Energy-saving technology for fusing systems using EDLC power assistance
Abstract:A new fusing technology using EDLC (Electric Double Layer Capacitor) power assistance has been developed which greatly reduces the warm-up time and energy consumption. The charged power of EDLC is used for heating energy of fusing unit. The power assistance can be used for the temperature drop during the early stage of the continuous paper feeding. Furthermore, it is applicable to the acceleration of temperature rise of the fuser roller for start-up or recovery stage.
The technology is adopted in high-speed MFP from Ricoh.

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.
