Welcome to the Department of Digital Printing and Imaging Technology

Head of the Department: Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Reinhard R. Baumann "Today's printers are equipped with advanced technologies to produce high-quality print products which are solely made to be recognized by the human visual sense. Future printed products will be equipped with functionalities beyond color, e.g. electrical conductivity and semiconductivity, optimized porosity or even electric power. With those functionalities they will be able to perceive their surroundings and their own state, save these data and communicate them via computer networks with other members of the "internet of things". The key for suitable industrial manufacturing equipment for these "printed smart objects" is the interdisciplinary development of complex inks, manufacturing processes and machine systems with integrated digital manufacturing technologies."
