When paper passes through a transfer station the paper is electrically charged. The charged paper sometimes sticks to an ITB or a transfer roller and causes a paper jam. A simulation model was constructed to examine the amount of charge on the paper. The modeled paper consisted of one base layer and two surface layers and the thickness and electrical properties of each layer were determined experimentally. This modeled paper was applied to a simplified transfer system and the current through the paper was calculated. The calculated results agreed well with the experimental values. In addition, it was revealed that the electrical properties of paper in a strong electrical field are determined by the discharge between paper fibers a microscopic distance apart.

  • 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.
