed special ink formulations for digital printing on plastics, metal, and glass. These innovations reduce ink consumption, improve sustainability, and open up new scope for creativity in packaging design through the ability to apply high resolution images to surfaces.
