Cabot® to increase production capacity of Inkjet printing
Cabot Corp. attempts to increase production capacity at its inkjet facility in Haverhill, Mass., by the end of 2012. An investment of $10 million is expected in this respect.
Characteristics of expansion:
The characteristic features that indicate a bright future of the said expansion are the followings:
• The expansion started earlier this year.
• Cabot is aiming to increase the capacity of its CAB-O-JET(R) color pigment dispersion and polymer product lines by 100 percent, by means of this expansion.
• The expansion hopes to strengthen Cabot's leadership position in aqueous pigment dispersions. These are used to provide black, cyan, yellow and magenta colors in most of the current inkjet printers.
Inkjet printers have started penetrating the office market due to the tough competition given by laser printers. Providing full color printing at low cost and causing low energy usage, thereby adding up to environmental benefit, has further increased the popularity of inkjet printers.
With the salient character of incorporating more colors in the printing process, inkjet printing gradually won over the needs of personalized printing where traditional analog printing could not leave an impression.
Fred von Gottberg, Cabot vice president, New Business Segment, said, "This expansion will support the rapid growth in inkjet that we see in both the office and commercial printing segments. With an increased demand for color printing, personalized content and short runs, we believe that inkjet printing has become the best, most cost-effective solution."
The CAB-O-JET line of products excels in printing due to their performance, durability and flexibility.
With so many aspirations lining up, the planned investment to expand the production capacity of inkjet printing technology instigates high hopes of a positive result. The world eagerly awaits the implementation of the project in 2012, as promised by Cabot.
