Suitability of Gravure Printing for High Volume Fabrication of Electronics
Abstract:This paper considers gravure printing and its suitability for application in electronics fabrication. Current applications of gravure in printed electronics are reviewed. Various aspects of gravure printing are discussed, such as preparation of gravure cylinders, engraving quality and the effect of engraving parameters on print quality. It is shown that engraving resolution and depth of engraved cells have an impact on the quality of printed layers. Gravure printing of fine features required for printed electronic devices is also evaluated.

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.
