Inkjet

A liquid deposition process that propels (jets) very small droplets of material from a print head onto a surface. Many small jets are arranged on the printhead to deposit larger amounts of material at the same time and can be turned on and off to create a pattern. When multiple heads with different materials in each are used together, colors can be created, or materials can be mixed. In additive manufacturing, inkjet methods are used across processes to deposit material that can be the build material, support material, binder, or some other chemical used in the manufacturing process.
