Three Methods of Measuring Velocity of Drops in Flight Using Jetxpert
Abstract:Velocity measurements of drops-in-flight can include many different definitions. In this paper three common methods will be described and discussed: Measurement of the velocity of drops in full flight, measurement of elapsed time to drop distance of 1mm from drop emergence, and measurement of elapsed time to drop distance of 1mm from firing pulse.
This paper will also include an overview of JetXpert, the machine vision based drop-in-flight measurement system used for all three velocity measurement methods presented.

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.
