A Numerical Study for Fusing Process Including Moisture Phase Change in The Porous Media
Abstract:A numerical study has been conducted for accurate prediction of temperature in the toner layer including moisture phase change in porous media (paper). The moisture contents, in previous study, have been found experimentally to influence the heat transfer behavior significantly in the fusing process. Heat and mass transfer equations were incorporated into fusing processes analysis to consider the energy loss due to the evaporation of moisture in the paper. The effects of moisture content, dwell-time, fusing temperature, paper grammage, and heating energy from heater on fusing behaviors were numerically investigated by using the present numerical model.

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.
