A Modular Printing (MP) architecture can significantly reduce hardware cost and improve configurability of digital printing systems. However image-to-image misregistration as the result of paper handling and multiple imaging modules could introduce halo and halftone moiré artifacts and thereby present a challenge for print quality control. In MP systems, paper passes multiple imaging, development and fusing stations. Differences among subsystems of the print engines contribute to misregistration on the prints. In this paper we present a method to measure and characterize the image-to-image (I-to-I) misregistration in MP systems. Based on the misregistration measurements, we can parse the misregistration into four main types: translation, rotation, magnification, and residual deformation. A parameterized digital compensation method can reduce misregistration for different media types based on the measurement.

  • 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.
