We talked to Brian Gallipeau of Canon Solutions America about misconceptions around the impact of environmental controls and regular maintenance on the success of an inkjet printing implementation. Inkjet devices are quite sensitive to changes in humidity. Brian notes that there is a difference between the capabilities of a printer to optimize conditions inside the machine and the ability to control external conditions. Poor external conditions can quickly overwhelm the machine’s humidity and air quality controls. He also talks about the benefits of a disciplined maintenance routine on the potential capacity of your inkjet device. As always, he shares some great analogies for bringing the points home.
