Reinforced Elastomer Roller for Toner Transfer
For an application that utilizes friction drive for toner transfer, an intermediate image-holding roller has been designed to conform radially with little change in shape circumferentially. The presence of a reinforcing layer just below the surface of an elastomer-coated roller enables sufficient nip contact area for electrostatic toner transfer with minimized drive variations due to external noises. The geometry and material properties of the composite roller is optimized with finite element analysis (FEA). Data from overdrive measurements confirm a reduction in speed variation, and results from a toner transfer experiment show suitable performance for high quality color printing.

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.
