Screen printing

Screen printing consists on a printing technique that uses a screen to transfer ink to a substrate. The screen has a mesh where a pattern was drawn; in this mesh there are parts that allow the passage of ink (mesh image) and others that are impermeable (mesh emulsion). Moving a squeegee across the screen makes the ink be transferred from the screen to the substrate with the pattern that was on the mesh. Multiple layers can be printed on the same substrate using different screens.

Our facilities allow printing in A4 substrates that can be flexible (e.g. polyester films) or rigid (e.g. PCB boards). Screen printing can be used for diverse applications such as sensors and electronics.
