The shape of toner particles has a significant influence on the imaging performance in the electro-photographic process. In this study, we developed a program that calculates the toner behavior as we considered every particle shape. The program uses a distinct element method using polyhedral particles. We developed algorithms that classify the contact of the particle into four patterns depending upon the tangency of the vertex, the edge and the face of polyhedron. Utilizing the developed program, we calculated how the toner scatters by creeping discharge. Furthermore, we investigated the reason why a sphere toner scatters more intensely than non-sphere toner. As a result, we found that the difference between toner's shapes and adhesive properties in terms of their motion flexibility determines the scattering performance.

  • 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.
