  • Patent number: 5330875
    Abstract: A lithographic printing plate precursor and process for its utilization have been discovered through which negative and positive original images can be printably reproduced on the plate precursor in substantially fewer development steps. The precursor plate is exposed sequentially to either the negative or positive original with the resultant image subsequently developable in a single process or step. The process is achieved by using a precursor plate having two coatings of significantly different photographic sensitivity to light, i.e., speed as characterized by "camera speed" or "contact speed" and imagewise exposing the originals in sequence to alternative speeds. The contact speed coating may be negative-working or positive working while the camera speed coating is negative-working. The camera speed coating is developed followed by exposure of the contact speed coating. Images produced at camera speed are removed and non-image bearing portions of the contact speed coating are removed.

  • Patent number: 5247313
    Abstract: A direct color thermal printing method records a full-color image containing black characters on a thermosensitive color recording medium having three laminated thermosensitive recording layers. Three color components of each pixel are sequentially read out from three color frame memories. If all of the three color components of a pixel correspond to the maximum densities, that pixel is determined to be printed in black, and is stored as black pixel data in a black line buffer memory. When recording the black pixels, a thermal head is driven to apply a predetermined maximum amount of head energy to the thermosensitive color recording medium, for simultaneously coloring the three thermosensitive recording layers in accordance with the black pixel data.

  • Patent number: 4211834
    Abstract: A photolithographic method wherein a mask is made by pattern exposing and developing a o-quinone diazide sensitized phenol-formaldehyde resist layer, the formed resist mask then being used directly as an exposure mask for a layer of deep ultraviolet (less than 3000A) sensitive resist such as an alkyl methacrylate resist.Since alkyl methacrylate resists are not sensitive to light above 3000A and phenol-formaldehyde resists are opaque to light below 3000A, phenol-formaldehyde resists may be used directly as photoexposure masks for alkyl methacrylate resists using any broad band exposure light source which includes deep ultraviolet. The direct use of a phenol-formaldehyde resist layer as an exposure mask for an alkyl methacrylate resist layer allows more flexible and practical use of resist exposure techniques, including fabrication of an etch resistant mask of high aspect ratio and high resolution without fabrication of an intermediate metallic mask from a material such as chromium.

  • Patent number: 4195995
    Abstract: A method produces a reproducible image on a film in a single machine. Steps include exposing the film to an image, passing the exposed film to a developing station and developing the film. An improved method controllably recovers the exposed film from the single machine without developing the film. The exposed film is subsequently exposed to a second different image in the single machine to form a composite exposed film. The composite exposed film is passed to the developing station and developed in the single machine to produce a composite image film for reproduction purposes.
