Printer manufacturers are required to meet a number of environmental standards for materials utilized in their products and the emissions of those products in a work place environment. Legislative compliance, such as ROHS and California Proposition 65, establish the maximum allowable amount of controlled substance, or maximum exposure of a released substance within a work place air space. These demands have filtered down to the vendors of components used in the printer. This requires that component manufactures verify that their products do not contain, nor emit into the working environment, substances exceeding compliance regulations. In order to meet these requirements, testing at the temperatures that the component sees, in an operating printer, needs to be completed and the results compiled to determine environmental compliance. Environmental compliance testing protocols and testing equipment used for identifying and quantifying emissions, dynamic “headspace testing”, of fuser and pressure rollers at operating temperatures are discussed. Particular attention is given to benzene, toluene ethylbenzene, xylene (BTEX compounds), acetaldehyde and formaldehyde.

  • 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.
