Abstract

An apparatus for fusing toner images I onto flexible support material s in which the support material is transported in a path past a flash fusing lamp 102. The path is defined by an outer member 112 and an inner member 114 which guide the sheet past the flash fusing lamp. The inner member is made of a transparent material and the outer member is reflec-tive. Warm air under pressure from blower 110 is used to advance the support material along its path and to crust the toner images facing inwardly toward the lamp to prevent offset and reduce energy requirements of the lamp to permanently fix the images to the support material.
