Polyester-based chemical toner with a low fusing temperature is demonstrated. The toner composition is based on spherical toner particles produced using the proprietary Chemical Milling process of DPI Solutions with a diameter centered about 6 μm. It exhibits the fusing latitude in the range of 100-150 °C, of which the low fusing temperature is significantly lower than commercial ‘low temperature’ toner used in a printer with a ribbon fuser architecture. The low fusing temperature with excellent blocking resistance is achieved through a new amorphous resin with a linear polyester chemical architecture in which the alkyl group length of alkylene diol monomers was optimized for the glass transition temperature about 60°C. We present the molecular design principle and the thermo-physical performance of the resin as well as toner processing characteristics of the resin in this paper.

  • 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.
