A finite-difference model simulates temperature distributions in two blocks of materials with one block moving with respect to the other block and with a sliding contact region between these blocks. Two different methods of imposing motion with SINDA finite-differenceequation solvers are investigated: SEVER sequentially connects and disconnects different thermal conductors between the two blocks to constitute the sliding contact; SHUTTLE simply marches the temperature profile through the nodes in the moving block at the rate corresponding to the relative speed of the blocks. The SHUTTLE method with integer steps offers the advantage of observing the hottest region in the vicinity of the imaging resistors and the peak temperature at the donor-receiver interface for an arbitrarily long time. Predicted temperatures are confirmed by a 180°C peak temperature experimentally observed at the interface of a 6-μm-thick donor with a paper-backed receiver using the thermal coefficient of electrical resistance (TCR) for a 100-μm-wide silver line deposited on that receiver.

  • 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.
