Ink Filter Characterization
Summer Intern Project 1/2
Purpose: Characterize filter loading for R&D ink development project
evaluating filter candidates to guide print head modifications for titanium
white ink.

Contribution:
 Characterized loading conditions using
standard filter testing
 Designed a 3D printable model that
mimics Falcon print head geometry
 Programmed Arduino driven test
fixture to simulate printing flow
conditions
 Integrated sensors into test fixture to
gather and analyze data during testing
for real time feedback on filter loading
 Collaborated with Barcelona office to
qualify the test fixture before end of
internship

Filtration Rate (g/min)

Objectives:
 Understand filtering loading behaviors
for new R&D ink
 Characterize ink flow using standard
filter loading model
 Develop new filter loading test for use
in future ink developments
