Of the excellent technologies nominated for a 2020 InterTech Technology Award, eleven technologies were selected by the judges as being truly innovative and expected to have a significant impact on one or more segments of the printing industry.
An independent panel of judges deliberated over an outstanding selection of technology nominations that highlight the dynamic nature of the industry. More than half of the awarded technologies were digital presses and associated systems, including the first ever award for a textile press. Judges also recognized innovations in sheetfed offset press technology, web-to-print software, and solutions that streamline packaging print production.
