3D Functional Inkjet Printer as a Manufacturing Platform for PCB Solder Mask and Legend Direct Deposition (3D Printing Europe 2015)

Dr Eliane Liraz, Materials R&D Manager
Apr 29, 2015.

Presentation Summary

Solder mask direct deposition on a 3D multicomponent surfaces by Ink jet technology requires overcoming two significant technological gaps -
1. A Formulation meeting both PCB industry requirements (finishing lines, assembly lines, etc.) & Ink jet technology requirements (reliability, jettability, print quality issues).
2. Direct deposition of a single liquid on a multi component surface (hydrophilic & hydrophobic) while controlling dot size, in order to achieve high printing quality.
The presentation will describe the benefits of Gryphon 3D functional inkjet printer for PCB manufacturers, assemblers and end users by overcoming the challenges imposed by traditional solder mask process.
