IMI Europe’s Inkjet Summer School event for 2017 has six courses allowing developers to get an in-depth look at key technology areas. The line-up for 2017 includes the world-famous Inkjet Academy along with courses on printhead modelling, ink characterisation, textile printing, ink drying & curing, and functional material printing.

The first course will be on Inkjet Academy – The theory of inkjet technology, to be held on June 12 and 13, 2017, presented by Mike Willis of Pivotal Resources and Dr Alan Hudd of Alchemie Technology, giving an introduction to the basics of inkjet technology.

The second course is Fluid Dynamics & Acoustics – How inkjet printing really works, to be held on June 12 and 13, 2017, which uses the theory of fluid acoustics to understand the characteristics of droplet formation and subsequent behaviour. The course leader is Professor Frits Dijksman, University of Twente, Netherlands.

The third course on Inkjet Ink Characterisation – Viscosity, dispersions, jetting & surfaces will be held on June 14 and 15, 2017, which will cover rheology and surface tension measurements, particle and dispersion assessment, as well as drop visualisation and print quality analysis. Course leaders include Professor Long Lin of the University of Leeds, Gérald Chabanis and Dr. Steve Ward-Smith of Malvern Instruments and Kyle Pucci of ImageXpert.

The fourth course on Digital Textile Printing – Applications, ink chemistry and integration will be held on June 14 and 15, 2017, giving an in-depth introduction to digital textile printing markets and technology. The main applications for digital textile printing are reviewed, along with the key ink chemistries and integration considerations.
