Profile: Camscience has developed a novel remanufacturing process for industrial printheads that enables them to be re-used in printing production indefinitely. Such heads have unit cost of between £2,000 and £10,000 and are a key component in all forms of industrial printing, including publishing, 3D printing, wide format printing of textiles ceramics and wall coverings. Compound annual growth for digital printing is nine per cent per annum.

Camscience's APRET process (Automated Printhead Remanufacturing, Evaluation and Test), has been developed over the past four years by former Hewlett Packard printhead designer and IBM research engineer Philip Keenan and the technology embodies knowledge gained in printhead manufacturing with techniques used in the semiconductor industry to remove contaminants from silicon wafers.

Camscience is based in Baldock, Hertfordshire an comprises three employees. With investment Camscience expects to grow the team to 10-15 employees to roll out the printhead remanufacturing business nationally and to begin exporting it's technology globally.
