Abstract:

The low-end color laser printer market has expanded rapidly in recent years. The design of small light-weight, high image quality, and low-cost color laser printers has been an issue. Authors have described a patented, magnet-less, removable toner cartridge in this article. This add-on low-cost cartridge can be designed such that it can be easily removed and replaced by a casual non-trained operator. Also, the replacement of the carrier in a dual-component development system can be easily accomplished in this way. These magnet-less cartridges can also be cost-effectively used in a single-component or a dual-component xerographic black & white printing, copying or faxing equipment. The architecture of color xerographic systems will be greatly simplified resulting in cost-savings and efficiency.

At this stage, we have demonstrated the feasibility of the magnetic brush and the magnet-less cartridge concepts. Our commercialization strategy calls for licensing the patents and additional knowledge of the office equipment manufacturers.

  • 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.
