KNF has supplied the drop-on-demand inkjet printing market with optimized liquid and gas/vacuum pumps since its infancy. Overtime, the market has developed, and we’ve accumulated an in-depth knowledge of these printing systems by working directly with designers to develop pumps best suited for several critical functions. We’re proud to have contributed to the market’s successful evolution, which now includes commercial printers and decorators, 3D printers, bio-material dispensing, single-pass printing, ceramics, and printed electronics.
