If there was any doubt that inkjet technology will become a dominant digital force for the future - the ordering of ten Fujifilm Jet Press 750S machines - adding to four already owned - by China's Tomato Cloud Technology, puts that doubt to rest. For a country dominated by Offset due to the long print runs, the adoption of large-scale digital inkjet is a significant step.
