Conventional embossing printing technology which can be used to produce metallic glossy images on stereo-shaped objects needs a pressing plate with the image patterns specially arranged. Accordingly, the embossing system is relatively expensive and lacks the adaptability for high-mix low-volume production. Considering these facts, we developed the Digital Quasiembossing Technology (DQT) which consisted of the technology combined with UV-curable inkjet printing and hot foil-stamping. We reported the DQT for the first time at NIP 28 in Quebec City last year. This paper is a continuation of the last report and describes the following facts. (a) We have improved the adhesion of UV-curable ink to a metallic foil, and consequently we can make not only relatively small-sized products but also large-sized ones with pictures and letters printed thereon. (b) The improved DQT system can produce higher gloss than the last system reported at NIP 28.

  • 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.
