Superior Technology to Make the Advanced Full Color Toner for Fine Image Quality
The mechanochemical method in a dry process of toner is introduced as the production of toner. This method is that the preground chips mixed with silica are ground using the pulverizer like a jet mill and is especially suitable to produce the color toners including high content of the wax. The size reduction of thus toners is especially hard in a dry process, but the specific energy consumption as grinding efficiency has been decreased up to half when using the mechanochemical method.
The grindability of the polyester resin as toner binder, which is main components of toner and controls the productivity of the toner, is also discussed. The specific energy consumption was decreased up to further half when using both high grindable resin and mechanochemical method.
It is proposed in this paper that both mechanochemical method and high grindable resin should be simultaneously applied as the process of size reduction of toner for fine image quality.

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.
