ABSTRACT: System Integration: an ink point of view – Frank De Voeght

Inkjet ink takes a central place in the digital printing process because it should meet both the requirements of the (integrated) printing system as those of the end user application. It means that the ink design will be a compromise between optimal system performance and optimal fit for use, to be achieved by successive iteration circles. Based on some practical case studies about customized functional inkjet inks, it will be shown how to reach the highest performance quality in the most efficient way. At the same time, this approach will reveal clearly that the ink development and formulation process have to start together with the evaluation of the other system components (including print head, drying /curing, delivery system, … ) from the start of the feasibility phase.
