Predicting Dynamic Characteristics of the Gear Train in Laser Printers for Mechanical Halftone Banding Analysis
Abstract:The angular velocity fluctuation of the Organic Photo Conductive (OPC) drums causes the halftone banding that is a main source of the print quality degradation represented as the irregularity of the line spacing. In addition, the mechanical connections between various components in a gear train involve the fluctuation as a source of the vibration. This paper suggests modeling methods to simulate dynamic characteristics to predict the fluctuation of gears and other components affecting the banding. The model-automation tool building easily and quickly a simulation model is developed by using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software. The usefulness of these methods is validated by the comparison with experimental results.

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.
