It is a rotating belt that is sometimes giant which carries the combination of various colours of toner particles. This means a color laser-class printer will sometimes have four toner cartridges. The transfer belt will move in entrance of all of the four cartridges coloured as cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black). The cartridges will then precisely apply every toner layer to the belt which will then apply the mixed layers uniformly onto the paper.
At a predetermined timing, a registration curler 610 sends transfer paper P as a switch medium (switch materials) to the part between the secondary switch bias curler 605 and the intermediate switch belt 501 set in a stretched method on the secondary switch opposed roller 510. A cleansing blade 608 serving as a cleaning unit is involved with the secondary switch bias curler 605.
The cleaning blade 608 performs cleaning by removing matter hooked up to the surface of the secondary switch bias roller 605. With the seamless belt, it's potential to assemble an electrophotographic apparatus able to forming excessive-quality photographs. When the coating movie has been sufficiently leveled, a powder supplying gadget 35 and a pushing member 33 are placed as proven in FIG.
Next, the spherical resin particles buried in the floor of the layer fashioned of the elastic body are described. The elastic layer is laid over the bottom layer, consists of spherical resin particles and a layer formed of an elastic body described beneath, and has a concavo-convex pattern in a floor of the elastic layer. In specific, the elastic layer includes the layer formed of an elastic physique laid over the bottom layer, and the spherical resin particles arranged in a airplane path in the surface of the elastic layer. 5 is a schematic drawing exhibiting a cross part of an intermediate switch belt including an elastic layer which incorporates spherical resin particles in a plurality of layers. three is a schematic drawing showing a cross-sectional form of an intermediate switch belt by which exposed parts of spherical resin particles from an elastic layer have various heights.
Description of the Related Art Conventionally, for a wide range of purposes, seamless belts have been used as members included in electrophotographic apparatuses. In the tactic described above, a seamless belt is employed as the intermediate transfer belt. Through our web site, you can't only browse different products but additionally customize them based on your needs. You can choose from a variety of switch slings, customized gait belts, switch belts for bodily therapy etc. As an additional benefit, we offer our prospects a 1-12 months guarantee on these products.
Under these circumstances, demands for properties (such as high-speed switch and positional accuracy) of the intermediate transfer belt are heightening and it's changing into essential to fulfill these demanded properties. Also, because the intermediate transfer belt is laid out over a wide area in an apparatus and high voltage is utilized thereto for picture switch, the intermediate transfer belt is required to be flame-retardant. To meet such demands, polyimide resins, polyamide-imide resins and the like, which are highly elastic, extremely heat-resistant resins, are primarily used as materials for intermediate switch belts.
Meanwhile, the surface of the photoconductor drum 200 having undergone the switch of the pictures to the belt is cleaned by the photoconductor cleaning gadget 201 and uniformly subjected to cost elimination by a charge-eliminating lamp 202. Residual toner remaining on the outer circumferential floor of the intermediate switch belt 501 subsequent to the secondary switch of the toner photographs onto the switch paper P is cleaned off by the belt cleansing blade 504 after being charged by the charger 503. The belt cleansing blade 504 is made to touch and separate from the outer circumferential surface of the intermediate switch belt 501 at a predetermined timing by a cleaning member attaching and detaching mechanism (not proven). The intermediate transfer belt 501 is rotated by the belt driving roller 508 in a clockwise path as proven by the arrow.
7; subsequently, while the cylindrical assist is being rotated, spherical resin particles 34 are evenly sprinkled over the floor of the layer shaped of the elastic body 34, then the pushing member 33 is pushed under a continuing pressure towards the spherical resin particles 34 sprinkled over the floor. By technique of the pushing member 33, the spherical resin particles 34 are buried within the layered physique 32 which incorporates the base layer supported by the metal mildew drum 31 and the layer shaped of the elastic body whereas eradicating the excess spherical resin particles 34. In the current invention, using monodisperse spherical resin particles makes it possible to form a uniform, single particle layer by a easy process that only includes the foregoing leveling carried out by the pushing member 33. It is most well-liked that a adequate quantity of the spherical resin particles be provided when applying the spherical resin particles over the layer fashioned of the elastic body. A small quantity of the spherical resin particles would increase the uncovered space of the elastic body, which isn't covered with the spherical resin particles, to considerably reduce residual toner cleansing property and filming resistance in addition to toner transferability.
