GIS and Sakata INX collaborate on inkjet projects worldwide to help end users in transitioning from analogue to digital printing

Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) and Sakata INX Group have announced a new partnership combining their expertise in ink and workflow technologies to help end users and major OEM companies in transition from analogue to digital printing.

The two companies believe that working closely together at the early stages of large strategic projects will be beneficial to their customers. The partnership will focus on close links with printhead manufacturers as printhead and ink selection are critical factors during the development phase, particularly for applications such as packaging, which have very demanding print requirements and regulatory conditions.

 ‘At the start of any new project, we discuss whether a suitable ink has been identified for the application and substrate,’ commented Debbie Thorp, business development director at GIS. ‘It is often an afterthought and yet is so critical to the success of a project. So, when Sakata INX approached GIS last year to discuss a more integrated collaboration on some key projects, we were happy to agree. Together we can offer a powerful proposition to finding solutions to complex and demanding projects and helping companies transition from analogue to digital printing.’

Hiroshi Morita, senior executive officer and general manager of digital and specialty products division at Sakata INX added: ‘Sakata INX is uniquely positioned to assist its customers with the right digital inks, consultation and service for a wide variety of applications employing an even wider array of digital printers and substrates. We selected GIS as a key partner to provide complete workflow options for industrial digital printing. GIS and Sakata INX see opportunities to collaborate in several sectors and engage in projects with potential customers.’
