Seminar Ink-jet printing as a manufacturing process
Ian Hutchings


Ink-jet printing provides a family of mask-less digital processes for the controlled deposition of materials in liquid form. These processes differ fundamentally from traditional printing processes, which involve the use of a physical master from which multiple, identical products are replicated. A wide range of materials, including metals, ceramics and polymers, can be deposited in droplet form, and several process routes apart from direct additive deposition can be used. This lecture will discuss methods by which the various classes of materials can be deposited, and their applications to micro-manufacturing in a wide range of applications. Although most attention has so far been paid to thin-film products, the potential of ink-jet processes for the fabrication of 3-D products has yet to be fully developed.
