KYOCERA - NIXKA:  A pragmatic and ambitious contribution to the
ECO-DIGITAL Transformation of the printing industry


The transformation of the printing industry will combine 2 drivers: 

       - getting more and more digital (inkjet!) 

       - and getting less and less impactful for the environment.


As a contributor in the overall printing industry value chain, KYOCERA - NIXKA is engaged to make Production Inkjet one of the key technologies to get greener every single day.

Especially in critical sectors such as “fashion/textile” and “retail/packaging”, two of the four most polluting industries in the world and big consumers of printing and decorating, time is to react, to innovate, to change the game. 

Reduce Energy & Carbon footprint
  • Low energy consumption with optimized drying process

  • Designing printing solutions helping a decentralized manufacturing process (closer to end users)

  • Designing printing process without primer (inkjet direct to substrate)

  • Subcontractor policy with privilege for local partners (France and EEC) 



Reduce Waste
  • Printing the necessary quantity of products (no more no less) 

  • Integrate digital printing solution in-line with overall manufacturing process, for production on-demand, lean supply chain, reduced inventory and 4.0 factory approach. 

  • Use the minimum quantity of ink per print depending of the customer’s expectation

  • Printing process limiting the waste of paper or substrates 

  • Ability to propose upgrade kits for existing inkjet printers (extending the lifecycle with state-of-the-art print engine and re-use of robust chassis and transport systems



Use water based cleaner inks, and compatible with bio-substrates
  • Design inkjet printing process helping the use of recycled substrates (papers, cartons, fabrics, etc.)

  • Adapting the inkjet technology to the bio-substrates and bio-plastics compliant with next international regulations

  • Focus on water-based inks and avoiding solvent based, UV curable, or MEK inks

  • Develop the new generation of inks with mineral, vegetal or organic dyes and pigments
