The Q-Class printheads are the newest printheads from Fujifilm Dimatix. Due to their silicon orifice plate, they provide improved drop placement accuracy per cost over earlier printheads. These printheads are capable of jetting fluids with a wide range of drop volumes. A new system for generating patterns for a high volume production masking application was developed using the Q-Class printheads. The accuracy of drop placement, feature definition and the throughput of this system will be disclosed. The architecture of the deposition system, which uses new drive electronics developed by ImTech, Inc. and mechanism developed by Korvis Automation, Inc. will be described. During development many practical implementation challenges were encountered. The most significant of these will be identified along with their solutions.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
