The growing trend towards product individualization is giving rise to a flood of new surface technology processes and solutions. These include everything from sanding, brushing, pressing, rollering, spraying and polishing to 3D and digital printing. Digital printing is perhaps a special case among these technologies because it provides a cost-effective means of responding swiftly and flexibly to short-term fashions and trends.

The surface technology sector offers a range of innovative technology solutions to meet today’s growing demand for product individualization. LIGNA 2019 will put the spotlight on this exciting growth area, including its close tie-in with Industry 4.0-style intelligent manufacturing and finishing technologies – including digital printing and 3D printing. Adhesives, liquid coatings, inkjet and digital printing are surface technologies with major growth potential. Digital printing technologies were in fact already on show at LIGNA two years ago and are set to become a mainstay of the show, which is why LIGNA’s organizers have decided to make Smart Surface Technologies a keynote theme in 2019.

Energy and resource-saving coating systems are attracting increasing attention. However, of all the various themes and market developments, the global spotlight in the coming years will no doubt be squarely on the digitization trend. New digital technologies, along with increasing quality and environmental requirements, will be the main drivers of innovation in the foreseeable future. In the surface technology market in particular, providers of innovative, high-quality resource-efficient solutions can expect to benefit from surging demand.
