In this study, the optimal process condition was induced about the pillar arrangement process of applying the screen printing method in the manufacture process of vacuum glazing panel. The high precision screen printing is technology which pushes out the paste and spreads it by using the squeegee on the stainless steel plate in which the pattern is formed. The screen printing method is much used in the flat panel display field including the LCD, PDP, FED, organic EL, and etc for forming the high precision micro-pattern. Also a number of studies of screen printing method have been conducted as the method for the cost down through the improvement of productivity. The screen printing method has many parameters. So we used Taguchi method in order to decrease test frequencies and optimize this parameters efficiently. In this study, experiments of pillar arrangement were performed by using Taguchi experimental design. We analyzed experimental results and obtained optimal conditions which are 4 m/s of squeegee speed, $40^{\circ}$ of squeegee angle and distance between metal mask and glass.
