Advanced manufacturing: inkjet printer features

Our colleagues recently returned from a trip to the office of Memjet, a manufacturer of flexible inkjet technology. But before we reveal the details of this trip, it’s worthwhile to talk generally about advanced manufacturing and inkjet printing.

The core idea of advanced manufacturing is to use innovative technology to improve processes or products. These technologies are used in a wide range of areas from additive manufacturing to digital design. The use of innovations is intended to increase the profitability of the company and its competitiveness in the market.

70 years ago, when the first inkjet printers were released, very few people thought that these devices play a significant role in the production. Currently, inkjet printing is used not only in offices and homes but also allows you to create electronic devices.

In more detail, inkjet printing is a technology for obtaining images using microscopic droplets of ink that are sprayed from the printer onto paper, plastic or other material. Inkjet printing uses a wide variety of materials, including plastics, sand mixtures, and even metals.

The printhead, one of the most technically sophisticated elements of an inkjet printer, is used to spray droplets. The result of product success will depend on how accurately the printhead is adjusted.

Our specialists have been developing their expertise in the development of controllers for printheads for several years. Promwad draws the experience and knowledge of such large printhead suppliers as Xaar and Memjet. As always, we are open to your questions and are ready to help you in developing your innovative product.
