New Induction Heating Technology and System Optimization for Energy-Saving Fuser
Abstract:For preventing global warming, reduction of environmental impact is becoming important in imaging equipments. In MFD (Multi-Function Devices), reduction of the Typical Electricity Consumption rate (TEC rate), which represents amount of power consumptions, is required. It is important to improve energy efficiency in a fuser that consumes about 70% of whole energy in a MFD, for which electrophotographic printing process is employed.
The authors and his team developed a highly efficient fuser, for which new induction heating (IH) system is employed, by improving a conventional IH fusing technology.
For optimizing magnetic energy generation and temperature field in the fuser, simulations for magnetic field and heat transfer are carried out. As a result, the new highly efficient IH fuser is developed. In this report, its capability and performance for energy saving with high productivity of the new IH fuser are also introduced.

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.
