ImTech announces new patent approval for thermally ejectable UV curable fluids.
Years of development work led to the patent and resulted in ImTech providing three industry-leading, UV curable inks for HP45 cartridges to the industrial printing market.
“Our development was focused on a market opportunity: printing on non-porous substrates with thermal inkjet technology,” president and co-inventor Bill Buskirk stated. “Until recently, using thermal inkjet for many direct-part marking or package printing applications was not possible because inks were not available for these types of materials. Our products allow many of these applications to be addressed with the simplicity and low cost of thermal inkjet cartridges and printing technology.”
Mr. Buskirk went on to state that “broadening the market addressable with thermal inkjet remains a top priority for our product development team.
“ImTech is releasing two new inks for HP45 cartridges demonstrating our capabilities with fast drying solvents for polyethylene and PVC-based substrates,” he added.
