In xerographic printing, stabilization of the color reproduction function (CRC) or the tone reproduction curve (TRC) for the color separations are critical for achieving color consistency. This problem is challenging because: 1) there exist only a small number of actuators to stabilize a potentially infinite dimensional TRC; 2) only a small number of tone / color test patches can be printed and measured at a time. The first issue is addressed by a curve-fitting TRC stabilization controller based on Linear Quadratic (LQ) control with integral dynamics is proposed. It specifies particular tones or color that to be precisely controlled, while allowing other tones or colors to be close to the desired value. To address the second problem, time-sequential sampling is proposed to enable the time varying TRC or CRC to be reconstructed based on small number of samples. Experimental and simulation results verify the adequacy of the approach.

  • 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.
