Survival of the fittest: Why print manufacturers must become masters of innovation
In today’s digital area, faced with the stark reality of either reinvention or rapid decline, large print industry players need to rapidly innovate to survive and prosper. Quocirca’s Print 2025 study reveals that, despite almost two thirds of industry executives saying innovation is the key to future success and the considerable resources at their disposal, major manufacturers have a harder time keeping pace with transformation than start-ups. This is due to a combination of factors such as corporate inertia, legacy processes and systems, difficulty in getting buy-in for new technology from senior leaders, and a misunderstanding of the needs of ever more connected consumers.
On June 12 2019, HP opened the doors to its cutting-edge 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Barcelona, Spain. As it made one of the boldest statements for R&D yet to be seen in the 3D printing industry, HP hosted a small contingent of industry analysts for a tour of the advanced research and development facilities. These are packed with next-generation technologies, experts and engineers, all of a piece to disrupt traditional manufacturing supply chains through 3D printing and digital manufacturing technology.
HP Inc has released its 2018 Sustainable Impact Report, including an industry-leading goal to increase recycled content plastics across its print and personal systems portfolio to 30% by 2025.
