3D screen-printing technology opens up new, flexible and versatile options for the pharmaceutical industry in the manufacturing process of their products.
In the variety of traditional screen-printing now extended to the third dimension, the print gives rise to any number of layers of complex, three-dimensional parts at a speed of two to over 100µm per printed layer. The large number of thin layers also maximises their homogeneity.
In this case, unlike other generative production processes (additive manufacturing) only material is applied where structures are to be formed on the one hand and with the patented 3D technology neither supporting structures nor a powder bed is required on the other.
The powder mixture adheres firmly to the previously printed layer without any further assistance, which is why this process contributes to production that is especially efficient and resource-friendly and reduces the cost.
