Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy for analysis of residual solvent of printed inkjet ink on-site is newly developed. In the industry of water-based inkjet ink, heat drying process is performed after printing. However, residual solvents remain on the printed matter after the drying process, and these residual solvents affect ink-fixing properties. Gas-chromatography (GC) or gas-chromatography mass-spectrometry (GC/MS) is conventionally used for analyzing residual solvent of the printed matter. However, this method takes several days to obtain results. To analyze residual solvent on-site, NIR spectroscopy is developed, and the value can be quantitatively predicted on-site, and easily. Also, spatial resolution is improved with NIR compared with GC/MS measurement. Therefore, spatial distribution information can be obtained. Here, NIR spectroscopy for analyzing residual solvents in a short period of time, evaluating easily, and on-site is reported. Also, the relationship between residual solvent and fixing properties of the printed matter is studied in detail. The principle of measurement, and some application examples and relationships with fixing properties of the printed matter are reported in this paper.

  • 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.
