The growing requirement for finer and finer definition demands analysis and consideration of droplet characteristics.

industrial printing


With such small holes involved, the challenge is to ensure precision as any burr or stress will cause imperfections.

  • create different sizes and shapes of holes according to the medium used to ensure an efficient and accurate flow
  • Crisp edges with no inconsistency
  • great strength
how we help

Tecan’s chemical etching process allows precise aperture profiles to be easily and accurately optimised according to the media being used – including elliptical. This allows for improved printing performance for a number of applications for high-definition printing including media and ceramics.

We have worked with customers to produce tools for fine-featured embossing, watermarks, 3D printing and secure printing to name but a few.
