Contact Development Using Highly Concentrated Liquid Toner
Abstract:A liquid development system using a highly concentrated liquid toner has been developed. In this system, the liquid toner is applied as a thin film on the surface of the developing roller, and the roller is brought into contact with an electrostatic medium on which an electrostatic image is developed. The system doesn't require any subtle adjustments of the distance between the developing roller and the medium. Although the system uses highly concentrated liquid toner and contact development, which are usually difficult to handle and can easily cause serious fogging, a clear image can be obtained if certain parameters are optimized. These parameters are the specific peripheral velocity of the developing roller, the electric field between the developing roller and the medium, and the pressure on the contact surface. As a result of this optimization, continuous tone imaging is provided by this system.

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.
