IMI's 13th Annual Toner Printing Conference will focus on the technology, market and applications challenges and opportunities that are facing the toner industry. Dry and liquid toners have been integral imaging materials for over fifty years. These toners have evolved in properties, composition and production over that period. During the past fifty years, other imaging techniques have been introduced. Some of these competitors still exist as specialty imaging devices. However, only ink jet has proven to have the combination of image quality, economics and versatility to challenge toner-based imaging devices. Improved print quality, expanding applications, higher resolutions, enhanced user expectations, etc. are all requiring improved toner based products to effectively compete in the digital printing marketplace. Additionally, the increased adoption of color digital printing, introduction of chemically produced toners, movement away from light lens based copiers, etc. are all placing new requirements on the toner industry. These improvements all require new or improved chemical raw material products to meet users' requirements as toner based imaging continues to evolve in a competitive marketplace. This unique conference program, IMI's only program in 2010 focused on the toner and toner raw materials industry, offers a unique opportunity for raw materials suppliers, imaging chemicals manufacturers, hardware developers and end users to join together and obtain a comprehensive assessment of the toner based imaging chemicals industry. There simply is not a better or more cost effective place to obtain the latest information defining the future of toner and toner raw materials.
