Continuous inkjet[ edit ] Schematic diagram of a continuous inkjet printing process The continuous inkjet Epson paper method is used commercially for marking and coding of products and packages. InLord Kelvin patented the syphon recorderwhich recorded telegraph signals as a continuous trace on paper using an ink jet nozzle deflected by a magnetic coil.
The first commercial devices medical strip chart recorders were introduced in by Siemens.
A piezoelectric crystal creates an acoustic wave as it vibrates within the gunbody and causes the stream of liquid to break into droplets at regular intervals: This results in a controlled, variable electrostatic charge on each droplet.
Charged droplets are separated by one or more uncharged "guard droplets" to minimize electrostatic repulsion between neighbouring droplets. The charged droplets pass through another electrostatic field and are directed deflected by electrostatic deflection plates to print on the receptor material substrateor allowed to continue on undeflected to a collection gutter for re-use.
The more highly charged droplets are deflected to a greater degree. Only a small fraction of the droplets is used to print, the majority being recycled. CIJ is one of the oldest ink jet technologies in use and is fairly mature.
Another advantage is freedom from nozzle clogging as the jet is always in use, therefore allowing volatile solvents such as ketones and alcohols to be employed, giving the ink the ability to "bite" into the substrate and dry quickly.
Viscosity is monitored and a solvent or solvent blend is added to counteract solvent loss. Piezoelectric left and thermal right drop generation schematic. A print head will contain several such nozzles, and Epson paper be moved across the page as paper advances through the printer. The idea of using thermal excitation to move tiny drops of ink was developed independently by two groups at roughly the same time: Initially, inEndo's team was trying to use the piezoelectric effect to move ink out of the nozzle but noticed that ink shot out of a syringe when it was accidentally heated with a soldering iron.
Vaught's work started in late with a project to develop fast, low-cost printing. The team at HP found that thin-film resistors could produce enough heat to fire an ink droplet.
Two years later the HP and Canon teams found out about each other's work. To eject a droplet from each chamber, a pulse of current is passed through the heating element causing a rapid vaporization of the ink in the chamber and forming a bubble, which causes a large pressure increase, propelling a droplet of ink onto the paper hence Canon's trade name of Bubble Jet.
The ink's surface tensionas well as the condensation and resultant contraction of the vapor bubble, pulls a further charge of ink into the chamber through a narrow channel attached to an ink reservoir.
The inks involved are usually water-based and use either pigments or dyes as the colorant. The inks must have a volatile component to form the vapor bubble; otherwise droplet ejection cannot occur.
As no special materials are required, the print head is generally cheaper to produce than in other inkjet technologies.
Most commercial and industrial inkjet printers and some consumer printers those produced by Epson and Brother Industries use a piezoelectric material in an ink-filled chamber behind each nozzle instead of a heating element.
When a voltage is applied, the piezoelectric material changes shape, generating a pressure pulse in the fluid, which forces a droplet of ink from the nozzle. Piezoelectric also called Piezo inkjet allows a wider variety of inks than thermal inkjet as there is no requirement for a volatile component, and no issue with kogation buildup of ink residuebut the print heads are more expensive to manufacture due to the use of piezoelectric material usually PZT, lead zirconium titanate.

A DOD process uses software that directs the heads to apply between zero and eight droplets of ink per dot, only where needed. For instance, the "use-before" date is often applied to products with this technique; in this application the head is stationary and the product moves past.
Requirements of this application are high speed, a long service life, a relatively large gap between the print head and the substrate, and low operating cost.
Ink formulations[ edit ] The basic problem with inkjet inks is the conflicting requirements for a coloring agent that will stay on the surface vs.
These inks are inexpensive to manufacture, but are difficult to control on the surface of media, often requiring specially coated media. HP inks contain sulfonated polyazo black dye commonly used for dyeing leathernitrates and other compounds. While aqueous inks often provide the broadest color gamut and most vivid color, most are not waterproof without specialized coating or lamination after printing.
Most Dye -based inks, while usually the least expensive, are subject to rapid fading when exposed to light or ozone. Pigment -based aqueous inks are typically more costly but provide much better long-term durability and ultraviolet resistance.
Inks marketed as " Archival Quality " are usually pigment-based.Set your store and be able to check inventory and pick up at your local store.
