Hiroki Sano discusses why proper wire mesh must be selected for each printing project
Screen-printing remains the most cost effective method for producing a wide variety of electronic components.
Modern electronic components often require conductive line width as fine as 50µm or even narrower.
To screen-print such a fine conductive line, printers are required to utilise a mesh with the thinnest possible wire diameter which helps to minimise printing interferences and to control paste deposit.
This article helps to point out some of the technical challenges faced by screen-printers, while also encouraging them to continue to move forward.
