A High-Endurance Organic Photoreceptor Having a Filler-Reinforced Layer
Abstract:The tandem color engines have entered the mainstream of electrophotographic color technologies. High durability and high stabilization in repeated electrophotographic cycles are the important properties for the organic photoreceptor to meet this trend. Therefore we have developed an organic photoreceptor having a protective layer, coated on the surface of a conventional organic photoreceptor. Assuming that the protective layer should possess both the abrasion resistance and the sufficient charge transport ability, a protective layer containing fine rigid particles was developed to achieve those requirements. Furthermore, we have developed the coating technology suitable for making the protective layer on the organic photoreceptor surface. This newly developed organic photoreceptor was used in Ricoh Aficio AP3800C launched into market in September 2001 and has been applied to other color engines of Ricoh since then. Here we introduce an outline of the technologies adopted in the new organic photoreceptor with the high durability and stability.

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.
