Digital Ink-jet-based Printing: Beyond Color
Abstract:Next generation electronic devices including OLEDs, fuel cells, thin-form batteries and smart cards all represent a significant opportunity for market growth over the next several years. One factor limiting the advancement of these technologies lies in the high cost of ownership of manufacture. Ink-jet-based printing and deposition technologies offer a multitude of advantages for the manufacture of these technologies and can be viewed as a disruptive technology poised to challenge existing manufacturing infrastructures. To aid the transition to digital, ink-jet-based manufacturing methods, Superior MicroPowders (SMP) has leveraged its core competencies to develop non-traditional, non graphic-arts inks. These inks being developed are suitable for digital and ink-jet-based deposition and fabrication processes and show significant promise in the manufacture of a variety of advanced devices in the electronic, display and alternative energy industries. This step toward integrating ink-jet-based technology for the deposition of non-graphic-arts inks into next generation device manufacture represents a significant step forward in the advancement of ink-jet-based printing technology.

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.
