Waterless Inkjet Process for High Speed Printing
Abstract:The Xerox CiPress High Speed Waterless Ink Jet System uses many Solid Ink inkjet technologies from existing office products. One significant difference between the office Solid Ink products and CiPress is the printing architecture. The office ColorQube family of products first builds an image on a drum in multiple passes and transfers that image to paper when complete. The CiPress production system prints directly to paper and the ink is subsequently spread mechanically using high pressure. This process requires careful control of the paper temperature to achieve the best image quality.

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.
