An investigation has been carried out on the control of a micro-droplet in electrostatic inkjet phenomena, because the electrostatic inkjet has a merit that the formation and locus of the droplet can be controlled by the application of the electric field and it is possible to treat highly viscous liquid. It was observed that a Taylor cone of the paste was formed at an end of a tube and the tip of the cone was broken to form a very small droplet at the beginning of the corona discharge. Droplets of paste that contains Ag nanoparticles are injected on a glass substrate to form electrode patterns. The formation of the droplet is controlled by the application of pulse voltage between the plate electrode and the fine tube that is filled with Ag paste. A multi-layered printing was realized by over-coating insulative glass paste on line electrodes. A direct 3D printing was also developed by taking advantage that highly viscous liquid can be ejected by the electrostatic inkjet system.
