Tim Phillips of IMI Europe and Catenary Solutions discusses the pros and cons of open and closed ink models in digital textile printing.
Frazer Chesterman of the InPrint team caught up with Managing Director, Dr Tim Phillips, to find out more about IMI Europe's Inkjet Engineering and Inkjet Development Conference in Lausanne later this month.
Elsa Callini of ebeam Technologies describes the technology and benefits of electron beam curing technology for inkjet printing.
Dr Pete Gooden of Promethean Particles describes the technology behind its innovative nanoparticle synthesis method, and the commercial promise it brings.
Amy Vigrass of IMI Europe gives a summary of her experiences at the HP Demo Center tour - part of the Inkjet Winter Workshop we held in Barcelona in January.
Inkjet ink viscosity is a complex topic requiring specialist equipment and techniques to characterise fully. Viscosity is a key parameter mediating drop formation as well as substrate behaviour so is vital to understand in ink development. Mats Larsson from Malvern Instruments will describe the use of characterisation equipment to measure the rheological behaviour of inkjet inks at the IMI Europe Inkjet Ink Development Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland, 15-16 March 2017.
Waveform generation and optimisation is a crucial but often overlooked aspect of inkjet development. ImageXpert’s presentation at the IMI Europe Inkjet Ink Development Conference in Lausanne, 15-16 March 2017, will give an overview of the tools and techniques that make waveform optimisation more streamlined and effective.
In order to exploit the potential of inkjet printing, better understanding of droplet behaviour, both in flight and on the substrate, is needed. Modelling is a good way of gaining insight into the phenomena which drive the different stages of the printing process. Jakko Nieuwenkamp of Reden will make a presentation based on this work at the IMI Europe Inkjet Engineering Conference in Lausanne, 14 March 2017.
