Paper Objects Made through Laser Cutting and Scoring: a Smooth Step from Digital Printing to Digital Fabrication
Abstract:A new process is described, that allows the cutting and scoring of paper with a laser diode. The laser cutting step comes after an inking step, in which the lines to be cut are ink-jetted with an ink that absorbs the laser radiation. This technology patented by CEA appears as an attractive low-cost technology for creating 3d personalized paper objects. Business models associated to that technology are discussed, and licensing opportunities 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.
