This course focuses on the preparation of inkjet ink concentrates, starting with the pigment or dye and ending with the dispersant. It employs a practical approach to help students better understand the theory of particle stabilization, which in turn explains the role of dispersants in an ink. The course content provides a clear explanation of a complex and intricate topic, while also diving into the most exciting inkjet sector in the current market: textile inkjet. It looks at the textile inkjet market, explores the key challenges facing formulators when working with dyes instead of pigments, and discusses how grinding equipment plays a vital role in the preparation of concentrates.

Inkjet printing is all about depositing on demand droplets with well-defined volume and speed on a precisely given location on a substrate. A piezo driven print head is an ensemble of closely-packed and highly-integrated micro channels, each channel partly covered with a piezoelectric actuator. Each channel acts as an acoustic cavity, of which the fluid dynamical and acoustical characteristics in the time and frequency domain determine the droplet generating characteristics of the print head. The aim of this course is to couple the characteristics of droplet formation and landing to the acoustics of the fluidics of the print head behind the nozzle all the way up into the ink supply. Special attention is paid to non-linear effects related to the meniscus motion in the nozzle, inertia effects due to partly filling of the nozzle and droplet formation, and the jetting of viscoelastic inks.

Toners play a very critical role in establishing the value of an electrophotographic print. Since toner comes in physical contact with all critical steps of an electrophotographic cycle, its properties not only affect the final printed document but also the life time of components used in other sub-systems. Thus, it is not a surprise that the composition of toner is often determined by the requirements of the finished print, as well as the technology selected in other steps of electrophotography. A toner polymers selection is also dictated by the toner manufacturing process used to produce them. This course describes how toner polymers are selected for both Melt Pulverized Toners (MPT) and Chemically Prepared Toners (CPT). Effect of toner additives, such as pigments, surface treatment, etc. on fusing and other toner properties are also explained. The underlying polymer architecture and viscoelasticity concepts that govern toner binders are described and briefly discussed. Polymer models described in this course are equally applicable to polymeric substances used in other parts of the fuser, such as, elastomers and release fluids. Since the toner composition and fusing performance are intricately intertwined, the course describes the influence of toner and the fusing technology employed on the print’s physical and image permanence. During the course, the selection process for most toner components is described including how these requirements are being continuously guided by environmental, governmental, and health regulations. The course includes a discussion of new developments taking place in toners, such as low energy requirements, “green” toners that comprise bio-resins, and toner/print recyclability.

During the past decade, there has been a remarkable convergence of two disparate technologies: digital printing of text/images and the fabrication of physical objects. This convergence—a blending of traditional printing methods, recent advances in materials science, and established manufacturing methods—has brought about the foundation of a new technology: digital fabrication. Digital fabrication approaches are enabling new discoveries at the laboratory bench and providing new efficiencies and unprecedented product customization on the manufacturing floor. Digital fabrication methods—along with the development of “functional inks”—are making it possible to print complete electronic circuits, optical devices, mechanical structures, and even new biological materials. The objective of this short course is to provide an introduction to the rapidly emerging science and technology of digital fabrication. It includes an up-to-date overview of the methods, materials, and processes that are reshaping manufacturing and enabling new commercial applications in electronics, MEMS, and the life sciences. Finally, the class examines factors that are moving digital fabrication from a niche technology toward a new manufacturing paradigm.

The paper recycling process has been developed to unlock the “urban forest” of read newspapers and magazines as an inexpensive source for paper fibers. In the meantime, the recycling cycle has proven to be an essential part of the sustainable handling of resources and all members of the paper chain need to contribute to its continuance. While digital printing has many environmental benefits, some print processes can lead to severe problems in paper recycling. This short course—supported by videos and other descriptive material—explains deinking in the industrial paper recycling process, how this is simulated and evaluated in the lab, and the challenges presented by different printed products. It also looks into the current and future European ecolabels and tax regulations for printed products that have gained importance.

This course describes the inkjet ink design process and requirements for successfully and reliably using a wide range of organic and inorganic pigments and of functional materials for inkjet printing. Methods of pigment stabilization are discussed. Details of dispersion technology and DVLO theory are used to highlight the importance of chemically stabilizing the surfaces of pigment particles. The Stokes-Einstein equation describing Brownian motion and Stokes law describing gravitational settling are used to understand the inkjet pigment ink requirement for flocculation and not agglomeration. Practical examples of processing pigment dispersions and the types of chemical dispersants used in inkjet formulations are also be presented.

There are around 300 new patent applications published each month that can give an insight into new inkjet-related developments. However searching for these patents, then filtering out the most interesting ones is time consuming. Willis has been following inkjet patents since the 1980s and regularly monitoring patent applications since 1997. This course reviews some of the developments that have occurred over the past 2 years, in particular encompassing printhead and system technology such as ink supplies, nozzle maintenance, and drop detection. The assessment includes thermal inkjet, Landa Digital, and other transfer processes; challenges for high-speed printing such as misting, condensation, and missing nozzle detection and correction; and new applications such as flooring, footwear, and cosmetics.

As modern manufacturing technology is evolving, the trend is to be digital, on demand, and green. Of course, cost and performance—along with risk and benefit—will always be factors when choosing a manufacturing technology. This short course starts with a brief overview of modern printing technology, such as screen, offset, electrophotography, inkjet, etc., and its migration to become a 2D additive manufacturing tool for modern electronic devices: displays, photovoltaics, flexible/wearable electronics, sensors, RFID, etc. This is followed with a review of 3D printing technology, specifically stereolithography, selective sintering, selective melting, direct ink printing, hot melting printing, and inkjet printing, and so on. The technical challenge to implement these technologies is discussed.

In spite of the numerous technological advances that have been made in the area of toners, development, and rendering schemes, image quality is ultimately determined by the customer holding the final print. From image gloss to color reproduction, and including print physical performance, the print’s final properties are directly dictated by the fusing step. Most conventional electrophotographic (EP) printing systems require a fusing sub-system that takes the discrete toner particles and both fuses (coalesces) them together and fixes them to the media. This process is required to produce an attractive, durable image that is bonded tightly to the substrate. This course reviews the fundamental functions of fusing and details past and current fusing technology trends in the EP industry. The physics of each fusing technology is discussed, with a specific focus on each technology’s strengths and weaknesses. Physics and mathematical models of thermal fusing are described along with the critical parameters in fusing steps. In the later part of the course, the most common fusing technologies are discussed, covering the critical parameters and failure modes that govern each fusing methodology. The course also covers the scientific and engineering challenges that are faced during both the technology and product-development cycles of a fuser. Common tests for image permanence are discussed along with the available options to enhance print physical performance.

Fundamental understanding of how inks wet, spread, de-wet, and pin on a print surface is important to the quality of the print output, but it is even more crucial to modern printed (or flexible) electronics manufacturing, where print resolution and device functional performance are paramount. This course starts with a tutorial on surface characterization and wetting fundamentals. Discussion includes the understanding of measurement tools for surfaces and coatings, wetting dynamics, and the meanings of these measurements. The importance of understanding and controlling ink wetting, spreading, and evaporation in digital manufacturing is illustrated. The mechanism for the formation of the “coffee ring” stain is overviewed and countermeasures are discussed.
