Xerographic Printing System Performance Optimization by Toner Throughput Control
Abstract:For two component xerographic development systems the toner concentration and the average toner residence time in the developer sump are desired to be within optimal ranges for acceptable image quality. The toner concentration and the average toner residence time are coupled such that independent ranges are not typically achievable and so a tradeoff must be managed. Also the required toner for any given job is highly variable and not known well in advance, yet significantly impacts the two aforementioned parameters. In this paper we propose and demonstrate a model predictive control design framework to optimally manage toner throughput to achieve performance objectives.

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.
