Conductive inks

I know these are better done with a rotary press.
Can this be done on a clam shell, and if so... Where do I begin?

Hi Shawn,
The rotary press' ability is in the consistant deposit. For myself I was printing both conventional and UV conductive inks about 5 years ago, even then, through screen making we were able to achieve consistant deposit which leads to predictable resistance on both a clamshell and Sak. cylinder.
So where do you begin, with your customers specifications on resistance. Next with your ink manufacturer with his recomendations, my opinion is UV through Norcote. After that is test at the press for consistant deposit and log the results.
Hope this helps, keep us informed on your progress.
