We have been developing an electrostatic inkjet system for printers and mask-less electronic micro-circuit printing. The system consisted of a tube filled with ink and a plate electrode. When voltage was applied between the electrodes, a droplet was formed and separated at the tip of the tube periodically. Optimizing this system we have demonstrated 1,600 dpi printing on paper. However the print speed was deadly slow because this system had only single nozzle. Therefore we have been developing a multi-nozzle system that consisted of two parallel tubes filled with ink and the metal plate electrode. Three-dimensional calculation of the electric field was conducted by the Finite Difference Method to deduce the cross-talk between the electrodes and it is proposed that a new system that the waveform of the applied voltage was adjusted to cancel the cross-talk between the adjacent nozzle.
