Principles and structure of Continuous Inkjet Coders
This section explains the internal path and circulation principle of industrial-use inkjet printers.
- 1Main tank
- Stores the ink used in printing.
Ink recovered from the gutter is also returned here.
- Pressurizes and feeds the ink from the main tank to the print head.
- 3Decompression valve
- Adjusts the ink pressure.
- 4Piezo element
- Applies electro-magnetic pulses to the ink stream in order to separate the ink into particles.
- Discharges the ink.
- 6Charging electrode plates
- Gives a negative electric charge to the ink particles formed from the ink column.
- 7Charge sensor
- Monitors whether the ink particles have the proper charge.
- 8Deflecting electrode plates
- Generate a magnetic field to deflect the ink particles according to their charge.
This directs ink particles onto the print target.
- Collects the ink particles not used in printing.
- Retrieves the ink particles from the gutter so they can collect in the main tank.
- 1Main tank
- The ink collected here circulates again.
- - Solvent tank
- Feeds solvent into the main tank to control the ink viscosity when the ink in the main tank is too thick.
- - Ink tank
- Feeds ink into the main tank when it is empty or when the ink is too thin.
