Interactions of a Single Ink-Jet Droplet with Textile Printing Surfaces
Abstract:We are conducting research to better understand ink/textile-media interactions. The interactions of a single ink jet droplet with well-characterized surfaces and with selected textile surfaces are being studied using two experimental setups. Droplet impingement on silicon wafers with well-characterized surface chemistry and roughness, and selected fabrics is being investigated. The initial droplet impingement data obtained lay a foundation for conducting further study on droplet impinge onto textiles, which should lead to a better understanding of the interaction of an individual droplet with textile printing surfaces

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.
