Low-friction technologies such as an offset cylinder and a roller rocker arm are supplemented by such techniques as intelligent control to lessen friction during power generation and the first adoption of a shell-type needle bearing for the rocker arm shaft.
Offset cylinder reduces friction caused by the contact between the sliding piston and the cylinder.
Considering that in electrophotography for a better transfer of ink from the photoconductor to the medium a positive offset cylinder charging is necessary for the reproduction gamut due to voltage from +500V to +700V are shown.
Handsheet made from recycled fibers of indirect electrophotography at + 600 V voltage of the offset cylinder contain a total of fewer specks, but a larger area.
From the printing plate (plate cylinder) the paste ink and the fountain solution are transferred on the offset cylinder and through this cylinder on the paper (Seydel, 1996).
The new D-Series also features centralized grease zerks for the swing pinion and bearing and offset cylinder.
The investigations have to prove if it is possible to contribute to solve the mentioned problem by choosing the conditions in different phases of indirect electrophotographic printing (scorotrone voltage, laser strength, offset cylinder voltage, concentration of the liquid toner etc.
Also minimizing friction is an offset cylinder bore design: the crankshaft is aligned such that the side thrust of the piston is minimized just after the top-dead-center position in the combustion cycle.
After the electrostatic ink applying, the image separation which is now visible is transferred by adhesion from the mantle onto the rubber blanket of the offset cylinder.
