On-demand Transcript Foil Print Technology for Smart-Phone Decoration
There are three needs in the decoration of a smart phone. The first is a part around the screen on the surface of the touch panel and a decoration of the logo. The second is a decoration of the back cover of the battery cover. The third is a decoration of a hard case to cover the whole to the purpose as for protection from the dropping impact of a smart phone. For this demand, we have developed totally dry, environment-friendly and small-footprint digital printing machine which is characterized by its Foil printing. It achieved it in the decoration of the surface of the touch panel of the first demand by decorating Anti scattering film. Moreover, because the 2nd and 3rd demand was threedimensional the shape, the decoration with 3D transcript was achieved by 3D heat transcript method with an expanding film. Moreover, it was necessary to avoid the electromagnetic interference in the metallic color decoration with portable telecommunications equipment. We made the ribbon of metallic ink of non-conductive for this problem, and achieved the method of the decoration with the on-demand. As a result, we achieved the ondemand decoration of a smart phone, and came to be able to meet diversified needs.

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.
