Inkjet printing is becoming widely used in areas beyond current document printing such as digital fabrication and industrial printing. Success in product development for different digital fabrication and industrial printing applications is greatly dependent on the fluids that are printed. Xerox has developed the M-series print head, which is an innovative stainless steel head capable of jetting a wide variety of fluids at both ambient and elevated temperatures. This head has been designed to have long life and high reliability. Also it has one of the highest fluidic outputs, per linear inch, of any print head in the market today. The goal of this paper is to give the reader some understanding of following for the M-series head. First it's mechanical and fluidic design, how the print head is constructed, its high performance operation, and its ability to jet fluids at a variety of temperatures. Second the paper discusses the heads unique ability for jet to jet calibration, key implementation guidelines, and its great reliability and robustness. Third the paper talks about current uses of the head and future variations that can enable more digital fabrication and industrial printing applications. This paper describes the value of the M-series print head and its usefulness in expanding the digital fabrication and industrial printing revolution.

  • 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.
