Abstract:

An analytical computer model was created to describe performance of an A.B. Dick Company printing head in a specific configuration. The computer model consists of an executive routine that calls on 11 subroutines each subroutine treats a particular aspect of the ink-jet printing process. The analytical basis for the subroutine was compared with laboratory observations modifications and refinements were made as necessary. The resulting program is a useful tool over defined ranges of input conditions output parameters are predicted with modest accuracy. Experimental hardware was constructed for testing the program. Several recommendations for operation of ink-jet printing systems have evolved. The Analytical Computer Model should be tested under additional combinations of input conditions to better define its capabilities and limitations. Author
