    To some people, the inkjet printhead is like a small musical instrument. You can tune it to perfection and achieve a harmonious sound, or, in the case of the printhead, it is jetting stable and accurately placed drops of fluid. Alternatively, without the tuning, you could easily play a few wrong notes.

    This presentation will provide an insight into what it takes to perfectly tune an inkjet printhead when integrating it into a printer. It will highlight some of the considerations that have to be made and options for optimisation that might be used in order to make the printhead ‘sing’.

    In recent years, curing of inks and coatings using UV light has become the industry standard in many printing applications. However, negative side effects such as ink migration prevent the utilization of this curing method in certain applications, including food and medical packaging. As an alternative technology, electron beam curing is attracting an increasing level of interest within the printing industry.
    In this presentation, we will introduce Hamamatsu’s new EB-engine development, which is focused on low-energy electron beam curing. Besides a lower energy consumption and reduced shielding requirements, the low-energy concept is crucial to minimize the impact of the electrons on the printed substrate due to their low penetration depth. Furthermore, EB inks do not contain photoinitiators, which means that a completely non-migratory printing process is enabled.

    A common theme in printed electronics is manufacture of bus bars – metallic structures a few mm wide x 100s mm to > 1m long – used to connect electrodes in large-area devices such as touch sensors or smart windows. These are usually made with silver paste, deposited by screen printing and dried and sintered in an oven. For large area, eg > 1m2 devices, the printers, screens and ovens are inconveniently large. M-Solv has developed a process which combines inkjet-printed metal with near-infrared drying and laser sintering. The three processes can be combined on a single process head – one step metallization – this head rotates to allow processing in any direction. For low-ink coverage applications such as bus bars this process is highly efficient compared to screen printing. Bus bars are often divided into narrow tracks by laser post-processing. Inkjet-printed bus bars are thin compared to screen-printed ones of equivalent conductivity allowing laser patterning with 10mm L/S design rules.

    Recent process results from this development are presented.

    • Metrologie
    Technical Stage
    3D-look-and-feel is gaining ground in the reproduction of surfaces in inkjet printing markets. To clarify some semantics of 3-dimensionality, the presentation will begin with explaining the two ways the human brain perceives 3-dimensionality: Spatial and Plasticity Perception. The principle of Plasticity Perception is relevant for the facsimile or enhanced reproduction of haptic 3D-stuctures and effects in the surface industry. Modern hybrid scanning technology allows for two separate scan procedures; namely a 3D-surface structure (shape) scan and a color scan from samples such as wood grain, fabrics, textiles, stones, leathers, paintings, haptic tiles, structured wallpapers and foils, bulk materials and other natural and artificial haptic surfaces. Consequently, generating such separate 3D-data and color-data files of the original scan samples, allows separate editing and manipulation of the surface plasticity (3D-editor) and color (classic color correction). The 3D-data is used for reproducing Real Plasticity of haptic surfaces by embossing or with digital layer inkjets. With a unique algorithmic process the same 3D-data can be super-imposed and combined with the matching color data to produce facsimile Virtual Plasticity of the sample in 2D-print (patented 6to5 – process). The ability to edit 3-dimensionality and colour separately opens up an exciting and unprecedented range of creative tools to treat or enhance the input data for new effects in output possibilities, like changing plasticity while sustaining color or vice versa, or even overlaying or adding haptic structures, etc. Advanced 3D-editors also offer the functionality of choosing different degrees of haptic enhancements for varying surface frequencies. Both printing technologies can combine the real plasticity of the 3D-haptic structure with virtual plasticity in 2D by printing the 6to5-color layer instead of the initially scanned color data.

    Ink jet fluid rheology is one of the key parameters that affect the whole ink jet process and can interact with other parameters in a complex way.  Any minor changes in the ink components or batch variations of formulation can drastically change complex rheology.  This affects fluid flow dynamics in the printhead, in-flight jetting and break-up behaviour. 

    Significant research has been carried out in developing novel rheological tools to characterise inks especially at (i) high frequency to mimic printhead in-channel conditions during waveform actuation, (ii) high shear rates to mimic nozzle conditions during jetting and (iii) extensional mode to mimic in-flight conditions.  This understanding has helped to formulate reliable ink to match printhead dynamic properties requirements and speed up waveform development.

    We will present novel rheological tools capable of quantifying complex rheology of inkjet at relevant jetting timescale and geometry and their subsequent effect on the jetting behaviour.  We will present real case examples where such tools have been incorporated in (i) development and quality control of inks to differentiate between apparently identical inks but that resulted in different jetting behaviour and (ii) recommendation of optimum jetting temperature, print frequency and waveform conditions.

    Agfa and UNILIN have jointly developed specialized ink-primer sets that enable roll-to-roll digital printing for decorative surfaces like laminate flooring and furniture. This quantum leap in decor paper production technology is powered by dedicated mono- and dual-layer primers from UNILIN, combined with perfectly matched inks from Agfa. This ideal combination of water based primer and inks delivers a wide color gamut with amazing print quality, while also lowering ink consumption. With target pricing significantly below current standards, these digitally printed ink-primer sets will for the first time in history compete head-to-head with high-volume analogue printing.

    The high speed and cost efficiency of roll-to-roll digital printing offer huge incentives for the established décor printers as well as for in-house decor paper production by flooring and furniture manufacturers. Print-on-demand design flexibility increases agility in reacting to market needs and also minimizes unprofitable stock levels. Integration within existing manufacturing facilities is easy – this innovative technology is fully compatible with conventional processing (impregnation, pressing, cutting & milling).

    Marc Graindourze (Agfa) and Jasmine Geerinckx (UNILIN) explain the properties of their new ink-primer sets and how the roll-to-roll digital printing of decor paper heralds exciting and disruptive change in the flooring and furniture manufacturing industries.

    UV LED technology enables us much more than successfully replacing the mercury lamp solutions, and therefore gaining reduced operational costs through longer lifetime, reduced electrical consumption, higher reliability and reduced heating of substrates.

    The OmniCure® LED technology being able to control each sub segment individually enables very precise UV curing solution, enhancing the field of its application. Furthermore it is discussed how UV LED overcome the limitations shown by today commercially available wavelengths. Post exposure to 278nm UV LEDs is an attractive solution that is investigated in greater depth to explore irradiance, dose and wavelength requirements for industrial curing solutions.

    In November 2010, Germany launched the electronic ID card. This also marked the onset of the Innosec®Fusion personalisation method – a digital printing technology that incorporates polycarbonate-based inks into polycarbonate card bodies. The aim of this development was to meet the requirements of a fully integrated coloured personalisation method with the highest security level. To achieve this, Bundesdruckerei developed a special ink that contains the high molecular polymer itself. The presentation will give a short impression of the challenges this technology offers.

    In the near future, the conventional way of applying solder resist in purely subtractive processes for printed circuit boards will be replaced by the technology of a digital, functional 3D surface applied in fully additive technology. This presentation shows the approach for the gradual digitalization of printed circuit board production and its processes.

    An example of this is the new process of digital additive technology for solder resists, which makes it possible to implement customer wishes and special technological requirements. Up so far, this process is the first and only technology in the industry to offer the possibility of applying several layers of a dielectric directly, partially defined, specifically designed and with high precision. This enables an previously unseen degree of freedom in three-dimensional design.

    On the other hand, the quality of soldering can be improved: instead of coating the entire surface with solder resist (including drill holes) and removing it at the desired locations (pads, vias, etc.), material is now only applied at the required locations in the layout. This eliminates organic impurities, as soldermask is only applied where it is needed.

    On the whole, this presentation shows a revolutionary technology with the potential for a new, digital and three-dimensional technology level for printed circuit boards.
