Paper Abstract

The Direct Negative/Direct Plate technology employs electro-erosion printing techniques to directly generate negatives and offset printing plates suitable for use in many printing and publishing applications. Recently we have been developing materials which yield functional characteristics which are considerably improved over the first product (IBM electroNeg) to use this process. The physical parameters that govern the suitability of materials for use in the demanding environment of both electro-erosion printing and offset printing is discussed and some results and techniques for measuring these parameters described.
