Lexmark Inkjet Thickfilm Processes
Abstract:Thickfilm is an essential part of inkjet printheads. In the printheads used in Lexmark's 1100 series of printers, a dry film photosensitive laminate material is used to create the ink flow channels and to form an integral unit between the heater chip and the nozzle plate. In the printheads used for Lexmark's 7000 and 5700 series of printers, a liquid spin on photosensitive material is used to passivate the chip surface, planarize the chip surface, and promote adhesion between the nozzle plate and the chip. Both processes will be presented.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
