Piezo Ink Jet Simulations Using the Finite Difference Level Set Method and Equivalent Circuit
Abstract:We developed a finite difference ink jet simulation code based on the coupled level set projection method on nonrectangular grids. A slipping contact model was applied to resolve the contradiction of the moving contact point and the no-slip condition. For practical applications, the code was connected to an equivalent circuit which receives a dynamic voltage and simulates the ink behavior in the supply channel under the influence of ink cartridge, vibration plate, and PZT actuator. Simulation results of continuous droplet ejections are given and discussed.

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.
