In recent years, applications with a thermal print system have been rapidly expanding to emerging countries. Under the circumstances, a lot of direct thermal paper is being developed locally by many companies leaving the end-users little to no choice but to use the local paper supplier.

Unfortunately, some of this newly developed local direct thermal paper cause significant abrasions on the printheads forcing the users to replace the printheads frequently.

Considering the situation, ROHM has developed a durable thermal printhead which can achieve three times longer life compared to conventional printheads, even with such severe locally manufactured medias. In addition, the new printhead has 15% improved energy-efficiency and contributes to the ability of accepting a low-sensitivity direct thermal paper.

We have also developed AST (Anti Sticking Treatment) technology to prevent a sticking problem which causes a poor print-quality. The treatment also reduces paper residue build-up on the surface of printheads and keeps a good print-quality for continuous printing.

  • 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.
