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 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.
