Abstract:Captive continuous inkjet (CIJ) is a potentially disruptive inkjet technology recently developed in the Kodak Technology Center. The captive continuous inkjet technology is expected to deliver the best of both drop-on-demand (DOD) inkjet and continuous inkjet (CIJ) technologies: high resolution, compact size, and low cost associated with traditional DOD technologies and the high throughput and high reliability of traditional CIJ technology. In this paper, we will provide a description of this new architecture, its function and why we believe it to be advantaged over both traditional CIJ and DOD technologies. We will discuss the key technology elements with details on the design, fabrication, and characterization of captive CIJ devices, including results from simulations and experimental studies.

- 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.
