Starlight 1000SI Digital Masking Printing System

The Starlight 1000SI is a production system operating with heated vacuum platen capable of accommodating plastic, glass and metal foil substrates. This system is configured to deposit Xerox phase change solid ink. The solid ink may be used for masking purposes protecting the underlying surface from post-printing treatments such as etching or overprinting. The solid ink mask can be removed from the substrates by chemical or physical means to uncover the protected region. The system is capable of 60-micron features and operates with a Tact time of 2 seconds. Product applications include printing of masks on functional films, sheets of glass or metal followed by etching steps to render relief patterns on the substrates.

Starlight 1000AG Silver Conductive Ink Printing System

The Starlight 1000AG is a production system capable of accommodating plastic and glass substrates. This system is configured to deposit conductive metal inks that may be used for building conductive wiring on flexible, stretchable or rigid substrates with applications in displays, solar, machine interfaces and wearables. Starlight 1000AG may be configured with thermal or photonic sintering capabilities depending on application or customer preference. The ink jet head architecture can be configured to provide very high resolution with an in-line automated inspection process to ensure high quality output. Product applications include bus bar printing on touch sensors on plastic substrates, circuits on appliance interfaces and a range of medical device applications.

Starlight 1000XW Wide Format Decorative and Functional Ink Printing System

The Starlight 1000XW is a very large area production system operating with a heated vacuum platen designed for wider sheets of plastic and glass. The system may be configured to deposit from 1 to 5 color or functional UV-curable inks for decorative or industrial purposes. Starlight 1000XW is configured with UV curing bars with a Tact time of under 4 seconds. An in-line automated inspection process ensures high quality output. Product applications include printing on large format glass sheets, printing patterns of wide plastic sheets used for decorative room surrounds.

Starlight 2000UV Two UV Curable Inks Printing System

The Starlight 2000UV is a production system operating capable of accommodating plastic, glass and metal foil substrates. This system is configured to deposit 2 different UV-curable inks. The colored or functional inks may be used for decorative or industrial purposes. The system operates with a Tact time of 2 seconds with additional manual loading and unloading operations. A system operates with an in-line automated inspection process to ensure high yield output. Product applications include bezel designs for laptop computers.

Starlight 3000FHE Three-Ink Flexible and Hybrid Electronics Additive Manufacturing System

The Starlight 3000FHE is an additive manufacturing system based on a 24 inches x 26 inches heated vacuum platen capable of accommodating plastic, glass or metal substrates. Starlight 3000FHE system is configured to deposit 3 different inks that may include a conductive metal ink, a dielectric and a Legend ink for marking purposes. The system is capable of 60-micron features and operates with a Tact time of 2 seconds with automated loading and unloading operations. It is configured to include photonic sintering and automated pick-and-placement of silicon-based components followed by device encapsulation. Starlight 3000FHE is designed for high throughput manufacturing of flexible and hybrid electronic components. Product applications include medical devices, biosensors, appliance interfaces and a host of other applications.

A 13 feet by 3 feet transport assembly and 3 ft x 3 ft electrical components cabinet compose the Starlight 3000FHE footprint.

Starlight 4000UV Four UV Curable Inks Printing System

The Starlight 4000UV is a production system accommodating plastic, glass and metal foil substrates. This system is configured to deposit decorative and functional UV-curable inks. The system is designed for 4-color graphical content on plastic films that include product applications in display bezels.
