Dynamics of Carrier Particles in Two-Component Magnetic Development System of Electrophotography
Abstract:We have studied dynamics of magnetic brushes in two-component development system of electrophotography by a numerical simulation with an improved Distinct Element Method (DEM) and experimental observation with a high-speed microscope camera. Two-dimensional magnetic field was calculated by superposing measured discrete magnetic flux densities on a development sleeve. It has been calculated and observed that magnetic brushes grow up in the development area inclining in parallel in the direction of the magnetic field and they are crushed by a photoreceptor drum. It has been evaluated that although the total pressure applied to the photoreceptor is almost irrelevant to the diameter of carrier particles, differential force applied by individual chain is dense and small with small particles but rough and large with large particles. This suggests that small carrier particles are preferable to prevent disturbance of developed toner particles on the photoreceptor.

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.
