Océ's Mono Component, Magnetic, Conductive Colour Toner
Abstract:Océ's Direct Imaging (DI) technology is a unique 7 colour dry-toner based printing process. The printing process is controlled by a subtle interplay between a magnetic force and an electrical force exerted on the inductively charged toner particles. Océ's DI technology therefore requires magnetizable and conductive colour toners.
A major challenge was to develop colour toners that yield a sufficiently large colour gamut. Carbonyl iron has been chosen as a magnetic pigment. For a conductive coating on the toner particles fluorine doped tinoxide (FTO) is used.
The FTO coating on the toner particles is completely transparent and colourless. The carbonyl iron pigment in the toner however still absorbs a significant fraction of the incident light. By using fluorescent mixtures of dyes, in addition to colour pigments, we have succeeded in attaining vivid colours and a large colour gamut.

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.
