Members have access to an exceptional array of inkjet data and content that is continuously analyzed, updated, and expanded
Clear explanations of key considerations for evaluating inkjet equipment
The Paper Finder consolidates inkjet paper specifications from mills around the world into a single, searchable database. Search by paper characteristics such as basis weight, caliper, surface treatment, brightness, rolls or sheets, region, application suitability and more.
Where available, the Paper Finder cross-references mill-provided information with OEM paper testing data and our own Print Quality Analysis Reports to indicate if the paper has demonstrated performance on specific device and ink combinations. Data is continuously updated as paper formulations change and new papers are introduced.
Device Finder consolidates detailed OEM inkjet specifications in a highly searchable database. Search by characteristics such as OEM, ink type, paper transport, web width, duty cycle, MICR capability, speed, maximum resolution, head technology, application suitability and more.
Where available, Device Finder lists finishing partners and cross references devices with our own Print Quality Analysis Reports to indicate if specific papers have been tested on the device within tolerances for specific market segments. Data is continuously updated as new devices, inks and features are introduced.
Request for Proposal Checklists cover key factors to consider when constructing an RFP or preparing to evaluate competing bids. Checklists are added or updated monthly based on the continuing evolution of inkjet technology and release of new capabilities.
Here are just few of the scheduled segments:
- Defining Requirements
- Machine Configuration Factors
- Print Quality Analysis
- Ink and Consumables
- Maintenance Plans
- Developing Acceptance Criteria
Print Quality Analysis Reports
Print Quality Analysis (PQA) Reports quantitatively measure the performance of selected papers on a specific inkjet device and ink combination. Reports compare papers of similar type such as uncoated, inkjet treated and inkjet coated according to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that are relevant to a market segment or application type.
Reports may also be generated to highlight the difference in print quality between uncoated and inkjet treated papers of similar grade, and between inkjet treated and inkjet coated. New reports are continually being added as new papers and machines are tested.
