ESMA Academy: Industrial Digital Printing

Comprehensive Knowledge Transfer and Hands-On Training
21-22 March 2023 (practice)


Comprehensive training

Building on the success and feedback of 150 alumni since 2017, ESMA Academy now offers an online (theory) course and its practical continuation at the laboratories of Fraunhofer IPA in Stuttgart. The web training covers all aspects of piezo inkjet and provides a well-founded basis for the practice module. During the lab-based sessions, industry experts and academics accompany participants at work stations dedicated to ink characterisation, determination of print parameters, drying and cleaning mechanisms, print unit engineering and peripherals, evaluation of print quality and colour management.


In-depth overview

Participants receive a basic overview of digital printing technologies in general and a more in-depth look at the piezo inkjet technology. They will be able to decide for themselves if and to what level piezo inkjet or other digital printing technologies can be applied in their own production process chain. Delivered by independent consultants and scholars, all presentations are unbiased and no questions are left unanswered.


Piezo inkjet for various applications

For participants who have already made first steps with piezo inkjet in their companies or who are at the beginning of an integration process, this course will provide deeper know-how about the different core technologies. Investment decisions within their organisations will thus be founded on acquired knowledge and the proper use of the technologies.
