This paper presents methods for quantitatively analyzing the effect of developer age and the effects that electrophotographic process system noises have on the triboelectric charge level of a developer. The replacement cycle for a developer mixture can be several hundred thousand to several million prints. During its usable life, the developer encounters a number of process noises such as toner concentration variations, environmental changes, and document toner coverage differences. Developers that have little to no change in charge level and low responses to process noise effects are desirable because they will have stable printer operation and consistent print quality. In practice, developers can have significant shifts in charge level in “early life”. These effects can be confounded with system noises. In “late life”, the developer charge may be slowly shifting which requires very long tests to estimate the developer duty cycle. Statistical and semi-empirical models can be used to separate and quantify the early and late life effects. This information can be useful for identifying material formulations that have long developer life and predicting noise conditions that show good developer performance.

  • 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.
