The Application of Drop-on-Demand Ink Jet Technology to Color Printing
by F. C. Lee, R. N. Mills, F. E. Talke
The application of drop-on-demand ink jet technology to high-frequency and high-resolution color printing is investigated using an experimental multi-nozzle print head. Cross talk and drop misregistration are examined as a function of drop ejection frequency. Typical print samples from scanned and computer-generated data are obtained and the dependence of print quality on various parameters such as drop ejection frequency, ink composition, and paper quality is discussed.
