Media Advances in Dye Diffusion Thermal Transfer to Facilitate a Multihead Printer System
Abstract:This paper describes the design of media for a new multihead printer system for dye diffusion thermal transfer. The media features include a dye donor that was redesigned with a new support thickness for increased efficiency and a new component load specifically designed for this system to deliver printing in the multihead configuration. In addition, a roll fed receiver was configured to give prints without paper curl in the final print. Curve shape and incubation results are discussed.

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.
