Hymmen showcases digital printing developments at IWF Connect 2020

 Monday, November 2, 2020

IWF had the influential motto for this year, ‘Digital instead of analog’ and Hymmen grabbed this opportunity to showcase their digital ability through IWF Connect 2020 – a substitute digital edition of analog IWF fair in Atlanta which was held between Oct. 26 and 30. Hymmen joined the digital fair IWF Connect 2020 and was happy to feature it´s latest developments in machine building at its digital booth.

Hymmen aims to be the customer´s technology partner for excellent surfaces. With that on mind the company continuously develops better processes and technologies. At the IWF Connect Hymmen features the latest innovations in digital printing technology:

  1. Digital staining for high end optical upgrading of real wood. With this technology digital print is used to shelter the real wood from the staining fluid. Afterwards the digitally printed transparent shelter can be removed again for a second treatment.
  2. The SATURN digital printing line for printing on décor paper with water-based inks at the production capacity needed at the customer´s production site.
  3. The advanced Digital Lacquer Embossing (DLE plus), a technology for digital structuring of flooring and furniture. With deeper structures and sharper edges – no matter if you chose a designed structure or a natural structure like wood or stone. Some customers call these surfaces “better than nature”; in any case the “best wood ever printed”.
