The method of evaluating development uniformity in twocomponent development system is proposed. Conventionally, it was known that the arrangement of the magnetic brush has influence on image quality. But there are few experimental approaches to quantification of these factors because of the difficulty of the direct observation at development area. Therefore, we pay our attention to the toner pattern generated on a photoconductor. In this method, a photoconductor, on which a solid pattern is developed previously, is prepared, and next, the sleeve and the photoconductor are settled with an interval of development gap. Then, voltage is applied to remove the toner from the photoconductor. As a result, a toner removed pattern can be obtained on the photoconductor. By analyzing this pattern, carrier contact ratio during the developing time is calculated, and some indexes of development uniformity are proposed. It is possible to evaluate the effects of parameters related to the arrangement of magnetic brush, and parameters related to the number of contact times. The relationship between the development uniformity and graininess is measured and it is shown that the proposed method is effective to estimate the graininess.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
