The company launched its silver nano particle ink which is suitable for industrial inkjet printheads as well as a special media system onto which the ink can be printed. With the system, customers can obtain electrical circuitry without any post process requirements simply by using inkjet technology with Silver Nano ink and the companys special media.
Applications for the ink include: RFID antennas, LED signage, Flex TFT gate electrode and more.
The company also presented its new CTP platesetter with the latest generation of chem-free offset printing plates, the Violet Digiplate (VDP). The VDP polymer plate with cross-linking technology is available in polyester or paper-based plate material in various thicknesses up to 0.28 mm.
The excellent printing properties of the Violet Digiplate was demonstrated live on a Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 74 press. The VDP plate is imaged by a fully-automatic CTP internal drum device with violet laser. The CTP platesetter, Violet Digiplater VDP-CF 3070, is designed for a maximum plate size of 780 x 680mm.
After imaging, the plates are washed off in the built-in processor with only water and without any
chemistry. This extremely compact and environmentally-friendly CTP system is characterised by low energy consumption and a minimal CO2 footprint as well as its chem-free production.
