Abstract

In an imaging system a thin polyweb 11 is brought against randomly disposed spacers on the surface of a photoconductor 10, thereby maintaining an air gap A between the web and surface. Thereafter the outer surface 14 of the web is charged with a corotron 15 and means 16 iniagewise expose the web, whereby air in the gap is ionized and provides a latent image on the inner side of the web. The image-bearing web is guided away from the photoconductor by a biased roller 18, the bias being provided to avoid image deterioration. Subse-quently, the web passes to another biased roller 19 and a corotron 20 neutralizes the initial charge placed on the outer surface of the web, The neutralized web moves to a biased roller 21 having a thin relaxable insulating coating 22 and the latent image is developed with a liquid ink arrangement 23. The developed image is transferred to a paper 24. A light 12 is used to clean the photoconductor.

LIQUID INK IMAGING SYSTEM (Cont'd)

In an imaging system a thin polyweb 11 is brought against
randomly disposed spacers on the surface of a photoconductor
10, thereby maintaining an air gap A between the web and
surface. Thereafter the outer surface 14 of the web is
charged with a corotron 15 and means 16 iniagewise expose the
web, whereby air in the gap is ionized and provides a latent
image on the inner side of the web. The image-bearing web is
guided away from the photoconductor by a biased roller 18, the
bias being provided to avoid image deterioration. Subse-
quently, the web passes to another biased roller 19 and a
corotron 20 neutralizes the initial charge placed on the outer
surface of the web, The neutralized web moves to a biased
roller 21 having a thin relaxable insulating coating 22 and
the latent image is developed with a liquid ink arrangement
23. The developed image is transferred to a paper 24. A light
12 is used to clean the photoconductor.
