SPGPrints’ nonwoven nickel meshes, with hexagonal holes, offer high strength to endure handling, and provide stable, uninterrupted printing by roll or sheet. They also offer aspect ratios of 0.3 and higher for obtaining fine patterns. These qualities enable printers to exploit the unique ability of the screen process to lay down thick ink or coating layers in one pass, and achieve vital functionalities such as connectivity and product protection.
PlanoMesh, for flatbed printing, is made from 100% nickel sheets and is available in 1200mm-wide rolls. Its extreme shape stability gives a significant advantage in quality and lifetime, compared with woven meshes. PlanoMesh achieves exceptional registration and resolutions of below 50µm.
For roll-fed printing situations such as seamless/endless production, or where higher speeds are required, SPGPrints’ nickel RotaMesh rotary screens offer productivity and long-term low cost of ownership. The screens can be both re-used and re-engraved for different jobs, several times.
On account of their ability to achieve reliable, precise coverage, SPGPrints’ PlanoMesh and RotaMesh screens are increasingly chosen for printing circuits with carbon and silver-based inks, facilitating the production of cheaper and lighter electronic devices; as well as low-power organic solar panels on PET film.
