Modular Ink Jet Print Engine for Industrial Applications
A modular ink jet print engine, is one of the best solution in order to help the industrial producer to make the bridge from hybrid to digital press. During and after this transition period, the product will be produced with the same technology without big difference for the final customer. It's an education phase for everybody.
In this paper, we describe an ink jet print engine able to be implemented into a digital and/or analog industrial press. This document will explain the architecture of the print engine including the data management, hydraulic and fluid control, software, firmware architecture and the capabilities to address monochrome, color and others applications. For conclusion, experiences on industrial equipments and applications are described.

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.
