Security Printing Conference To Be Held Next Week
The sixth annual security printing conference will be held next week in Baltimore in the US.
Centering on the printing of commercial and government issued documents, the conference will be held by the Information Management Institute (IMI).
The event will deal with such themes as the forensic issues of inkjet and laser printing technology, as well as debating the types of ink that should be used with each document in terms of reliability and efficiency.
New technologies such as colour-shift, photochromic and thermochromic inks will also be discussed at the event, due to take place from November 16th to 18th.
The importance of ink in the security printing industry was highlighted by IMI in a statement on its website.
It said that the current climate meant that the importance of preventing "economic losses associated with counterfeited products, documents [and] IDs" was paramount.
Dr Kay Jeong, technical inkjet manager at UK based Xennia Technology, will also be speaking, discussing the role, applications and future of inkjet in security printing.
