Stability Analysis of a Drop Generation from a Nozzle in an Electric Field with Corona Discharge
Abstract:Stability of a conducting drop hanging from a nozzle in an electric field with corona discharge was examined theoretically for the first time. By this static model with linear stability analysis, stability of electrostatic Inkjet process was estimated. The basic equations, the augmented Young-Laplace equation for drop shape and the Poisson equation for electric field, were coupled and solved by the Finite Element Method. According to the initial condition of its shape, a drop is deformed and subject to corona discharge with the increment of non-dimensional electric field. It was found this static model was applicable to estimate the range of stable jetting and the existence of corona discharge reduces its stable jetting range.

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.
