Improve printing with high precision inkjet nozzle plates

The heart of an inkjet printer is the inkjet head—a combination of components and microdevices that forms ink droplets and puts them on paper The inkjet orifices plates are a very critical component of the print heads; the resulting print quality is dependent on the quality of their respective nozzle plate.

Additionally we provide protective coatings for the nozzle plate, such as gold or palladium nickel. This is critical in print head applications due to the corrosive nature of printing inks. The coating prevents nozzle plate damage and print head failure.

Ink jet printheads manufacturers use the orifice plates supplied by Stork Veco for desktop applications such as for printing of documents at home and at the office, and for industrial applications.

Our ink-jet customers use the inkjet nozzle plates for:

           high-end resolution and process colour printing
•           commercial printing such as company brochures and product specification sheets
•           drugs labeling in the pharmaceutical industry,  
•           large mural posters and displays for advertising in areas such as movie theaters
and shopping malls
•           ceramic tiles, pastry decoration, plastic cards, printed electronics, solar cells, 3-D
models, biodispensing and many other fields.
•           industrial printing - text and bar codes on shipping cartons, mail pieces and coding
•           food packaging printing
•           pharmaceutical label printing The accuracy of the orifices plates is of paramount importance for the quality of the printing. Special manufacturing technologies are used in close co-operation with the customers. The Stork Veco dedicated and automated manufacturing line ensures product consistency, reliability and satisfied customers. Main advantages of the electroformed nozzle plates versus other manufacturing technologies are: •   High drop placement accuracy
•   Unparalleled jetting straightness

Precision metal parts - Stork Veco's products

The electroforming and photo-etching processes are both economical for prototype quantities up to mass production volumes and the products are guaranteed to offer extremely high precision and reproducibility. This development has increased the demand for a more precise and flexible process for manufacturing not only electronic components, but also auxiliary products such as,,,, and spray.


Sieves, filter media and screens - Stork Veco's products

The metal filter media is primarily used for liquid / solid and solid / gas filtration and separation within the water, chemical, algae, petrochemical, oil, gas, pharmaceutical, food and a wide range of other process industries. Stork Veco provides filtration and separation media to a wide range of users in the processing and manufacturing industries.


Stencils - Stork Veco's products

Stencils are used by the Surface Mount Technology industry for solder paste deposition onto printed circuit boards, and for many imaginable printing applications such as:, via printing, touch screens,, and hybrid printing. Stork Veco is a reliable partner in business throughout the world with applications in printing technology. The 600HV hardness of these electroformed stencils and blanks create a major improvement of lifetime.


Shaver foils - Stencils - Stork Veco's products

With more than 35 years of experience with the manufacturing of shaver foils, Stork Veco has proven to be a reliable and innovative partner as independent supplier for the major shaver manufacturers. For the inspection of the shaver foils we have an automated inspection machine, enabling a 100 % control and guarantees a zero defect delivery.


Micro filters - Micro filters - Stork Veco's products

The tapering of the hole avoids clogging of the screen and ensures that pressure builds up more slowly, resulting in longer filtration cycles, and therefore increased production capacity. The sub micron tolerance of the hole size ensures the delivery of very fine aerosol that is ideally suited for drug inhalation systems. Stork Veco makes use of state of the art production techniques to manufacture test sieves with tapered or conical holes.


Pressure leaf filters - Leaf filters - disc filters - Stork Veco's products

The filter leaf is constructed with ribs on both sides to allow free flow of filtrate towards the neck and is covered with coarse mesh screens that normally support the finer woven metal screens or filter cloth that retain the cake. As manufacturer of filter media, we supply framed leaf filters for vertical pressure leaf filters, horizontal pressure leaf filters and horizontal plate pressure filters.
