Optimizing Ink Jet Dyes and Dye Dilutions for Color Gamut

Modern ink-jet printers often provide more than 4 print heads. The additional channels can be used for faster printing, diluted process colours or additional dyes (green, orange). A proprietary gamut evaluation program is used to investigate the benefits of diluted inks vs. the addition of colours. The experiments are made using a four- ink printer. The eight-ink system has to be simulated by specially designed colour wedges that are printed with 4 inks each and are later assembled into colour space ribs. The colour gamut is calculated as the colour space volume sustained by the ribs using a spectral interpolation technique. The evaluation includes colour gamut size, tone reproduction and image quality criteria as well as permanence considerations.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
