Title: DROPLET PROPERTY CONTROL IN AN INKJET PRINT HEAD
Abstract:
In a method for controlling a property of a liquid droplet generated in an inkjet print head, the method includes determining a target viscosity range;determining a liquid viscosity of a liquid arranged in the inkjet print head;maintaining a temperature of the liquid arranged in the inkjet print head constant, if the liquid viscosity is within the target viscosity range;adjusting a temperature of the liquid arranged in the inkjet print head to adjust the liquid viscosity in order to bring the liquid viscosity within the target viscosity range, if the liquid viscosity in step b is not within the target viscosity range.
