How to Stop Satellites From Ruining Your Print

In this post, we have a look at one of the most common inkjet problems seen by our customers: satellite drops. Satellites, the small droplets unintentionally formed during jetting, can cause major print quality and system maintenance headaches. We will ...

How to Optimize a Waveform

In our introductory article on inkjet waveforms, we described what a waveform is and how the process of applying it to the printhead works. Now we consider how to optimise that waveform to get better jetting, using a general dropwatcher ...

Pros and Cons of Recirculating Printheads

Printheads that recirculate ink have been around for a while now and have been heavily adopted by the fast-growing ceramics market. But have you ever wondered why it is important for some applications and whether you should be considering it? ...

Does My Ink Need Degassing?

Degassing, sometimes called de-bubbling, involves the extraction of dissolved gas or microbubbles from the bulk ink. In this post we describe the positive effects it can have on your jetting performance and why you should consider adding it to your ...

Why You Should Pursue Grayscale Printing

Most modern industrial inkjet print applications make use of greyscale printing. In this outing, we are going to talk about the difference between binary and greyscale jetting, why grayscale has become so popular, and some of the considerations when designing ...

All About Ink Filtration

Filtration is an important step in the ink manufacturing process, but experience tells us that just because the supplier put your ink through a filter does not mean you can skip filtering it in your system. Ink changes over time ...

Which Printhead Should I Use?

What we want to try and address in this post is the common question of “which printhead should I use?”. Why is this question so common? Most likely, it is a combination of a large number of options to choose ...

The History of (And Differences Between) Piezo, Thermal, and Continuous Inkjet Printing

In this post, we look at some of the original innovations upon which today’s inkjet printing industry is built and how they have matured into three distinct technologies: piezoelectric, thermal, and continuous inkjet printing. The principal aim is gain some ...
