Advanced control methods potentially enable performance improvements in printing systems for minor additional costs. The aim of this paper is to develop a control framework that is capable of delivering throughput and accuracy enhancements for an industrial flatbed inkjet printer. The proposed method involves iterative learning control with a rational feedforward parameterization to enable varying position references that are required for printing. Experimental results highlight the efficacy of the proposed method in a comparison with related pre-existing learning control approaches.
