Industrial inkjet for advanced manufacturing processes
Digital inkjet is the creation of small, uniform droplets which can be jetted accurately and with precision onto a wide range of substrates such as silicon, glass and film. This technique offers advantages over established print and coating processes and enables emerging fabrication methods such as Additive Manufacturing, 3D printing and nanoimprint lithography.
The digital inkjet process is increasingly considered for advanced manufacturing processes for the deposition of functional fluids across a broad range of industrial applications. Manufacturers are looking to drive down the cost of manufactured goods across a broad range of industries; a reduction in processes, fewer consumables, less material waste, all contribute to improved manufacturing efficiency whilst the ability to print on demand allows for customisation and personalisation.
