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 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.
