3.1

Characteristic of Toner

The toner used for KIP6000 Printer has a characteristic to be charged negative (like a negative object), which tends to be attracted to a relatively positive object. Suppose that there are objects A and B, and the situation is as follows. 1. Electric potential of the object B is higher than that of object A. 2. Toner exists on the object A. Comparing the potential of both objects, it can be said that the object B is relatively positive and the object A is negative. (In another word, object B is more positive than the object A.) As the toner is negative, it is attracted to the object B which is more positive. If you move the object B close to the object A, therefore, the toner moves onto the object B.

Object A with low potential (Relatively negative)

A
Toner moves from A to B.

Object B with high potential (Relatively positive)

On the contrary, suppose that the toner exists on the object B of which electric potential is higher than the object A. Even if you move the object A close to the object B, the toner continues to stay on the object B because negative toner and relatively negative object A repel each other.

Object A with low potential (Relatively negative)

Toner stays on B.

Object B with high potential (Relatively positive)

Thus, the toner has a characteristic to move from one place with a lower potential to another place with a higher potential. If we properly control the electric potentials, therefore, it is possible to move the toner from one place to another as we intend, or it is also possible to remove the toner from unwanted place. KIP6000 Printer controls the electric potentials properly working each part as Drum, Corona Units, Lamps, Developer Unit and Cleaning Roller. The movement of toner is controlled correctly and several processes as Development, Toner Transfer, Drum Cleaning and etc. are performed.

Reference
When the printer is going to stop after printing, or when the used Roll Deck is changed with other one, the KIP6000 Printer will make Toner Collection Process to take back the remained toner into the Developer Unit until it starts next print job. Refer to [3.4 Toner Collection Process] on the page 3-18 for the detail. 3-3 K96sm3e1.doc (Ver. A.0)

3.2.1

Erasing (Removal of negative electric charges)

As the first step of print cycle, it is necessary to remove the negative electric charges from the Drum, which have remained there after the former print cycle. The Drum has a characteristic to lose the negative electric charges if it is exposed to the light. So the Drum is rotated and evenly exposed to the light from the Eraser Lamp. The electric potential on the Drum becomes 0V by this process.

Charge of Drum

The Image Corona discharges negative electric charges which are given to the Drum. The surface of Drum is charged with about -700V evenly as a result, which corresponds to the white area of the printed image pattern. Current and Voltage supplied to the Image Corona Wire and the Grid Plate are as follows. Corona Wire Grid Plate -1.3mA +/-0.05mA -700V +/-20V

Exposure

According to the printed image pattern, the LED Head throws infrared light onto some part of Drum which corresponds to the black area of printed image pattern. As the Drum has a characteristic to lose the negative electric charges if it is exposed to the light, this part of Drum surface loses the charges and its potential becomes about -20V. (This potential is not constant but is variable by the environment.) The other part of Drum surface, which was not exposed to the light from the LED Head, keeps -700V of potential that was given by the Image Corona. An invisible electric image pattern consists of -700V area and -20V area is formed on the surface of Drum as a result. (This is called Electrostatic Latent Image.) LED Head

3.2.4

Development

The Development Roller, which is evenly covered with the toner, is contacted to the Drum because the Developer Unit is pressed to the Drum side. (The width of contact point is about 5mm.) The Development Roller is supplied with -180V (+/-3V) during print cycle. And both -700V area and -20V area exist on the Drum because the Electrostatic Latent Image has been formed in the former Exposure process. Seen from the voltage of Development Roller (-180V), the -20V area on the Drum is relatively positive. So the toner moves from the Development Roller to the -20V area of Drum. On the other hand, the -700V area is relatively negative seen from the Development Roller. So the toner does not move to the Drum but stays on the Development Roller. A visible toner image is formed on the Drum as a result. Development Roller Drum Development Roller

Even if some toner was not removed by the Cleaning Roller but remained on the -700V area of Drum (It corresponds to the white area of the print) in the later [3.2.8 Drum Cleaning], this toner is removed at the time of Development because it moves to the Development Roller of which potential (-180V) is higher than Drum (-700V). So there will be no case that unnecessary black spot is printed on the white area of the print. The remained toner that moved to the Development Roller is carried into the Developer Unit and then reused. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Reference
The Developer Unit has not only the Development Roller but also 2 more rollers inside which are also supplied with the individual voltages. The Developer Unit controls the movement of toner in the unit taking advantage of the difference of potentials among these rollers, and covers the Development Roller with the toner in the end. Refer to [3.3 Controlling the Movement of Toner in the Developer Unit] on the page 3-15 to know how the Developer Unit controls the movement.

3.2.5

Pre-transfer LED

The potential of non-toner area on the Drum is strongly charged with -700V. If we take the next [Transfer Process] and [Separation Process] with this state, the toner may not be transferred enough from the Drum to the printing media, or it will be difficult to separate the printing media from the Drum. Therefore the Pre-transfer LED (green LED) throws light onto the Drum to remove the negative electric charges some degree from the non-toner area. The potential of non-toner area is increased from -700V to about -500V (This potential is not constant but is variable by the environment.) by this process.

-180V -700V

-20V -500V -20V

Pre-transfer LED

Reference
(1) The non-toner area of the Drum will keep -700V of negative potential if we do not take Pre-transfer Process. Such a high negative potential tends to attract the positive electric charges given from the Transfer Corona to the printing media. As some of positive charges will move onto the Drum, the printing media can not keep enough positive charges. As a result, not so small amount of toner remains on the Drum because the printing media loses the power to attract it. (Print tends to get lighter.) If a light is thrown from the Pre-transfer LED, the potential of non-toner area is increased to -500V. With this potential, it is possible to avoid the positive charges move onto the Drum. As the printing media is enough charged positively, toner is transferred well.

Reference
(2) -700V of potential on the non-toner area is so strong that the media, which is charged positively by the Transfer Process, is strongly attracted to this -700V area by the static force. So it is difficult to separate the media from the Drum, which will result in a jam or other problems. If the Pre-transfer LED throws light to the non-toner area, the negative charges are removed from the non-toner area and the static force gets weaker. It becomes easier to separate the media from the Drum as a result.

Transfer

The printing media is charged positively as the Transfer Corona discharges positive electric charges from under the media. The toner existing on the -20V area on the Drum will move to the printing media because the potential of the media comes to be higher than the Drum by the Transfer Process. The voltage supplied to the Transfer Corona Wire is as follows. Transfer Corona Wire : +520V +/-30V (When the Insulated Drum is used.) Transfer Guide Plate Drum

Printing media

Transfer Corona

Positive electric charges

Reference
The Transfer Guide Plate, which exists before the transfer point, is grounded through the Varistor to keep only the necessary amount of positive electric charges while dismissing over charges to the ground. 1. If the Transfer Guide Plate is directly grounded, the positive electric charges given to the printing media will escape to the ground through the Transfer Guide Plate. As the printing media is not enough charged positive, much toner remains on the Drum not being transferred onto the media. The image looks very light in this case. 2. If the Transfer Guide Plate is floated from the ground so as to block the escape route of the positive electric charges, it collects too much positive charges because the Transfer Corona exists nearby it. As the Transfer Guide Plate is strongly charged positive, it attracts the toner floating inside the machine. This toner attracted onto the Transfer Guide Plate will cause the dirt on the back of the print.

3.2.7

Separation

The printing media is attracted to the Drum after the Transfer because the potential of media is positive and that of Drum is negative (about -20 to -500V). It is necessary for avoiding the jam to separate the media from the Drum by removing the static force between them. The Separation Corona takes AC discharge being supplied with the AC voltage and the DC voltage. AC voltage : 4.6V DC voltage : -300V As the AC voltage is compensated by the negative DC voltage, the negative charges are generated more than positive ones. The negative charges from the Separation Corona and the positive charges of the printing media offset each other. The static force between the printing media and the Drum is reduced as a result, and the media is separated from the Drum by its weight.

Separation Corona

Positive charges of the media are removed by the AC discharge.

Drum Cleaning (Removal of remained toner)

Some amount of toner was not transferred onto the printing media but remained on the Drum. This remained toner will be removed by the Cleaning Roller. The Cleaning Roller is supplied with +700V (+/-3V), and the potential of Drum is about -20V at this time. As the Cleaning Roller is relatively positive and the Drum is negative, the toner moves from the Drum to the Cleaning Roller.

NOTE
If too much toner exists in a small area (like a trace of solid black image) the Cleaning Roller may not be able to remove all of them. But this toner is removed from the Drum in the Development Process.

Fusing

After Transfer / Separation Processes, the printing media is transported to the Fuser Unit by the Inner Transportation Unit. The Fuser Unit mainly consists of the Fuser Roller and the Pressure Roller. The Fuser Roller is very hot, and the Pressure Roller is strongly pressed to the Fuser Roller by the spring. The toner is firmly fused onto the printing media by the heat and the pressure when the media passes through between these rollers. Fuser Roller

Controlling the Movement of Toner in the Developer Unit

There are 3 kinds of rollers called Development Roller, Regulation Roller and Toner Supply Roller in the Developer Unit. Each roller is supplied with its own voltage. In the following list, the voltage of the Development Roller (-180V) is measured against the ground. The other voltages mean the difference against the voltage of Development Roller. Name of roller Development Roller Regulation Roller (Center) Regulation Roller (Both sides) Toner Supply Roller Supplied voltage -180V +/-3V against the ground -40V against the voltage of Development Roller 0V (Connected to the ground) -600V against the voltage of Development Roller

NOTE
The Regulation Roller is divided into central area and both sides area by the insulator, and individual voltages is supplied to each area.

3-15

K96sm3e1.doc (Ver. A.0)

Taking advantage of the difference of potentials among these rollers, the movement of toner is controlled in the Developer Unit as follows. 1. The Toner Supply Roller carries the toner toward the Development Roller. 2. The voltage of the Toner Supply Roller is 600V lower than that of Development Roller. When the toner reaches the contact point of these rollers, therefore, it moves onto the Development Roller. Then the Development Roller carries the toner toward the Regulation Roller. 3. The Regulation Roller is strongly pressed to the Development Roller by the spring, and these 2 rollers move to the opposite direction each other at the contact point. Even if the Developer Roller carries more toner than required, the Regulation Roller limits the amount of toner that can pass through between 2 rollers. So very small amount of toner can pass through between rollers and the rest is returned back to the inside. As the voltage of Development Roller is 40V higher than that of Regulation Roller (Center), the toner which has passed through between these rollers is firmly attracted to the Development Roller. Very thin layer of toner is evenly formed on the surface of Development Roller as a result. 4. Much toner sticks onto the Regulation Roller when it is returned back to the inside. This toner is scraped off by the Scraper which is contacted to the Regulation Roller.

5. The voltage of both sides of Regulation Roller is 0V as these parts are connected to the ground. It is higher than that of Development Roller (-180V). When the toner reaches the contact point of these rollers, therefore, it moves onto the Regulation Roller. The side areas of the Development Roller are not covered with the toner as a result, so it is possible to avoid the toner drops into the machine from the side.

Toner Collection Process

As explained in [3.2.8 Drum Cleaning] on the page 3-13, the Cleaning Roller is supplied with +600V to remove the remained toner from the Drum during the print cycle. This toner gathered by the Cleaning Roller is returned to the Developer Unit in the following 3 cases. (1) When the printer has finished printing out all the accumulated print jobs and then going to stop. (2) When the used roll media is ended and changed with another one. (3) When the used roll media if changed from one to another because the print size specified in the job is different. This process to return the toner is called Toner Collection Process. When the trailing edge of the last sheet passes over the Separation Area, the printer will take the Toner Collection Process as follows rotating the Drum for 2 revolutions. 1. The Eraser Lamp throws light onto the Drum to remove the negative electric charges from the Drum. The potential of Drum becomes 0V. 2. The voltage supplied to the Cleaning Roller is changed to -500V in the Toner Collection Process. As the potential of Drum becomes higher than that of Cleaning Roller, toner on the Cleaning Roller moves onto the Drum.

3. The voltage supplied to the Development Roller is also changed to +350V (+/-3V) in the Toner Collection Process. As the potential of Development Roller becomes higher than that of Drum, toner on the Drum moves onto the Development Roller. Then the toner is carried into the Developer Unit by both the Development Roller and the Toner Supply Roller. Development Roller Remained toner

NOTE
(1) When Powerprint or KIP2000 Series Scanner is connected to the KIP6000 Printer, the density command sent from these devices will become a basis to decide the LED strobe time for the Supplemental Image. But if you connect some special outer device and it can not send the density command, the basis for the decision is [LED strobe time for Main Pixel] decided in the above item No.3 (2) Please read [REFERENCE] on the next page as for the Supplemental Pixel (3) The image quality will become worse if you increase the setting value so much. Especially when the data is sent from Scanner with Photo mode, the result is not satisfied. (4) When Scanner is connected, Smoothing is not necessary.

Reference
Normally the KIP6000 Printer makes 400 times of image exposure against the vertical direction as its resolution is 400DPI. Image pixels created by this normal timing is called [Main Pixel]. When a certain image pattern (like a diagonal line) is printed, however, the KIP6000 will make additional image exposure between Main Pixels only for the vertical direction. This additional image exposure is completed within a very short time. The image pixel created by this process is called [Supplemental Pixel]. Normal image pattern In case of a certain image pattern Main Pixels Supplemental Pixels Main Pixels

Supplemental Pixels are provided so as to fill the space between Main Pixels. When we compare a vertical / horizontal 1 dot line and a diagonal 1 dot line, for example, the diagonal one looks not clear and not smooth although the vertical / horizontal one looks clear and smooth. This is because the diagonal line has a wider space between Main Pixels than the vertical / horizontal one. If this space is filled with the Supplemental Pixel, diagonal line comes to look smoother and clearer. No Supplemental Pixel Supplemental Pixels are provided.

(10) Fusing Temperature Cycle (Ripple) (Sub Mode No.10)

FACTORY SETTING
It is possible to decide the range of fusing temperature cycle (ripple). The setting unit is degree centigrade, and the setting range is from 1 to 10. Setting Value Unit 01-10 Centigrade Fusing temperature rises and falls repeatedly within the decided range of cycle. The upper limit of range corresponds to the fusing temperature decided in each No.08, 0A and 0C. The lower limit is decided by the following formula. Fusing temperature (Setting value of No.08, 0A and 0C) + Setting value of No.10 = Upper limit Fusing temperature (Setting value of No.08, 0A and 0C) - Setting value of No.10 = Lower limit (Example) When the fusing temperature for the plain paper is specified as 175 degrees centigrade in No.08 and the setting value of No.10 is 5, the upper limit is 180 degrees centigrade while lower limit is 170 degrees centigrade. Temperature is controlled as follows. 1) When the fusing temperature rises up to the upper limit (180 degrees), the machine stops heating up the Fuser Element. It corresponds to (1) in the following figure. 2) Fusing temperature will fall little by little. It corresponds to (2) in the figure. 3) When the temperature falls down to the lower limit (170 degrees), the machine starts heating up the Fuser Element again. It corresponds to (3) in the figure. 4) Fuser Element is heated up until its temperature reaches the upper limit. It corresponds to (4) in the figure. 5) The fusing temperature is kept almost constant within 10 degrees of range by repeating (1) to (4) many times.

Notes
(1) When Fuser Temperature Rising Error (E-01) or Fuser Over Temperature Error (E-02) occurs during the usage of machine, it is impossible to clear the error even if you turn off the machine after taking a proper treatment because it is memorized in the memory. When these errors occur, do as follows. 1. Find the cause of error and take a proper treatment. 2. Turn on the machine. The same Error Code will be indicated again as E-01. Enter the Service Mode, and then select the Error Check Masking Mode. 3. Mask the error in the way mentioned on and after the next page. The error will be cleared. 4. Do not forget to cancel error masking after clearing the error because it is very dangerous if the machine ignores those errors. (Error masking will be cancelled automatically if you turn off the machine or cancel the Service Mode.) (2) It is impossible to mask the Door Open Error.
