Control of the Dot Height of Pigmented Ink for Good Clarity
Abstract:Clarity is one of the important physical parameters to characterize the quality of a print image. The print at low clarity will be recognized lacking in glossiness. Generally the pigmented ink is inferior to the dye-based ink in clarity of printing.
The present paper studies the clarity of print of the pigmented ink both theoretically and experimentally and shows that the clarity of print at low duties is determined predominantly by the height of ink dots formed on a paper. In addition, we propose techniques to control the dot height and show possibilities to improve the clarity of the pigmented ink.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
