Electro Photography (“Laser Printing”) an Efficient Technology for Biofabrication
Abstract:Electro photography – the second wide spread digital printing technology beside ink jet – is on the way to prove its capabilities as a manufacturing technology, at least for applications in biofabrication. On DF2008 we first introduced a novel and highly efficient manufacturing process for biochips (peptide arrays) based on electro photography. After the major scientific goals were achieved the step towards a series production has been made in the last two years. We now present the biochip printing facility capable for a series production.
Next, we introduce the application of electro photography as a rapid prototyping technique for the (potential) production of artificial tissues. Similar to other rapid prototyping techniques 3D-structures are build layer by layer from toner powders. Since different approaches to manufacture scaffolds for tissue engineering have been made until today the comparison of the results is interesting.

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.
