Ink Jet Tools for Precision Fabrication
Abstract:Purpose-built ink jet printheads are now recognized as useful tools in manufacturing where precision deposition is required. Piezoelectric drop-on-demand ink jet printheads offer the critical combination of high productivity, high reliability and jetting uniformity characteristics (drop volume consistency, velocity characteristics and jet straightness) for depositing a very wide range of materials dissolved or dispersed in organic or aqueous media. For example, ink jet printheads are key components in pilot production lines that manufacture RGB PLED displays for mobile phones. Even as ink jetting has gained a presence in display and electronics manufacturing, new opportunities are appearing that require smaller drops and increased productivity. Success with many of these new applications will require both process and fluid research and engineering.
This paper describes Dimatix's approach to facilitate the development of manufacturing processes for both rigid and flexible substrates and development of new functional fluids.

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.
