Drop on Demand Technologies
Drop on demand ink jet printers are different to CIJ - continuous ink jet printers, as only ink drops that are required are produced.
Two technologies are used for drop on demand printing: impulse jet and valve jet.
Impulse jet :
With bubble jet, water-based ink is used. The water is heated until bubbles form, and the ink is forced through the nozzle.
With piezo printers, an electrical voltage is generated, causing the piezo crystals to expand, forcing the ink through a fine nozzle. The drop volume is regulated via an electric pulse.
Pressure valve printers are only used in industrial applications. The valves, which are integrated into the nozzles, only open to allow drops to leave the nozzle.
