Inkjet Design

Bill Dorner started his career designing inkjet test equipment for AT&T® and quickly moved on to Videojet® Systems in the early 1970’s. As an electronic engineer, Bill designed the first packaging inkjet printer, called the Videojet® Model 9000. It became the industry standard, and in its early years was used to print on aluminum cans at speeds of around 2000 cans per minute. Bill also made important advances for addressing in the graphics markets, designing the world’s first inkjet addresser for RR Donnelly® in the early 1980’s. This technique provided some of the most sophisticated target marketing of its day for graphics, printing, and packaging production lines.

Inkjet Sales and Marketing

From designing inkjet printers, Bill moved to sales and marketing of Videojet® inkjet printers and their associated fluids. He has visited over 1000 different applications ranging from the very slow printing of wire harnesses, to the high-speed printing of various packaging lines, printing Boeing® white wires for airplanes, and numerous food and beverage can applications to 2000 cans per minute. In addition, Bill reviewed many high-speed webs at various printing companies. Throughout his career, Bill has gathered extensive knowledge of inkjet nozzles, inkjet inks, makeups, washes, cleaners, and other related inkjet printing fluids. Dorner Associates specializes in the markets most used by Videojet®, Willett®, Linx®, Hitachi®, Domino®, Imaje®, and the Drop-on-Demand inks for Marsh®, Diagraph®, and others. In short, Bill knows what it takes to successfully print on your product.
