The Transformation of Industrial Screen Printing
The world of industrial graphics and high-performance printing applications relies extensively on controlling deposition uniformity, not necessarily to produce a visually-pleasing image (although that’s not a bad thing), but to lay down what will eventually become the functional heart of the finished product. If you’re laying down printed electronics, it’s not that important that they look nice, but they have to function! Close-tolerance registration and meeting extremely detailed specifications are typical concerns — out of many — that an industrial printer needs address to become successful.
Today, from 2:30 to 3:45 pm, in Room 343, join Mike Young for “Hi-Tech Screen Printing 101 for Management.” In this session, Young will identify the crux of the problem in industrial printing: manufacturers and fabricators alike need to control print performance constantly, consistently, and repeatedly to maintain the same standards throughout production, regardless where production takes place. To successfully meet head-on these demanding and often challenging requirements, printing must be transformed from a two-dimensional process to a three-dimensional one — becoming more science than art. This session will help attendees make this transformation with ease by revisiting some of the basic, fundamental principles of the screening process.
