A Method for Increasing Fusing Latitude of Liquid Toner
Abstract:A method is described which increases the fusing latitude of liquid toner in an electrophotographic printer. A two stage fusing system with different coverings on the first and second stage fusing rollers has been found to produce fused toner images with good durability without low or high temperature fuser offset. The first stage nip temperature is just high enough to vaporize most of the liquid toner carrier fluid. The first stage roller covering is selected to resist low temperature fuser offset. The temperature of the second stage fuser nip is sufficient to adequately fuse the toner to the receiving media and is generally higher than the temperature of the first stage nip. The covering on the second stage fusing roller is selected to resist high temperature fuser offset. The coverings on both the first and second stage rollers must have good release properties.

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.
