What is Inkjetting

Inkjetting refers to the process of using specialized inkjet equipment to apply well-defined ink dots onto a PCB. This method involves converting solid ink pellets into a liquid form using heat and then dispensing the liquid ink onto the PCB surface through a nozzle. The ink is applied precisely to specific areas and quickly dries upon contact.

Inkjetting is a versatile technique that serves multiple purposes in the PCB industry. It can be used to print circuit traces, add labels or markings, and create patterns on the PCB surface. This process offers flexibility and precision, allowing for intricate designs and detailed markings. Inkjetting eliminates the need for traditional etching processes, making it a cost-effective and efficient method for prototyping and manufacturing PCBs. It also enables rapid iteration and design changes without requiring expensive tooling or manufacturing processes.
