Needham Inks claims its high-performance digital inks could help reduce printing costs by up to 50 percent, when compared to OEM fluids

Increasing demand for high volume, wide format printing has led Whitchurch-based Needham Inks to develop and manufacture a range of high-performance digital inks, that they estimate can help reduce printing costs by up to 50 percent for printing companies, when compared to OEM fluids.
 
The new digital inks, which can be applied to a range of substrates, are suitable for a variety of wide-format printing applications, including building and vehicle wraps, vinyl banners, and signage.
 

While very few large-format printer manufacturers make their own inks they may well enlist another company to produce it for them

Aled Ellis, Needham Inks’ managing director comments: “While very few large-format printer manufacturers make their own inks they may well enlist another company to produce it for them. With OEM-branded inks being more expensive, printers are looking for cost savings by sourcing digital inks from a specialist ink producer such as Needham Inks.
 
“Our strength is our breadth of knowledge across all kinds of ink and printer technology, and the ability to work on projects of all sizes from small one off research and development ink projects through to long term contracts developing novel inks to fulfil a customer’s particular technical requirements. As well as off-the-shelf formulations, our dedicated research and development team can also work closely with printing companies to develop a bespoke ink that meets their technical and production requirements.”

Needham Inks currently produces over 3000 ink formulations, all of which have been developed by its own in-house team of chemists.
