Electrophotography has proven itself to be a capable technology in the field of High Quality On Demand Colour Printing with offset quality as a reference. Further progress is being made in the design of dual component toner/developers in terms of flexibility in design and performance. The new FlexDesign concept is based on a tuned carriercoating/toner design and enables the creation of a new family of toners/developers aimed at applications where apart from process performance and image quality, new functionalities are implemented in the consumables. Apart from the design, new areas within the scope of dry toner based digital printing will be discussed related to the DCP/Chromapress systems. New possible applications are : security, textile, ceramics/enamels, base-layers, top-coats, Corresponding tonermaterials having markedly different functionalities are proven to be similar in electrophotographic performance.

Dry toner technology has an intrinsic strength related in the flexibility of incorporating and stabilizing the new functional components. Since FlexDesign enables to reduce largely the disturbing effects of incorporating functional materials in the tonerparticles, it enhances this strength of dry toner concept, when compared to other digital printing consumables such as liquid toners and Ink-Jet inks. New design methods in dry toner technology, especially dual component based, will hence promote dry toners as a highly valued technology for future digital printing applications.

  • 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.
