A Numerical Study of Induction Heating Fusers
Abstract:The reduction of a power consumption by electro-photographic copiers and printers has become an important topic in recent years.
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 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.
