Dynamic Print Mode Control for Inkjet Printing

We introduce a novel printing scheme that allows arbitrarily shaped regions in a document to be printed using different modes. Our implementation first segments the document into two basic modes: one pass and four pass. The one pass mode results in greater print speed but has lower quality, whereas the four pass mode results in greater quality but lower print speed. Typically, the one pass mode is more suitable for text and graphics, while the four pass mode is more suitable for continuous tone pictures.

We demonstrate our method using a Lexmark Z52 print engine controlled by a Texas Instruments C6211 DSP. The resulting dynamic print mode control system can be used to continuously trade-off print speed for print quality, or to optimize print quality at a desired print speed.

  • 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.
