Abstract

The effects of receiver stock and platen covering on pressure in a thermal printer nip were investigated using the nonlinear finite element method. “Design of experiment” techniques were used to reduce computational effort. Pressure in the nip is shown to be dominated by receiver thickness and stiffness. Examples of pressure versus head load are given and the relationship between these important variables discussed.
