Second Transfer Process Simulation I
Abstract:We have developed a numerical simulation method and used it to understand the control mechanism for separation discharges and toner scattering in the second transfer process. The second transfer process involves various materials, including paper, rollers, toner, intermediate transfer belt (ITB) and saw-like static charge eliminator. The simulation method takes into consideration electrical materials, geometric configuration and physical interaction among many factors: electric field, charge conduction, electric discharges, toner behavior, and ion flow field. The developed method was used to calculate the current characteristics, electric discharges, and toner scattering. Results showed good agreement with the experiments, and further calculation results showed that removal of electricity by static charge eliminator reduces toner scattering and separation discharges.

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.
