Different Types of Metal Printing Processes
Inkjet Metal Printing
In inkjet metal printing a prepared metal surface is sprayed with a special type of quick-drying ink. Traditional ink is not suitable for metal printing because they don’t get absorbed by metal, unlike paper.
Inkjet printing is preferred in cases where printing is done on a small surface area. Inkjet metal printing is not a good option for printing photos because the resolution of this type of printing isn’t as high as dye sublimation.
Dye Sublimation Metal Printing
Dye sublimation is the right metal printing technique for getting HD metal prints. In this form of metal printing the inkjet system is used to start the printing process and the image is printed onto transfer paper with special solid inks. Then, the heat transfer of the image is done onto a prepared metal surface where the ink gets transformed into gas before bonding with the metal.
This process of dye sublimation creates a chemical bond with the metal which ensures the clarity and durability of the print. This printing process is preferred in fine arts and especially in the printing of photos, due to its vivid coloring and high resolution.
Screen Metal Printing
Screen metal printing is a process of forcing ink through a mesh screen onto a metal surface. The impervious area of the screen acts as a stencil and the ink that passes through forms the printed image.
Screen printing can be applied on other metal surfaces like stainless steel, unlike dye sublimation. With the proper setup, screen printing can be applied on round surfaces too. Typically, enamel or epoxy ink is used for screen metal printing. Screen metal printing is best suited for large and simple designs on metal. It can also be used for photo-quality printing highlighting fine details.
