Ink jet needles


Fluid flow is crucial to many industrial processes and understanding fluid mechanics is vital in making these processes as efficient as possible – thereby reducing material and energy use, increasing yield and improving product quality.

Our research areas cover droplets and sprays, thin liquid films and polymeric flows, with applications in the following areas; 

  • Ink jet optimisation
  • Mixing technology and specification
  • Roll & gravure coating
  • Gravure & screen printing
  • Drying of substrates
  • Characterisation and specification of materials
