Dynamics of Impaction and Post-Impaction Behavior of Drop-On-Demand (DOD) Inkjet Drops on Textiles
Abstract:In order to better understand the drop impaction and post- impaction dynamics of digital textile printing, various numbers of drop-on-demand inkjet drops were deposited on textiles, and the process was visualized using a high speed camera. As a comparison, experiments were also conducted on a high quality inkjet paper under the same conditions. Dynamics of DOD drops accumulation and spreading on the substrates and final state ink distribution show drastic differences between digital printing on textiles and paper. The effect of yarn hairiness on ink deposition was also demonstrated.

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.
