Characterization of Microstructures Found on the Surface of and Within Toner Particles -Particle Analyzer Dispersion Evaluation-
Abstract:We have developed a particle analyzer system, the model PT1000, which analyzes particulates using helium microwave-induced plasma. The PT1000 can simultaneously measure the three-dimensional components, composition and size of individual particles without requiring any preparatory treatment. Applied to the evaluation of toner particles, the PT1000 enables changes in toner properties, that could not be identified with any other techniques, to be measured with high sensitivity. This paper discusses the correlation between variations in toner particle properties and analysis results using the PT1000, and presents the results of example measurements using new methods of analyzing property changes during the photodeveloping process and so on.

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.
