A new photo- and heat-sensitive printing system has been developed. Full-colored and high-quality images can be printed quickly and easily by using this system. Images are printed by dry process using only one sheet of sensitive paper. No other materials are needed thus resulting in no waste. The noteworthy features of the newly developed sensitive paper are the chromogenic development using heat-sensitive microcapsules, the spectral sensitization by unique sensitizing dyes and borates, the photopolymerization of monomers functioning as color developers, and the bleaching of sensitizing dyes during fixing process. By laser irradiation, developers polymerized and lose ability to move into the capsules. In the unexposed area, however, developers are able to move into the capsules and change the precursors to dyes.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
