Electrostatic Printing of Functional Materials, a Versatile, Novel Manufacturing Process
Abstract:Functional materials like metals or glasses are formulated into liquid toners that are imaged on a fixed configuration electrostatic printing plate and then transferred across a finite, fluid filled mechanical gap to a variety of substrates. These substrates include glass and metal plates and non-flat surfaces like US coins. Details of this process, the toners formulated to date; and some suggested manufacturing applications are discussed.

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.
