Lexmark International enlisted a SCOPE team to develop two test devices for current printer systems. These were implemented to aid in generating a fundamental understanding for how various materials impact the system. This understanding, in turn, helped progress future printer technology development. The first device was utilized to measure the triboelectric charge, and the second measured the coefficient of friction of various materials incorporated in the system. The SCOPE Lexmark team developed electrical, mechanical, and control system designs for both.
