Pulse Control Characteristics of Jumping Conductive Toner by a pair of Aperture Electrode
Abstract:Toner cloud beam (TCB) is a novel toner-based printing method that employs conductive toner. Toner dots are formed directly on paper in the TCB method. The toner beam is controlled by applying a pulsed voltage to a pair of aperture electrodes. The pulse control characteristics of the toner beam are important in the TCB method. The dot formation dependence on the electrode voltages is investigated experimentally and the relationship between the dot size and the pulse duration is obtained. An enlarged model with an aperture diameter of 0.5 mm is used to confirm that dots are formed in less than 10−4 s. The toner speed at a toner cloud generation voltage of 550 V is estimated to be 4.1 m/s.

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.
