In the process of development of inkjet printing, kodak and agfa, Fuji film, in three key areas of inkjet printing developed series of products, in this time are inkjet printing ink, inkjet print head and coloring.
But perhaps learned from electronic hardware business experience, they are going to through the sale of their own unique printing hardware or at least push inkjet consumables business.
Digital prepress once in the process of reciprocating struggle between hardware, prompting suppliers to increase investment to develop hardware.
By providing hardware and consumables, which play a role in the market the company is trying to fight for market share, to avoid being knocked out.
