Development of Digital Photo Prints for Thermal Dye Transfer Method
Improvement of image's high sensitivity has been achieved by adopting a new adhesive/barrier layer in order to transfer the dye in the transfer film (ink ribbon) more effectively to the receiver. As for preservability improvement, we have successfully developed a new dye structure excellent in inter-dissolution stability with resin (binder) that comprises dye and durable against external factors such as light, heat, humidity, etc.
With these new technologies, we will be able to obtain images with high speed output instantly on the spot, a beautiful photo print with high contrast and wide tone range, a beautiful photo print with negligible deterioration of photo quality by light and heat, etc.

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.
