2,540 dpi Full Color Image Creation with a Liquid Electrophotography System
Abstract:Extremely high-resolution images have been obtained by an electrophotographic imaging system using liquid toner. This system includes a high-resolution Laser Scanning Unit (LSU) with a 2,540 dpi resolution, and an image transfer system that does not use electrical energy. We examined the characteristics of high-resolution image creation, in particular the relationship with laser beam focusing and laser power to obtain the optimized parameter value of the LSU. The image pattern from this system was confirmed to be accurate according to the resolution. Furthermore, an examination of the noiseless transferability of “shearing transfer” showed the accuracy of the created image was due not only to the development process, but also to the transfer process. We attempted to print a full-color image with this system, and obtained a real 2,540 dpi color image, which is equal in quality to that produced by offset printing.

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.
