New numerical method to compute toner melting behavior in the fuser nip was developed by combining the recently proposed CCUP method known as a general solver for gas, liquid and solid and the Leonov model as a rheological model. In present method, deformation of the piled up powder toners by heat and load were computed using the fitted dynamic property of the viscoelastic parameters: G', G” and the WLF equation. In this study, effects of the fusing temperature, the nip load and the process speed on melting behavior were investigated. Consequently, the computed toner pile height and the surface roughness show good correspondence with experimental ones, and the validity of the present method was demonstrated.

  • 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.
