This article gives an overview on elastomeric rollers used in printing (excluding fuser and foam rollers). The focus will be on rollers used for digital printing technologies, especially electro-photography and ink-jet. Properties needed for rollers for these printing technologies will be described as well as current technologies to meet these demands. A focus here is electrical conductivity. This includes methods to achieve conductivity in elastomers and dependence of conductivity on several important parameters as for example electric field, function of time, temperature, humidity, and contact force.

Finally some required properties for rollers for non-digital printing technologies as offset and gravure will be outlined and compared with those for digital printing. Such properties are for example swelling behavior, dynamic properties, and electrical conductivity.

  • 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.
