Silk screen printing grids and images
Printing screen is used in the printed circuit board industry and is the most economical and effective method for printing PCB solder masks, legends and single layers. For more than half a century, screen printing mesh has been an important manufacturing process in the printed circuit board industry.
1. How to decide which grid number should be used? To decide which grid number you need to use, you should consider the details of printing:
1) What material (substrate) is being printed?
2) What ink is being used?
3) How much detail does the image have?
One of the most important parts of successful screen printing is how to understand how the mesh count relates to print quality. The screen has a variety of mesh options. Ultimately, your job is to understand which grid is suitable for each piece of clothing, each image, and each ink.
Although multi-mesh is the standard configuration of any screen printing shop, they all have their own unique uses and can achieve the highest quality output.
2. Image details
As the image details increase, the number of grids also increases.
For simple content such as a monochrome logo or large text, you don’t need a high grid count. But for complex images, you need the highest possible grid.
