Liquid Toner Transfix Print Process
Abstract:An intermediate belt architecture and a transfix process are in use for liquid toner electrophotography systems. Here we describe the impact of transfix temperature and carrier content in the toned image layer on transfer efficiency and fix level. Temperature has to be high enough to melt the toner. Increasing carrier concentration lowers the toner melting point and increases image fix to paper. But high carrier concentration decreases the cohesive strength of the toner layer and causes incomplete transfer and toner penetration into uncoated paper.

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.
