|Printer toner particles imaged by the FlowCam. Circularity value is shown beneath each image. Particles are shown in order of decreasing circularity, where 1 is a perfect circle.|
The shape and size of printer toner particles affect image resolution and printer efficiency. The uniformity of a printer toner particle affects the distribution of charge the particle holds and as a result can affect image quality.
Image characterization can be used to determine shape, size, circularity and material uniformity of printer toner particles during and after production. The FlowCam®, a flow imaging microscope, and paired image analysis software VisualSpreadsheet® can be used for rapid quality control characterization of printer toner.
The FlowCam is an ideal replacement to aging Sysmex FPIA-3000 systems that are no longer being supported by the manufacturer.
