A new paper separation and feed mechanism is proposed to realize a highly reliable paper handling system for printers. A prototype mechanism consisted of a roller-type separation electrode coated with an insulating film, a ground electrode, and a paper pile between the electrodes. When electrostatic field was applied between the electrodes, it was confirmed that only the top paper was separated. However the applied voltage had to be increased to separate subsequent papers, because charge on the insulating film was cancelled by the attached paper. Then a biased charger roller was settled in contact with the separation electrode to charge the insulating film on the separation electrode. In this system, reliable paper separation and feed was realized and a feed speed over 600 mm/s was demonstrated.

  • 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.
