In times of uncertainty, it is with even greater pleasure that we can introduce new companies in the ESMA family. Among the most recent additions to the member community are Cadis Engineering, PrintFactory, Ricoh, Ruy de Lacerda, Tecno and Zeller+Gmelin. These names represent a perfect mix of screen and digital technology expertise and this is what they say about their motivation to join…

Cadis Engineering

Cadis Engineering is specialised in the design and manufacturing of custom inkjet printing systems. The core competencies are mainly in the fields of high-speed single pass printers for graphic arts with UV and aqueous applications in functional printing. We are at home in the areas of direct-to-shape and the integration and industrialisation of printing systems in complex production processes. We are also specialists in compensation technology and offer our customers a complete printing process development. Cadis customers come from the areas of packaging, automotive, graphic arts, as well as food and pharma. Our decision to join ESMA was primarily influenced by the possibilities of joint trade fair presence and the extensive networking within this community.”

“ESMA and PrintFactory have much in common. With their range of focused specialist software serving graphic arts, textiles, ceramics and décor markets, PrintFactory’s leadership team sees the great value that ESMA provides to the widest range of digital print manufacturers. PrintFactory offers specialist workflow software which enables everyday large format printers to print more accurate colour, better and faster – delivering better results for their customers, by adopting the right technology and using it for maximum effect. The result is lower costs, better use of resources, higher quality, more satisfied customers and a better printing environment all round.” 


“Ricoh decided to join ESMA to engage with the strong network of screen printers and to support the screen print industry to phase over to digital solutions. As a technology provider to the inkjet printing industry, Ricoh industrial print division wants to help customers to generate all possible benefits of going digital. The textile digital print business in particular is showing a lot of opportunities and Ricoh is developing  automated end-to-end solutions for direct to fabric applications. Contacts in this industry will help Ricoh to understand the detailed needs of the customer.”
