Printer Ink Cartridge Evaluation
Ensure ink cartridges are properly sealed by measuring pressure distribution.
Pressure Distribution of Printer Ink Cartridge Seal
ChallengeEnsuring a proper seal between an ink cartridge cap and cartridge body is vital for proper performance of a printer. A weak seal can cause leaks, clogging of pen nozzles and overall poor printing performance, resulting in high warranty replacement costs and customer dissatisfaction.
SolutionThe I-Scan™ pressure mapping system offers instantaneous insight into the pressures being exerted upon the cartridge cap. If uneven pressures exist, I-Scan will illustrate them in vivid 2D and 3D images. With the I-Scan’s real-time display, changes in pressure are easily identified and cartridge adjustments can be made. The patented, thin (0.1mm) sensors easily fit into this application, minimizing environmental disturbance. With the help of Tekscan’s highly qualified sales and engineering support team, each system may be configured to meet your specific needs. Learn more about I-Scan pressure mapping system.
