Differential Gloss in Electrophotography
Abstract:Differential gloss is the gloss difference between substrate and the imaged areas and between imaged areas of different toner lay-down. This study is to determine the amount of differential gloss on an EP print that's visually unacceptable. Our experience and previous studies indicate that certain amount of gloss is desired on EP prints regardless of paper types. And too much differential gloss might not be acceptable by the end users. Two experiments were conducted using several EP engines with various fusing controls to generate prints with a wide range of gloss and differential gloss. The finding is that differential gloss is not an issue as long as the finished surfaces of an image is perceived uniform.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
