Analysis of the Surface Properties of a Development Roller for Mono-Component Toner Charging by Using a Current Measurement Technique
Abstract:In the mono-component non-magnetic toner system, optimum toner charging and mass transfer are important factors to produce fine images with high quality. In previous work, we confirmed that a current flows through each system part (i.e. development roller, blade, and supply roller) during the roller rotation with toner attached on its surface. In this paper, we discuss the possible mechanism of generation of these currents in the development system. Development rollers having various surface properties were prepared for this study. It was found that the surface characteristics of the development roller considerably affected the value of the current. In particular the rate of charge decay of the roller surface strongly affected the current and also the toner charging. From these results, we propose a possible mechanism for this current generation.

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.
