1 August 1991 Electrostatic screen-through ink jet printing technique
Author Affiliations +
The authors designed an electrostatic ink jet printing technique that prints using a voltage lower than conventional techniques. The assembly consists of a closely aligned ink roller, mask screen, paper, and an electrode. A voltage pulse is applied between the ink and electrode, then electrostatic force overcomes the surface tension of the ink, and the ink goes through holes in the screen and sticks to the paper. Major factors affecting the success of this technique are the materials comprising the screen, ink attributes, and electrostatic force.
