Control Characteristic of Conductive Toner Cloud by an Aperture Electrode
Abstract:The printing technology that uses the toner, such as the electrophotography, is necessary for our life. However, the efforts for realizing a simpler mechanism are important because the electrophotography printing mechanism is complex. The mechanism has 6 processes. To decrease the processes is considered one of good approaches for realizing improvement. To control toner cloud by a pair of electrode has been proposed. As a fundamental data, the control characteristics of single aperture electrode are important. The single aperture has also a possibility of application. In this study, the toner cloud is generated between the aperture electrode and dented electrode by voltage application and the dependence of toner amount passing through the aperture on outer electric field is obtained. It is found that as the thickness of the aperture electrode increases, the range of the electric field of the state in which toner can not pass through becomes wide.

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.
