IMI Inkjet Academy has been attended by over 3,000 people in the past 18 years. Presented by Mike Willis of Pivotal Resources and Dr Alan Hudd of Alchemie Technology, the course covers all the basics of inkjet technology.
Understanding the basics is essential to any industry’s development. The Inkjet Academy covers the basic theory behind the many types of inkjet technology used today and aims to give your understanding of the industry an expert start or update.
At the Inkjet Academy you’ll learn how printheads work, the materials used in their fabrication and the theory of their operation. You’ll also find out about how inks are formulated and used, as well as ink supply and support systems and much more.
The course assumes a basic scientific knowledge and is designed to provide useful background information for anyone entering the inkjet industry, seeking an update on today’s technology or looking for further fields of development.
FREE DISPLAYS & PRODUCT DEMONSTRATIONS
Product displays/demonstrations by course registrants are encouraged. IMI will cooperate with all interested parties to provide appropriate space so products can be displayed and demonstrated during the course breaks. There is no charge in addition to the course registration fee to have a display table. Interested companies should contact IMI President Al Keene email@example.com to ensure that proper arrangements are made for product displays and demonstrations.
IMI sponsors conferences and courses world-wide to assist in understanding technology developments, markets and applications requirements. IMI conferences and courses offer unique opportunities for leading hardware, technology development, consumables, software and user companies to learn, network, and develop a comprehensive understanding of current as well as future developments impacting successful product implementations, market entry/expansion, and technology utilization.
Since 1990, IMI has held over 600 programs attended by well over 25,000 technical, marketing and management personnel from companies around the world.
IMI programs are designed to enable attendees to obtain the latest technical, market and application information while allowing time to network with other attendees in a time and cost efficient manner. Attendance at an IMI program enables attendees to meet with an industry’s leading experts in a single location over a short period of time thus maximizing information transfer efficiency and minimizing travel and time expenses.
