A statistical design of experiments (DOE) technique has been used to study varying levels of silica gel and polymeric binder in ink jet paper coating formulations. Paper coatings from the DOE showed widely variable print qualities. Computer analyzed image analysis was used to quantify color gamut, linewidth, sharpness, raggedness, bleed, and mottle. Using these data and statistical deconvolution of the DOE response surface, the dependence of each print quality measure on the level of the silica gel in the coating was determined. Generally, higher levels of silica gel result in enhanced print quality, especially in color vividness.

  • 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.
