In your opinion, has the quality and performance of inkjet presses reached offset levels?

The judges for our InterTech Technology Awards indirectly answered your question in 2019 when they recognized two inkjet web presses: Oce ProStream 1000 (Canon Solutions America) and the RICOH Pro VC70000. Because of innovative inks and drying technology (and special pretreatment in ProStream's case), both presses can rapidly print a 20-inch web of commodity-grade coated and uncoated paper. Both print beautiful color with high-resolution heads and variable drop sizes and can personalize each image. While offset presses are still faster and can print unbeatable color, the capabilities of this new breed of inkjet press will accelerate the transfer of commercial jobs from offset to inkjet.
