High Speed Xerox Inkjet Technology
Abstract:A modular print head strategy gives the capability to move Xerox's inkjet technology from the desktop and office area to the higher speeds required for the production market. An array of 3 inch print heads can be used to print images at speeds faster than 300 feet per minute. The heads use a non-aqueous, phase change ink which is solid at room temperature. When jetted, the solid ink sits on the surface of the paper, which decreases image bleeding and show through and would eliminate the need of a drier and media preconditioning. An image on web array (IOWA) sensor can continually monitor test patterns during printing. This IOWA sensor can enable color to color registration, image uniformity, and jetting efficiency to be continually monitored and adjusted during printing.

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.
