Magnetography emerged in the late 1980s as one of the most reliable, high-speed non-impact printing technologies available. It was developed by Bull after a ten- year research and development effort. This presentation describes its development path, from its magneto-electric roots in the mid-1800s to present-day machines that are capable of printing well over one hundred pages per minute.
The major topics covered will be: the anatomy of a high-speed magnetographic printer, with reference to the mechanics of the printing process; applications and the market potential for the technology; and market trends for the 1990s.
