Ink Jet Ceramic Printer Mirtels M103 with High-Precision Alignment System

The Mirtels M103 has a high-precision alignment system that provides high accuracy in full-color prints.

The ceramic printing process is as follows:

  1. Make sure the desired object can be repeatedly located on the printer table with high precision.
  2. Use Photoshop to do CMYK color separation. In system CMYK it is received CYAN – dark blue, MAGENTA – red, YELLOW – yellow, BLACK — black.
  3. Begin with printing the “cyan” layer onto the ceramic object. The jet printer applies a colorless adhesive paint onto the object.
  4. Ceramic powder paint of dark blue color is put on the desired object. There, where the adhesive paint has been put, the powder sticks. The rests of powder paint will be swept away with a brush.
  5. Other three layers are printed using the same technology as above.

After printing the full-color image onto the ceramic object, place the object in a muffle furnace where the pigments are fired into the object at a temperature of 800 degrees Celsius. As a result we receive high-precision image with the high resolution.
