DJM implements photonic technology in new generation printers
The starting point within DJM has always been to offer its customers and partners the best possible technical inkjet printing solution.
As a result, DJM develops the inkjet print technology in-house as much as possible. An extensive R&D department has been set up for this purpose, which, in addition to the development of electronics, is also involved in the development of software and hardware.
The most recent development is the application of photonic technology in the new generation of inkjet printers. This technology makes it possible to transmit huge amounts of data enabling complex processes to be carried out quickly, with the aim of keeping the systems operating with the highest achievable precision.
Subsidy from OP-Oost and European Union
After a successful pitch DJM has received funding from the European Union for the realization of this project. For non-contact printing technique the substrate transport is very important to realize high-quality prints. The main objective of the project is 3-dimensional registration of substrate movements and simultaneous adjustments of the print module at nozzle level. In this way a situation is created in which the perfect inkjet drop is formed under all circumstances and is placed in the right place on the substrate.
To realize this, a new measurement method is developed to follow the substrate accurately. Sensors will also be developed that can carry out these measurements - in x, y and z dimension.
DJM works closely together with TNO for this project.
