Development of a thermal print head by 3D thermal analysis The photo printer of a dye-sublimation thermal printer is widely used for a consumer use and a business use as an output device of the digital camera image. On the other hand, a thermal printer is a simple structure, and it is small suitable. Therefore, it is widely used for a direct, thermal printer and a mobile printer of the built-in type. The power saving of a thermal head have to achieve for the battery longevity in a mobile printer and the speed-up of the dye sublimation photo printer.

The performance demanded from a thermal head differs respectively, and applies the technique of 3D analysis to the development of a thermal head for various pencil press of these thermal printers. In this paper, it reports on the result of review that 3D thermal analysis to the optimization of the design parameter of a power saving thermal head. And, it reports on the color printer that uses the developed power saving thermal head.

  • 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.
