Abstract

In a continuous stream-type ink jet printing process, the solvent in the ink evaporates while the ink droplets that are not to be printed travel from the generator to the gutter for collection and recirculation to the ink supply. Therefore, some means of reconstitution is required to maintain the ink properties at operating levels.
