Printing Systems

The block diagram below indicates the functional blocks for one configuration of an ink-jet based printing system. A jetlab® 4 or jetlab® II Printing System would be configured to have most or all of these functions shown in the block diagram. Equipment and software that are sold as subsystems and components are shown in bold type.

Subsystems & Components

For customers interested in developing their own system using MicroFab components and subsystems, the functional elements are shown below in one possible configuration of a Micro-dispensing subsystem. This example illustrates a single channel, low temperature (unheated), stirred printhead.

A Basic Ink-Jet Setup contains more information about the required components or use Basic Ink-Jet Setup for the PDF version of the entire information.
