Terrence F E Taylor, Vishwa N Bansal, Peter T C Raby: Ink-drop print-head. International Standard Electric Corporation, A Donald Stolzy, January 15, 1980: US04184169 (27 worldwide citation)

A drop-on-demand ink-drop printer (as opposed to a continuous-droplet-stream printer) has a printhead through which ink flows continuously. In the vicinity of the orifice through which drops are expelled there is a constriction, for instance a Venturi tube, which (a) maintains a negative meniscus at ...
