Abstract

Existing ink jet drying techniques suffer from a problem of high power consumption due to substantial conversion losses in heating the ink and paper to dry the ink. In addition, existing techniques are generally insensitive to the actual area coverage of the ink on the paper and therefore, consume nearly constant amounts of power regardless of the area coverage of the image. The present proposal addresses these problems using the concept of an electromagnetic dryer.
