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.
As an inkjet innovator we are focused on developing these applications using the technology built into Xaar’s latest range of advanced printheads which allows inkjet to be applied in both scanning and single-pass modes making digital inkjet printing a realistic choice for high output in-line batch and roll-to-roll production. We have a professional team working closely with manufacturers, fluid formulators and specialist printer makers to bring these new processes to market with our printheads and technologies.
