The increased usage of UV-inkjet for printing porous fiber based products has created a need to study the interactions between paper coating, ink and process. In this paper we have studied, how coating porosity affects print quality formation and ink curing degree of UV-curable inkjet inks. Results show, that paper requirements for UV-inkjet differ clearly from those, which are usually connected to good inkjet paper. Paper properties have quite a remarkable effect on print gloss and density formation, although the use of pinning lamps reduces this dependency. Ink curing degree depends also on the properties of the paper and interactions between ink and paper.

  • 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.
