Effects of Particles on Drop Impingement
Abstract:In traditional ink-jet-printing technology, dye-based inks are primarily used. To satisfy the demands of printing on textiles, there is a need for inks containing binder and pigment particles. While progress has been made in developing particle-laden inks for use in inkjet printers, little effort has been made to understand in detail the role of particles in the overall process. In fact there is little in the refereed literature about drop formation, impaction, and spreading phenomena for particle-laden liquids although these processes have been studied extensively in the past for pure liquids. A study of the spreading dynamics of a particle-laden drop impacting a surface 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.
