First Low Energy Consumption Fuser (following ODF) was marketed by Canon in 1990. In this fuser, we used polyimide film and ceramic heater so that its low thermal capacity enables ondemand printing and energy saving. Most printers produced by Canon are using this technology. Since the market launch, this fuser has been evolved to various types, getting faster and applied to not only monochrome but also to color printers.

Especially many design changes have been made to film. We have been using stainless steel for film base to achieve higher speed and added rubber layer for color printing.

It has been difficult to precisely calculate the effect of these improvements. In this paper, we examine these improvements with simulation.
