Production Digital Fabrication System using the Dimatix Q-Class Printhead
Abstract: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.

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.
