Vitrum 2015 Recap
While Milan, Italy is known as the fashion capital of the world, this year the city expanded its reach, drawing in additional visitors with the spectacular Vitrum Expo 2015. A highly respected international tradeshow for machinery, equipment, and systems for glass, Vitrum brought almost 20,000 members of the industry to buy, sell, network, and learn more about the latest glass innovations.
As the leading supplier of digital glass printers and digital ceramic inks, Dip-Tech took a prominent place on the show floor. It hosted an impressive booth and had a strong international team on the ground demonstrating the power of Dip-Tech’s technology innovation and business opportunity.
The booth itself drew significant attention in the halls of Vitrum with its impeccable design, which included images of digitally printed glass projects from around the world and a huge display of printed glass element, printed by Veneto Vetro, showcasing the high quality, high resolution, and wide range of applications made possible with Dip-Tech’s printing systems.
Shimrit Marom, Director of Marketing at Dip-Tech, shared: “The glass industry is seeking innovation and experiencing growth in the decorative segment. Digital ceramic glass printing offers a solution for many specifications and requirements, such as design flexibility, environmental considerations, with energy efficiency, and budget requirements."
Digitally Printed Glass Projects
Thousands of projects around the world have been completed with Dip-Tech digital ceramic glass printing. Visit the Printed Glass Project Gallery to see some for yourself.
Digital Ceramic Glass Printers
A heavy-duty Dip-Tech GP Series Printer was in action throughout Vitrum, demonstrating the powerful capabilities of these printers, including high image quality with the widest color gamut in the industry.
Tools to boost business wins
Dip-Tech offers glass processors a “toolbox” of design resources to help them win more projects. For example, Dip-CMiX – the color standard for the digital ceramic printing industry – is a swatchbook of simulated colors that can be achieved on glass by mixing Dip-Tech inks.
Printed Glass Applications
7 Meter Glass
A seven meter-long, photorealistic image with sharp details, printed by Thiele Glas, was on display. Printed applications demonstrated by the image include: color saturation and pantone matching, 3D effect, a variety of transparencies, patterns, gradients, and shapes.
Double Vision Glass
The Double Vision Glass printing technique – made possible by Dip-Tech’s Drop Fixation feature that allows for micro-drop precision – creates two images printed onevon top of the other, allowing different views from each side of the glass.
Slip Resistance Ink
Dip-Tech Slip-Resistance Inkcreates a smooth finish, making it suitable for both residential and commercial spaces.
A story from the field
Dip-Tech took the opportunity at Vitrum to host an exclusive event at its booth. Giorgia Giacchetto, owner of Veneto Vetro, from glass processor Veneto Vetro, and Giorgio Strappazzon, an architect at VS Associati, presented a project they produced together using Dip-Tech digital ceramic glass printing – the signage for the Botanical Garden in Padova. The technique of digital ceramic glass printing was chosen because of the garden’s particular climate conditions. “The high temperatures and continuous humidity required a guarantee for durability and quality of the images as we were creating a permanent exhibition in this public space,” said Strappazzon. He noted that he chose to work with Veneto Vetro because “They are always striving for innovation, new possibilities in the glazing market and new forms of expression.”
Giorgia Giacchetto added, “We offered VS Associati a solution for their external façade glass. Once we understood the additional solutions they were seeking for the interior glass, we understood that digital printing was exactly what was needed.” Plus, she knew Dip-Tech was the perfect partner for making the project a reality. As she commented, “Dip-Tech is always supportive, and their glass design specialist helps make our customer’s visions a reality”.
