The Impact of Digital Xerography on Marking Materials
Abstract:For the past forty years, light-lens copiers have been the dominant form of xerographic imaging. However, recent rapid progress in digital software and hardware has now enabled xerographic imaging to evolve to a digitally-based printing technology for both full-color and black-and-white applications. As a result, many of the limitations imposed by light-lens imaging have now been removed via digital software applications in areas such as image processing and process control. From a marking materials viewpoint, however, many of the opportunities and challenges posed by digital imaging are yet to be addressed, since current xerographic toners and carriers are still largely based on design concepts that were developed for the mature technology of light-lens imaging.

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.
