Toner Charging Characteristics in the Rotation Mixing System of Toner and Carrier
Abstract:Toner charge is very important in electrophotographic printing process. Many studies on toner charging mechanism have been carried out. However, understanding of toner charging characteristics is not yet sufficient. Toner charge distribution is measured by E-SPART (Electrical Single Particle Aerodynamic Relaxation Time) which can measure and analyze the size and the charge of respective toner. The measured toner is of a crushing type. Charging is carried out as follows: the toner is mixed with carriers in a bottle and mixed by the rotation of the bottle. Average toner charge of each channel of the toner diameter is estimated. It is found that the average toner charge is proportional to the square of toner diameter and shows a saturation as the diameter increases. The experiment of adding the toner after the toner is charged to nearly stationary is carried out. It is found that toner charge distribution becomes a new value due to charge exchange between the toner and the toner/carrier.

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.
