The Current Situation and Future Applications of the Inkjet Industry
Abstract:Several applications for inkjet technology are being developed based on the concept of a micro-liquid process. First, activematrix thin-film diode liquid-crystal displays (TFD-LCDs) equipped with color filters are manufactured by using pigmented inkjet printing. Fundamental technologies have been optimized, including pigment-dispersed solvent inks, bank materials deposited on a metallic black matrix, a piezoelectric drop-on-demand inkjet head, an original inkjet machine, a drying process for color layers, and the fabrication of LCD panels. Applications in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic thin film transistors (TFTs), micro-lenses, metal wiring processes and other areas are planned, and visionary industrial inkjet applications for the future are presented.

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.
