A simulation method to predict a fuser performance is presented. It is based on the 2D thermal analysis using Comsol software. The analysis model consists of a 2 roll-type IH fuser and paper with toner on it. A sequence of warm-up, print, ready, and warm-up again is simulated. The warm-up time to print, print power, ready temperature, ready power, and FCOT (first copy out time) are estimated. Based on the analysis results the TEC (typical electricity consumption) is estimated for the fuser. The estimated fuser performance is compared to the measured data from the fuser jig test.

  • 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.
