Abstract:
This paper describes the modeling of the toner
behavior in the development nip of the Océ Direct Imaging
print process. The discrete element method (DEM) is used
as the simulation tool for a quantitative description of the
system. The interaction rules and the associated parameters
are determined for the toner particles and the surfaces of the
development rollers.The model is validated with print quality
results. It is shown that it is possible to achieve quantitative
agreement betweenDEMsimulations and experimental print
quality results.
