Inkjet printing is an additive manufacturing technology applying functional materials for a variety of applications. These functional materials can have dielectric, conductive, adhesive, mechanical, optical or chemical properties, and are printed with pico-liter sized droplets from a digital file.
Its precise drop placement and accurate drop volumes make functional inkjet printing suited to printed electronics, displays, OLED, sensors, PCBs, semiconductor assembly, chemical machining, photovoltaics, life science and optics.
Inkjet printing can create fine features down to 20 micron, and replace techniques such as lithography, screen printing, spray coating and dispensing. There is no more need for masks and screens, significantly saving material usage and enabling short product changeover times.
