Characteristics of DC Charging Roller System
Abstract:It is known that the mechanism of the charging roller system is the discharge generation in an air gap close to the nip region of the charging roller and the photoconductor. It is important to maintain the stability of discharge for the image quality. Generally, a charging roller has an elastic layer on the surface. The resistance of this elastic layer tends to change with environmental conditions or material property variations.
We focus on the fundamental composition that is DC bias charging roller system; the relationship between the resistance of the charging roller and the charged potential of the photoconductor are studied. Consequently, it turns out that the change of electrification potential and generation of uneven electrification are closely related to the resistance of a charging roller. Furthermore, it turns out that uneven electrification is generated due to condition changes which electric discharge is generated at an outlet region of the nip. We found that the above phenomena can be explained by using the relationship between passing time of the air gap close to nip area and the time constant of the roller resistance. From these results, the knowledge for stabilizing image quality is obtained.

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.
