For more than 30 years, Trident has been a world leader in the design and manufacture of industrial ink jet printheads. A versatile additive and digital process, our piezo technology is ideal for producing solar photovoltaic cells. Trident printheads provide precise, controlled dispensing capabilities for PV manufacturing processes such as jetting silver contact lines and bus lines, jetting etching patterns with acid or alkaline materials, and jetting functional coatings efficiently.

Why Choose Ink Jet?

Ink Jet Benefits:

  • Lower materials/fluids cost
  • Lower processing cost
  • Lower capital cost
  • Non-contact printing to reduce substrate breakage
  • Thinner substrates with lower substrate cost
  • Environmentally-friendly additive process
  • Less waste

Why Choose Trident?

Why Trident is the Best Choice:

  • Stainless steel construction is inert to corrosive acids or alkaline etchants from 2 to 14 pH
  • Droplets as small as 7 picoliters for narrow contact lines and small etched features
  • Elevated printhead temperature control allows jetting fluids with viscosities from 5 to 30 cps
  • Removable, cleanable, repairable stainless steel nozzle plate for long life and optimum return on investment
  • Because each channel has an expected life of 90 billion firings, Trident printheads last 8 times longer than alternative ink jet technologies

Statement of Reliability  

"Trident is by far the longest lasting printhead on the market. Of the more than 500 printheads installed (in our deposition coating application) only two (0.5%) printhead failures have occurred over a four year period.”
