A Large MEMS Scanning Mirror for Laser Printing Application
Abstract:A state-of-the-art electrostatic scanning mirror for laser beam printing application has been developed. The large optical scanning angle of the mirror is critical for reducing the linear scanning speed variation. The geometry of the mirror increases the printing resolution and decreases the mirror dynamic deformation. Its maximum optical scanning angle range is above 96 degrees. The diameter of the mirror is as large as 4.2mm and the scanning speed is 3,000 Hz which is equivalent to a hexagonal polygon mirror rotating at 60,000 RPM. The device, coupled with a low speed scanner, is able to print on both flat and curved surfaces. It enables fast printing speed, lowers power consumption and reduces printer size for traditional print media such as paper, labels and cans as well as other applications such as raster scan display for dynamic bill board advertising with an array of such mirrors.

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.
