High Quality and High Definition Ink enables simultaneous printing of 100µm fine line of line & space, gradation of dot diameter 100µm, and deep and beautiful solid printing which used to be hard to realize by using conventional polyester stencil for decoration.
"Realization of both fine design with 100µm level and deep and beautiful solid printing" is technology of very high difficulty which other printing method cannot realize easily.
(*) Printing examples of using general polyester stencil are as follows.
|Item for comparison||Conventional ink||High Quality and High Definition Ink|
|L/S (Line & Space)||Hundreds of µm of L/S is required for stable printing.||Stable printing of 100µm (*)|
|Ink sagging width (one side)||Over 20µm||Below 5 - 8µm (*)|
Outline character(outline printing of fine line)
|Hundreds of µm of outline printing is required for stable printing.||100µm(*)|
|Dot diameter||Hundreds of µm dot diameter is required for stable printing.||100µm(*)|
- Comparison between line printing L/S=100µm and printing dot diameter 100µm
Printing conditions: Polyester stencil: (L355 mesh, thread diameter 27µm)
| Conventional ink
(IPX-HF 679 WHITE)
White line is thicker and ink sagging.
|High Quality and High Definition
Ink (XIP-HF 679 WHITE)
White line maintains its fineness without ink sagging.
Deformation and skipping dot occurred.
High Quality and High Definition
Ink (XFM-HF 971 BLACK)
Reproduce true-circle-like beautiful dot.

Printing conditions: SUS stencil (HS-D650 mesh, thread diameter 14µm)
Conventional ink (ERX-971 BLACK)
|Advantage obtained||Detailed advantage|
|Realize beautiful design which was used to be unrealizable.||Fine printing functions of 100µm level fine line and gradation, and deep and beautiful solid printing function enable beautiful design which conventional technology could not realize.|
|Realize fine design and solid printing at low price.|| In conventional decoration screen printing, different stencils
were used for fine line and solid printing separately, which
However, since High Quality and High Definition Ink enables printing fine design such as fine line, and solid pattern with one stencil, it reduces cost for stencil making and printing process.
This High Quality and High Definition Ink, is not the kind of ink existed before, and enables printing not only fine line but also various patterns such as solid printing and gradation printing, etc. at the same time and with high accuracy.
