Technical Consulting

Torrey Pines Research (TPR) is the leading independent authority on the technologies central to digital printing and electronic imaging systems. These technologies include: Electrophotography (EP) (Xerography), Electrography, Inkjet, Thermal, Magnetography, and numerous hybrids.  

Additionally, these digital printing technologies are the enabling technologies behind TPR's expertise in the more generic field of material deposition (liquid deposition  and powder deposition) for other applications and industries.  

TPR stands ready and willing to provide expert guidance to help you weave your way through the complexities of matching technologies with practical business requirements (like making money).  

With the rapid advancements in the technologies and the continued commoditization of the digital printing industry, profit margins are being squeezed. Product development decisions have become more critical and complex than ever. Just several years ago, who would have thought that photo quality inkjet printers could be sold for under $50, that monochrome laser printers would be under $100 and deliver speeds near 20 ppm, and that color EP printers over 10 ppm would be under $500?

Up front consideration of the important technology elements influencing the product development program is key to its success. The tight rope between the available options, such as developing new and emerging technologies as opposed to utilizing and improving existing technology, requires evaluation of all influencing conditions to determine the right technology choices. TPR's team of experts are able to help customers during their decision making process. TPR can provide timely state-of-the-art, cross-disciplinary input to help its customers make the best decision.

TPR's bank of personnel can be drawn on to conduct studies to quantitatively evaluate technology direction, qualitatively discuss benefits and drawbacks and, then, recommend the best approach. The right versus wrong up front considerations can serve to make or break the entire development program and business outcome.
