Designing and Optimizing an Ink Cartridge for Use with Higher Viscous Inks
• a minimization of the impact of the flow resistance throughout the whole operation window of the print head and cartridge,
• an even back pressure curve with a moderate increase during the cartridge ink supply period and
• a high ink yield of the cartridge.
From a detailed discussion of the design process important parameters are derived, concerning:
• the material selection,
• the cartridge construction and engineering and
• testing and approval.
In the result a cartridge functionality is achieved, which allows printing with an arbitrary work load throughout the operation window with small restrictions in the low temperature regime.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
