Automated Inkjet Print Head Sustainability Testing
Traditionally, print head life testing (sustainability) is performed using print tests and visual inspection to assess elapsed time to the initiation of jet drop-outs. To decrease waste, and to increase efficiency and objectivity, several machine vision-based systems have been developed to assess print head performance during life tests.
This paper will introduce several automatic methods that have been developed to address print head life testing using both existing and novel systems.

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.
