Paper Abstract

In the first part of the paper the use of different paper qualities for different non-impact technologies is discussed.Special output technologies are explained and also the possibilities to use plain bookpaper is pointed out. The main technologies like electro-photography, electrography, ink-jet, magnetography and thermography are shortly explained and the state of the art of papermaking in connection with technology development of non-impact printers is listed. Also a short explanation is given about the 2 main directions of research 1. Developing paper for non-impact technologies 2. Developing non-impact technics for a special paper quality The quality parameters of the different technologies in respect to paper are mentioned and specifications are given for different paper qualities used for special non-impact procedures. At least the efforts of a modern paper mill producing new paper qualities and their testing programs for a constant quality of paper are shown. Also areport is given, how to get figures about the runability of paper and also which short testing procedures are useful for the enduser of hard-copy-paper. In the summary a table of special paper parameters for special printing technics is given.
