Color Laser Printer Using Four All-in-One Cartridges
Abstract:A small color laser printer using four all-in-one cartridges has been developed. Four sector-shaped cartridges, each of which contains an OPC drum, a developing unit, a charger and a cleaner, are assembled into a rotary carousel. The carousel rotationally changes each color cartridge to produce primary color images which are superimposed onto an intermediate transfer belt to make a full-color image that is transferred to a paper all at once. This world-first color all-in-one cartridge eliminates hand-dirtying problems during toner and OPC replacement. Furthermore, fewer supply items and a 10,000-page long cartridge ensure less user intervention for the replacing of consumables. Its all-front-access structure which is similar to conventional monochrome lasers affords good user friendliness.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
