Powder Coating and Printing on Metal with Electrophotographic Technology
Abstract:Electrophotographic technology can be used for powder coating and printing on a variety of substrates, including metal. Advantages include: better uniformity and thinner coatings than conventional powder coating; the ability to prime, print colors, topcoat, and cure in a single pass through a curing system; the ability to use higher coating speeds than are generally used with liquids; reduced emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs); as well as reduced drying, curing, maintenance, and capital costs. This technology also enables production of nanocoatings and composite coatings with enhanced properties, such as improved chip and scratch resistance, chemical resistance, and heat resistance.

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.
