Abstract

In continuous stream type ink jet printing devices, fluctuations of ink droplet velocity, either drifting in time or from jet to jet, cause ink droplet misplacement on the recording medium, resulting in print defects and poor copy quality. Through the mutual compensation of the deflection and timing, the droDlet placement errors may be reduced to improve performance of the ink jet printing devices when a substantially binary method of droplet deflection is used.
