Measuring ink spreading and penetration for high speed inkjet printing

Sarah Krainer, Ulrich Hirn

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


In this study High Speed Inkjet (HSI) ink
penetration is investigated. In HSI printing
the penetration speed and wetting of the ink
is important, especially at short timescales.
Therefore, the use of measurement
techniques which can capture these
parameters at short timescales is advisable.
Four measurement techniques are
evaluated: Penetration Dynamics Analyzer
(PDA), Fibro – Contact angle measurement,
IGT – Penetration Test and Automatic
Scanning Absorptometer (ASA). These test
the liquid / paper behaviour using different
principles of measurement. We want to
compare the techniques and evaluate the
plausibility of the results from these
different instruments.
