The screen printing is used in a variety of production processes in the pattern formation of the conductor, the semiconductor, and the insulator material of electronic parts. Science and technology development is necessary because it is an energy conservation production method in
the future. As for products such as our keyboard, GlidePoint,™ and Low-profile Operation Panels, the screen process printing is applied. Here, it reports on the relation between Rheology and fine-patterning of the silver paste as part of the fine-patterning technology with the
screen printing. The screen printing is a system that combines various parameters like the characteristic of the ink, the characteristic of the mask, and printing conditions, etc. Therefore, it is said that it will not be easy to develop academically. In addition, the dynamic behavior of
ink changes by each material to mix various materials with the product. One method of understanding the characteristic of this ink includes the viscoelasticity measurement with the Rheometer. We obtained the Ag paste that formed a fine pattern easily in the screen process printing by
measuring the Shear stress to the frequency dependency and the Shear rate. As a result, the mass production of 0.1mm line & space was achieved on the PET film now.

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.
