Temperature Control in Thermal Inkjet
Abstract:Current demands for higher production and higher throughput put usually print-heads to the limits of their thermal performance. Due to the very nature of the inkjet ejection process heat tends to accumulate on the print-heads parts, raising its temperature and challenging its Print Quality performance and Reliability. The change of the viscosity properties with temperature result in variations in drop weight that alter the colors along the page. Some materials and special glues can break down after many thermal cycles above an specific temperature. For that reason it is of great importance to have a temperature control strategy. Hardware and software strategies are discussed in this paper.

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.
