IIJ targets Pure Digital for latest wallpaper updates
The next paradigm in wallpaper design and production will be on display on the IIJ stand at the inaugural Pure Digital show, which will take place on 17th–19th April at the RAI Centre in Amsterdam.
IIJ will be showing a core part of its machine on Stand 117, Hall 12, as well as a full range of samples of various standard wallpaper media. The stand will also feature a mural wall image to illustrate the extraordinary capability of this new technology.
In addition, visitors will be updated on IIJ’s development of a full speed industrial wallpaper-production capability using digital technology developed in collaboration with partner Konica Minolta. The solution competes with conventional printing methods in terms of productivity, print width, speed, ink performance and cost-per roll.
An example of a mural-wall image printed non-stop with no gaps will be part of the IIJ stand backdrop. Prints output by its system are not restrained on image length and involve a wide range of typical wallpaper media, including paper, PVC and non-woven (coated and uncoated), all of which are printed at high speed.

John Corrall, Founder and Managing Director of IIJ, said: “Pure Digital in Amsterdam presents the opportunity for us to show our progress. Our system is not just for low-volume mural applications, but we believe it makes digital print accessible and economical in high-volume mass production wallpaper production.
“When replacing older technology the performance and cost are always key, but after that what defines the success of the new arrival is what it can do. We see Pure Digital as a way for us to contact wallpaper designers and other creatives and let them see what this can do for them. We hope to spark a real revolution in the décor market.”
UK-based Industrial Inkjet, a world leader for bespoke systems for industrial inkjet printing, is the official sales and technical support centre for Konica Minolta inkjet printheads outside of Asia.
John Corrall concluded: “We see this market as being at a tipping point now and, the right digital solution has the potential to dramatically change what wallpaper is.”
