At Castellon in Spain, the ceramic division of System will be attending the technical sessions of Qualicer 2018, the international ceramic congress with a paper entitled: “Improvement of printing quality through satellites formation control”.

The study-research has been carried out at System by the R&D laboratory and it illustrates a general model concerning drop formation process in piezo-inkjet digital printing systems, which involves drop speed and satellites number. The developed model has been validated by means of experimental analysis performed on a printing system reproducing an industrial machine and considering a wide variety of inks and printhead. The main features of the model involve directly ink rheology and printhead geometry to the final goal of printing quality.

The R&D department of System Ceramics represents one of the most relevant technological center worldwide, where highly-skilled staff carries out tests and research of great relevance.

At Qualicer 2018 the paper will be illustrated on February 13th at 12.30 pm inside the C session dedicated to Ceramic Tile Manufacture.
