There are many industrial fabrication processes which require etching or plating steps to be performed. While it is a long term ambition to develop direct-write technologies to improve such processes and remove the need for these steps, there is scope in the near term to improve the efficiency of such processes by using digital masking. This presentation will examine the use of hot melt ink jet in various industrial fabrication processes and the special advantages of such an approach. Hot melt inks provide very reliable jetting due to their low volatility and excellent print quality even on rough surfaces, due to the inks freezing on contact with the substrate. A variety of hot melt ink chemistries can be evolved to suit various different etch and plate applications.

  • 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.
