Abstract

In printing systems, the positioning accuracy of the medium with respect to the print heads directly impacts print quality. In a regular document inkjet printer, the main task of the media positioning drive is to shift the medium after the printhead has finished a pass. Most media have the tendency to deform while it is being printed due to variations in temperature and moisture content. In order to improve print quality, we propose to move the medium during printing to counteract the deformation. These small scale trajectories are performed in an operating regime of which the dynamics considerably differ from the regular transportation step. Using iterative learning control with basis functions for both positioning tasks, the positioning accuracy of the drive is improved substantially; while keeping numerical cost low.
