Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR REDUCING LIQUID CONTENT IN ELECTROSTATIC PRINTING
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF POUR RÉDUIRE LA TENEUR EN LIQUIDE DANS L’IMPRESSION ÉLECTROSTATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A method of reducing liquid content of an image formed on an imaging surface (16) of an electrostatic printing apparatus (90) is disclosed. The method comprises: (a) heating a liquid developer beyond 30 degrees centigrade to a predetermined temperature being lower than 50 degrees centigrade by heater (80); (b) applying the liquid developer via outlets (106) on the imaging surface (16) so as to form the image thereon; and (c) squeezing the liquid developer via a squeegee (30). The predetermined temperature is selected so as to reduce a liquid content of the image.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de réduction de la teneur en liquide d’une image formée sur une surface d’imagerie (16) d’un dispositif d’impression électrostatique (90). Le procédé comprend : (a) le chauffage d’un révélateur liquide au-dessus de 30 degrés centigrades à une température prédéterminée inférieure à 50 degrés centigrades par un chauffage (80) ; (b) l'application du révélateur liquide au moyen de sorties (106) sur la surface d'imagerie (16) de façon à y former l’image ; et (c) le retrait du révélateur liquide au moyen d’une raclette (30). La température prédéterminée est sélectionnée de façon à réduire la teneur en liquide de l'image.
