An observation of toner scatterings behavior in the transfer process
Abstract:A toner motion between parallel plates in a transfer process is observed with a model experimental setup. The number of toner scatterings is counted by the image analysis software and it increases with the decreasing of the transfer gap. In order to analyze the toner scattering phenomena, a three-dimensional toner motion is calculated with an electrostatic simulation and Distinct Element Method. The experimental and simulated results referring to the relationship between the number of toner scatterings and the transfer gap are in good agreement. The observations of toner scattering process are carried out for various combinations of parameters in the transfer process, and the quantitative relationship between the number of toner scatterings and the parameters is obtained.

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.
