A Numerical Study of Induction Heating Fusers
We are developing a new fuser with a highly efficient induction heater in order to reduce the power consumption of electro-photographic system. However, there is no effective method for designing an induction heating fuser, and it is necessary to repeat many experiments in order to determine the optimum conditions.
To reduce the number of experiments needed, we used the Finite Element Method (FEM) to perform heating simulations, and then compared the simulation results with the actual measured data to verify the simulation results.
The results of this comparison show that the induction heating conditions and temperature distribution of the heating roller can be precisely estimated by the heating simulation, making the heating simulation an effective method for use in the design of the induction heating fuser.

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.
