This proceeding describes the development of two apparatus used to characterise ink-jet fluids. In term of Linear Viscoelasticity (LVE), the recently developed Piezo Axial Vibrator (PAV) was used to characterize the high frequency response of model ink-jet fluids. Two series of model ink-jet fluids were investigated. The first series was a mixture of diethyl phthalate and mono-disperse poly(styrene) and the second series examined the influence of dispersant and pigment on a commercial UV carrier fluid (varnish). Both the polymer and pigment loaded fluids showed a development of LVE with increasing concentration. A filament stretching apparatus, called the “Cambridge Trimaster” was used to characterize the fluids high speed stretching and break-up behaviour. Examples of the apparatus response for polymer solutions are given. Both apparatus provide valuable data in relation to the coupling of ink-jet rheology and jetting properties.

  • 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.
