This study discloses a novel application of Ink-Jet printing technology on manufacturing color filter for LCD. With the special inks invested by ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute, Taiwan), by using this system with OES self developed head, a strip-type color filter (pixel size 113 μm * 339 μm, with 20 μm black matrix width) made by ink-jet printing method is achieved. The results show that the accuracy of motion and printing are satisfactory. However, the innate characteristics of satellite drop problem by ink-jet method reduce the yield rate. In this study, a driving waveform control method is provided to modulate the ink discharging condition; the preheating and inter-cooling function are elaborate to improve the printing quality. Experimental observation shows a significant reduction in satellite drop and its position deviation, and the dots circularity is acceptable.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
