Industrial Printing Beyond Color
Abstract:During the development of today's industrial printing technologies traditional press makers and printers gained a number of abilities and competences which will help to extend their scope beyond printed products which only address the human visual sensory nerve.
For example, printing an appropriate pattern with an ink which generates on a substrate the functionality electrical conductivity gives the opportunity to print electrical circuitry or antennas for RFIDs. Adding further patterns with functionalities like semi conductivity and electrical insulation opens routes to print e.g. organic field effect transistors OFETs and LEDs.
The paper outlines the extension of traditional graphic technologies into new fields of industrial printing and will discusses opportunities, challenges and limitations of industrial printing systems for printing electronic devices.

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.
