Research on the Performance of Edible Ink-jet Ink
Abstract:Nowadays, people pay more attention to green printing and environmental protection printing ink, which has become the mainstream in the field of printing, and the recent voice is higher nowadays. Edible ink-jet ink is water-based and environmental friendly and all of its raw materials reach the food sanitation standards. It can be directly printed on the surface of food, medicine and packaging in the non-contact ink-jet printing way. The ink samples were prepared by adding different amount of dye, resin and surface active agent. The viscosity and surface tension of the samples were tested, and the influence of the ink with different performance on the quality of presswork was discussed. The products printed by this ink are innocuous, pollution free and bright in colour. Line quality, field filling quality and dot quality of printing are evaluated and analyzed through a CCD camera-based industrial image analysis system. The result shows that the viscosity and surface tension of edible ink-jet ink have an effect on the quality of printing. Edible ink-jet ink, which is suitable for printing, will be available by changing the amount of resin and surface active agent.

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.
