Challenges in Fuser System Materials Design
The presentation is in two parts. In the first part, the aforementioned work process will be described, beginning with the identification of new subsystem requirements. The major emphasis will be on performance optimization requirements.
The second part will show specific examples of fuser materials design, especially fluoroelastomers and release fluids. We will describe a comparative study of standard curing methodologies against novel functional silane cure systems, functional hydrocarbons and hybrids thereof. We will also review test data demonstrating improved composition performance with the utilization of these novel curing systems. The challenge of understanding the role of release vs. lubrication for image release will also be discussed. The presentation will close with material design challenges to optimize system interactions in the fuser nip impacting fuser component life and image quality.

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.
