Panasonic commercialized "Thermoelectric Cooling Roller" equipped with thermoelectric devices contributing to space-saving, maintenance-saving for cooling systems of commercial use printers.
Osaka, Japan - Panasonic Corporation announced today that it has developed Thermoelectric Cooling Roller" equipped with thermoelectric devices and the mass production commences in July 2016. Without using any water, the industry first*1 thermoelectric cooling roller does not need arranged pipes to circulate water, making cooling system itself compact. The thermoelectric system also reduces time and cost on maintenances, for the periodical water exchange and cleaning are not necessary.
For two-sided printing with commercial use printers, after printing on one side of the sheet, the water cooling type roller is generally used for cooling the heated dry paper in order to continue back printing. For water cooling system, spaces are necessary for waste water disposal as periodical water exchange and for arranged pipes, and moreover the water leakage may happen. By using the new roller built in with thermoelectric elements of increased density per unit area, the excellent cooling capability and quick thermal response are achieved, and hence the thermoelectric cooling roller without using any water is commercialized.
Besides commercial use printers, the product can be used for temperature-controlled conveyance devices which need temperature control process by rollers, machines tools, as well as food processing machines, rubber processing machines, and medical related machines such as high precision temperature-controlled units etc.
