In late July, Printing Industries of America (PIA) introduced 10 recipients of its 2015 InterTech Technology Awards program, which the association has been running since 1978. PIA explains that more than 80 percent of technologies that receive an InterTech Award experience continued commercial success in the marketplace.
The PIA continues to explain technologies receiving the 2015 InterTech Award have been judged as truly innovative and are expected to advance the performance of the graphic communications industry in the near future.
An independent panel of judges deliberated over technology nominations by various suppliers to determine this year's recipients, which include developments in high speed web and sheetfed colour inkjet presses, digital finishing equipment, the use of metallic foil, patterning for optimal flexo ink laydown, and a portable spectrophotometer for use in the pressroom. The 2015 recipients also include technologies designed to facilitate cross-media marketing campaigns, use of a new standard to define and communicate brand colours, and the integration of production and business processes.
