Abstract

In inkjet printing the ink is usually a suspension of particles in liquid. Suspensions usually show shear-thinning characteristics. To understand the jetting and drop generation mechanism of suspensions we investigated similar systems for which the rheological properties are well characterized. As "inks," Newtonian fluids (water-glycerin mixture) and shear-thinning fluids (xanthan gum solutions in the Newtonian fluid) were prepared. The diameter and velocity of droplet were measured while varying waveform of bipolar shape to the piezoelectric inkjet head and the effects of the rheological properties were examined. The result shows that the impinging velocity is strongly affected by zero-shear and extensional viscosities while the drop size is dependent on infinite shear viscosity.
