Ambient OPC conditioning effect outside and heat-induced interaction between the OPC and fuser belt inside the Océ VP6000 printer
Abstract:The Océ Gemini Instant Duplex technology forms the heart of the Océ VarioPrint 6160/6200/6250 printer line. Since duplex productivity is key, the main technological issues that have been solved during development were architectural and robustness related. Robustness, in our philosophy, not only means large lifetimes of parts and consumables, but also a robust, constant and consistent performance and print quality of both print processes for various media and environments. To realize the necessary print quality robustness, we have made various innovations in the OPC, LED-printhead, transfer efficiency, transfuse robustness and process control.
In this contribution we will first describe the essentials of the printing process of the Océ VarioPrint 6160/6200/6250 printer line. After that, we elaborate a little further on the influence of ambient humidity conditions on the OPC-belt and its production process. Finally, the transfer-transfuse process and the heat interaction with the OPC-belt is discussed. These items represent two related print quality problems that had to be solved in order to realize a productive duplex print engine on an integral level.

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.
