The Tonejet Electrostatic Jetting process uses the principle of electrostatically ejecting charged pigment ink particles from a linear array of ejector tips. Ink flows continuously around the ejectors, this continuous flow of ink allows the print head to be constantly in a print-ready state. The ink consists of charged pigment particles in a non-conducting carrier liquid. To jet ink from the ejectors, a voltage is applied individually to the ejectors in correlation with the print data, resulting in the charged pigment particles being accelerated away from the ejectors towards the substrate.
