This report examines the practicality of printing conductive ink with a gravure press to create microelectronics. The Concept was tested by printing commercially available silver flake ink onto commercially available substrates and observing the image transfer of fine lines. The results of a line...
Printed electronics has challenges in several areas. Accurately printing a fine conductive line is one of them. There are numerous critical parameters that are a significant part of the printing process such as the conductive metal used in ink, ink film thickness, ink viscosity, ink resin type, ink...
As the print world continues to grow and continues to be wasteful, the potential for the future and the advancement of printed electronics is a topic on a lot of people’s minds. The overall goal is to create low cost electronic components, increased efficiency and less waste in the print industry.1...
The gravure printing process holds a prominent place in the printing industry with its efficient, consistently high-quality output. Prominence, in gravure’s case, is well aligned with its simplicity as well as the negative impact the process has on the environment. Growth towards environmental...
The ink evaporation process during the press run, popularly known as “ink mist”, is a problem in the gravure printing process because of high press speeds on modern gravure presses, especially when printing on extensible substrates. Printers and gravure press operators believe that the total amount...
Abstract For the last few years, the Internet and other media sources have led to a reduction in the printing. As more digital technologies that compete with print arise, the print industry needs to find new ways to increase its business. Electronics printed by current printing technologies is...
The engraved cylinder is the most complex aspect of the gravure printing process. There are not many variables that can be adjusted on press, so there is a heavy reliance on the quality of the engravings themselves to produce quality print. This research seeks to answer the question: What are the...
In this work it was determined how changes in the electrostatic assist (ESA) levels affect the optical density and dot gain of the gravure printed document. Optical density and dot gain of elongated and compressed cells at different ESA settings was also compared in this experiment. Two test...
