Screen printing mesh – making quality visible

When it comes to precision printing in the hair-thin range, screen printing mesh from Haver & Boecker set industry-wide standards. It is no coincidence that they are the result of a close, worldwide cooperation with the screen printing industry and its suppliers with the aim of continuously developing screen printing technology. These cooperations repeatedly result in the development of new metal mesh qualities. All industries that place high demands on precise screen printing quality benefit from our know-how and comprehensive portfolio of innovative, high-quality screen printing meshes: From the solar industry and electronics to the decoration of ceramic products, hollow glass and container glass.

Attention to the smallest detail

Precisely defined mesh thicknesses, very high mesh accuracies and tight tolerances as well as precisely defined print layer thicknesses enable outstanding printing results with HAVER metal mesh (HMG).

What is special about HMG: The stress during tensioning and printing is in the lower elasticity range. You benefit from a very long service life of the screen printing stencil carrier if handled properly.

Applications

HAVER metal mesh for the electronics industry

Ever smaller electronic devices require ever smaller printed circuits and PCBs. Screen printing processes that push the limits of what is technically possible in printing use highly precise and stable screen printing mesh made of metal mesh. HAVER screen printing meshes have a high register accuracy and can be adjusted to the ink application required for your application. They enable an optimal ink flow, which ensures an even colour gradient and a precisely definable ink film thickness.

  • OLED – organic light emitting diodes
  • FED – flat panel display technology
  • Electronic paper, e-paper
  • TP – touch panels

HAVER metal mesh for the solar industry

For the conversion of electromagnetic solar radiation into electric current, solar cells are metallised using a high-precision screen printing process. Due to their high yield strength, HAVER metal meshes for screen printing enable a high screen tension and thus a very low take-off of the screen printing mesh. They also offer a high register accuracy.

HAVER screen printing meshes are ideal for the metallisation of solar panels.

Examples of use:

  • Printing on "wafers"
  • Front metallisation
  • Backside metallisation
  • OLED
  • LCD
  • FPC
  • Glass print

HAVER metal mesh for glass, ceramics, porcelain

For our HAVER screen printing mesh, we weave very thin wires with tight diameter tolerances, a high yield strength and optimised surface finish. The high screen tension with minimal bounce results in an excellent register accuracy. By calendering in different gradations, the fabric thickness can be defined and adjusted to the printing process. In this way, the ink consumption can also be influenced. An optimal ink flow is also possible, which ensures an even colour gradient with an exactly definable ink layer thickness. The stencil can be easily released from the screen template, so cleaning is simple. Unlike polyester fabrics, Haver screen printing mesh is dimensionally stable and can be heated electrically. Therefore, it is well suited for printing with thermoplastic inks.
With its high durability, more print cycles and long service lives can be achieved.
