Advanced Functional & Industrial Printing
27 Mar 2019 - 28 Mar 2019
Functional and industrial print applications are leading the change in the production processes of today. Screen and digital technologies are adapting rapidly to the market demands and open new opportunities. The Advanced Functional & Industrial Printing conference is the only European event at this level that provides manufacturers, brands, printers and researchers with such a broad view on the world of industrial printing.
Meteor Inkjet Ltd’s product manager for DropWatching Systems, Matthew Pullen, will be presenting 'Waveforms for industrial inkjet printheads' at 14:00 on Thursday 28th March.
Printheads are fundamental components of all industrial inkjet systems and the choice of printhead driving waveform can make the difference between dazzling success and dismal failure. The subject of waveforms can seem complex and baffling given the myriad of printhead types, all driven in unique ways, together with a seemingly infinite variety of fluids. What is a waveform? How is it developed? Why are there so many different printhead implementations? Can a waveform be optimised for a specific ink/printhead combination? How do unusual fluids impact the choice of printhead and waveform? The answers to these questions and more are particularly relevant in the functional print space.
