A Tool for Monitoring Piezoelectric Micro-Pumps
Abstract:Piezoelectric micro-pumps are largely used in drop on demand applications for medical purpose and in the printing industry. In order to diagnose and control such a system, a non-linear model has been developed to predict the velocity of the ejected drop. We show here that data from experiments are in good agreement with our model predictions, showing that the ejection velocity is strong a function of the applied voltage.

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.
