Abstract

The basic parameters of screen printing are discussed, and an analytical model of the screen printing process is introduced. The ink roll in front of the squeegee is treated as a pump generating, close to the squeegee edge, high hydrostatic pressure which injects ink into the screen meshes. The shearing of the ink, the mechanics of screen snap‐off and the ink transfer taking place behind the squeegee are also analysed.
