Customer demands for increased performance within the precision micro-fluidic markets, including high image quality printing, can be satisfied by designing piezoelectrically actuated inkjet printhead modules with single crystal silicon Micro-Electro-Mechanical (MEMS) manufacturing process-es. The result is a highly flexible design and manufacturing space. This combination allows the efficient development of a high quality product family capable of servicing a broad range of printing applications in addition to pushing “inkjet technology” into the more generalized precision liquid dispensing application space. The following text describes current performance drivers in the precision micro-fluidic market and a MEMS based, bending mode, piezoelectrically actuated inkjet module, (the Spectra, Inc. M-Class) designed to meet these evolving needs. In addition, the inherent performance and manufacturing flexibility of the associated product family is highlighted.

  • 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.
