The IMI Europe Inkjet Engineering Conference is aimed at printing system development engineers looking to find out about the latest products, technology and techniques, and exchange ideas with peers. The conference covers printheads, drive electronics, software and integration.
Dr Jozef Vlaskamp will present 'Challenges in Ink System Design and Operation’
Abstract: This presentation will cover some of the fundamental issues related to building and maintaining robust ink delivery systems (IDS). The challenges for IDS designers and builders are increasing - more industrial printheads require controlled/adjustable recirculating flow; other printheads and fluids may benefit from low flow recirculation; system sizes are increasing which increases complexity; fluids may need degassing or heating. This presentation will cover these key issues including tubing, pressure control, flow type, different IDS design options, pitfalls and troubleshooting common problems.
