Paper Abstract

Significant advances in system reliability and droplet control, resulting in improved image quality, have opened up new opportunities for continuous-flow ink jet technology -a relatively mature non-impact printing technique. These opportunities exist within the graphic arts industry--an industry experiencing an upheaval in its fundamental methods of operation because of the increasing use of powerful, highly sophisticated computer systems for both the design and creation of images and the electronic manipulation of images and text in preparation for high volume printing. High resolution computer systems are increasingly supplanting much of the manual, crafts-oriented nature of the business. Skilled graphic design and production personnel are exchanging keyboards, function menus and electronic pucks for drawing tables, T-squares, and X-acto knives.
