Encoders for Inkjet System

Encoders for Inkjet System

British Encoder Products Company Stand: G122

Printing equipment generally measures and generates images with resolutions measured in dots-per-inch (DPI) or pixels-per-inch. When specifying rotary encoders for certain printing applications, the disk resolution is usually correlated to print resolution.  For example, many industrial inkjet printing systems employ a rotary encoder to track the motion of the object to be printed. This enables the print head to apply the image to a precisely controlled location on the object.

The Printing industry typically uses encoders for the following functions:

  • Registration Mark Timing - Offset presses
  • Web Tensioning - Web presses, roll-stock printing
  • Cut-to-Length - Binary systems, offset presses, web presses
  • Conveying - Inkjet printing
  • Spooling or Level Wind - Web presses
