This investigation sets out to develop a more quantitative understanding of how paper structure impacts printing ink development. Two instrumental approaches are compared to monitor liquid penetration under: (i) capillary driven flow using an ultrasound method; and (ii) forced flow using liquid porometry. Commercial printing papers including xerographic, ink jet and newsprint grades, were evaluated using swelling (water) and non-swelling (polydimethylsiloxane) probe liquids. On the basis of these experimental studies the latest progress in developing a more realistic theoretical model to describe liquid penetration in paper and better quantify its behavior will be presented.

  • 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.
