Process for Making Photoceramics using Ink Jet Ceramic Printer Mirtels М103
The photoceramics making process using Ink Jet Ceramic Printer Mirtels М103 includes the following steps:
- Fixation of the blank piece in the printer using automatic positioning system.
- Full-color image separation into 4 CMYK color components using the Adobe Photoshop software.
- Successive printing of each layer starting with black on the ceramics. Ink jet ceramic printer applies to required areas a bonding layer of adhesive ink invisible to the eye. In order to make this fragments black-colored the piece is then powdered with black toner, and the excessive toner swept away using a brush. If black-and-white ceramics is the purpose, the piece then can be baked. And whenever one may need to have full-color image in the end, it will take another three runs of these operations - printing of a new bonding layer and applying powder of the relevant color.
- After full-color image is applied to the ceramic piece it is then placed into the muffle furnace at 800°С for 2-3 minutes. When subjected to high temperature coloring pigment penetrates deeply into the surface of the glazing, forming a durable image able to retain its original brightness and sharpness for 3 to 5 decades.
