IMI Europe Inkjet Summer School Scheduled from July 3-7, 2023 at Cambridge, UK
08 March 2023: IMI Europe Inkjet Summer School 2023 will be held from July 3-7, 2023 at The Møller Centre, Cambridge, UK. All attendees are invited to a free guided tour punt trip around the Cambridge colleges, including refreshments on Tuesday, July 4, 2023 at 18.00 hours. The Inkjet Academy is the ideal introduction to inkjet technology, giving your understanding of the industry an expert start. The course is presented by Dr. Mark Bale of DoDxAct and Dr. Tim Phillips of Catenary Solutions/IMI Europe.
How Inkjet Printing Really Works is an in-depth course that couples the characteristics of droplet formation, landing and spreading to the acoustic and fluidic behaviour in the printhead. The course leader is Prof. Dr. Frits Dijksman, University of Twente, Netherlands.
Jetting Functional Fluids; Rheology, Deposition, Process & Development shows you how to develop an inkjet functional printing application, including printhead selection, formulating an ink with functional materials and jetting functional fluids onto a substrate. The course is led by Dr. Neil Chilton & Dr. Clare Conboy of Printed Electronics Ltd.
Inkjet Drop Behaviour; How Ink Behaves On, In and Above Surfaces During Inkjet Printing, covers the detailed behaviour of ink drops during inkjet printing, both in flight and when interacting with surfaces, providing a conceptual understanding of complex processes affecting print quality. The course leaders are from TriJet, the University of Cambridge and Advance Inkjet Solutions Ltd.
Selecting & Driving Printheads; Drive Electronics and Waveforms covers everything you need to know about the hardware and software required for driving printheads, including printhead selection, screening algorithms, drive electronics and waveform optimisation.
Inkjet Ink Manufacturing; Manufacturing Inks For Performance & Reliability covers inkjet ink design for manufacture, testing and reliability, scale-up for manufacture and manufacturing itself. It also covers ink plant design, required equipment, quality control and commercial considerations. Course leaders are Dr. Chris Nicholas of Smart Chemistry and Dr. Tim Phillips of Catenary Solutions.
