Managing Pile-Height through Image-Based Compensation in Digital Flexible Package Printing
In this paper we describe an imaging based for managing pile height that normalizes the surface height across the substrate. The solution proposed here tries to intelligently balance the ink-layer discrepancies across the roll width using image-based compensation so that cylindrical shape of roll is maintained. This enables the film/substrate to advance at a uniform rate, and the differential rolling stress across the substrate cross section to approach the normal operational range. This innovation will enable digital printing to play a more significant role in roll-toroll based packaging applications such as flexible packaging.

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.
