Dr. Larisa von Riewel, head of the Computer Aided Engineering Group at Heraeus Noblelight, will talk about Infrared hybrid systems for simultaneous multi-type drying.
As latest technology in printing industry evolves to continuous forms aqueous ink digital printers, many different drying methods and mechanisms are currently implemented within various printers. However, the interaction between these drying methods and their relative effectiveness for individual ink formulations is still challenging. The presentation will focus on a novel system design for infrared dryers, which includes three heat transfer mechanisms, considered individual or coupled, conduction, convection and radiation. Theoretical aspects of the drying processes from the perspective of flow and thermal management in the framework of new product development will be discussed. Topics such as wavelength selectivity according to spectral analysis of different types of water-based inks and depth penetration of the ink film boundary layer will be addressed.
