New Technologies for Image Stability and Reliability Used in the RICOH Production Printer
Abstract:RICOH Pro C900 is the first full-color printer for the production printing market for RICOH. In this market, it is very important to secure stable image quality and high reliability. This product newly introduced two technologies to achieve these key factors. The former is the new control algorithm to stabilize the image quality. A Charging bias, an exposure power and a development bias are controlled according to this algorithm. This brought the superior image stability in any image patterns. The latter is the design of the high durability and long lifetime. After several improvements and optimizations the lifetime of the developer was lengthened 6 times, the OPC was lengthened 3 ∼ 4 times and the photoconductor drum cleaning unit was lengthened 2 times compared with the conventional one.

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.
