Digital Ink-jet-based Printing: Beyond Color
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.2002.18.1.art00057_1  Published OnlineJanuary 2002

Next generation electronic devices including OLEDs, fuel cells, thin-form batteries and smart cards all represent a significant opportunity for market growth over the next several years. One factor limiting the advancement of these technologies lies in the high cost of ownership of manufacture. Ink-jet-based printing and deposition technologies offer a multitude of advantages for the manufacture of these technologies and can be viewed as a disruptive technology poised to challenge existing manufacturing infrastructures. To aid the transition to digital, ink-jet-based manufacturing methods, Superior MicroPowders (SMP) has leveraged its core competencies to develop non-traditional, non graphic-arts inks. These inks being developed are suitable for digital and ink-jet-based deposition and fabrication processes and show significant promise in the manufacture of a variety of advanced devices in the electronic, display and alternative energy industries. This step toward integrating ink-jet-based technology for the deposition of non-graphic-arts inks into next generation device manufacture represents a significant step forward in the advancement of ink-jet-based printing technology.
