Modification and further development of a drop on demand printhead for wax enabling future 3D-printing and rapid prototyping

Abstract

Dosing liquids in small quantities is present in a lot of different applications as inkjet printing, heating devices, and 3D-printing methods. This paper deals with a drop on demand (DOD) printhead based on a piezo-element bender actuator which can generate drops out of wax. The aim is to provide a testing system where changes of significant design… (More)
