The interactions of ink jet inks with the substrate are very complex and dependent on various parameters. Since aqueous-based inks are most popular, this work is concentrated on aqueous-based inks in drop-on-demand printer. The rapid growth of ink jet printers has created a rapid expansion of ink jet paper market. However, it requires proper understanding of ink drying and ink-paper interaction. Wide variation of print quality is expected due to variation of ink formulation and paper properties. The print quality is highly dependent on paper properties specifically on its smoothness and absorption characteristics. In this study, the smoothness and absorption properties of different grades of papers are measured. A Bristow tester is used to study ink-paper interaction and drying time at different circumferential speeds. It has been seen that the paper properties have a significant effect on print quality. The study shows that the smoothness and the absorption characteristics of paper affects ink-paper interaction and finally the Image quality of printer.

  • 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.
