The drying of water-based inkjet ink applied to media by high speed continuous forms inkjet printers, is an evolving post processing product for the printing market. The efficiency of the dryers to remove the water and glycols, semi-volatile, components of the ink can be determined by laboratory analytical techniques. Analytical methods are employed to determine the level of dryness of inkjet printed paper utilizing Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR). Experimental testing methods and the resultant data are presented, showing the ability to discern the level of dryness of a water-based inkjet printed paper sample. The methods provide effective tools for analysis of drying, and point to methods by which real time inline printer feedback may be developed to effectively improve the drying output.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
