Friction-driven roller systems are prevalent in non-impact printing, from initial paper-feed to image fixing. As an aid in design, a non-linear finite element model has been developed to predict surface strains and overdrive of elastomer-coated rollers in friction-driven systems. Data from experiments designed to measure overdrive are in good agreement with model predictions, showing overdrive to be an increasing function of nip engagement influenced by elastomer thickness.

  • 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.
