HICS FUSER MAGNETIC BRUSH CLEANER (Cont~d)

The subject disclosure relates to fuser roll cleaning devices and more particularly, to a magnetic brush cleaner designated by the reference character 10. The brush 10, as shown in Figures 1 and 2, comprises a wire mesh 12 formed in the shape of an elongated cylinder which has a plurality of metallic fibers 14 fastened thereto in such a manner that they would have omnidirectional movement. A pair of magnets 16 disposed internally of the cylindrically shaped wire mesh cause the metallic fibers to stand out from the cylinder thereby giving it the brush~-likeconfiguration. The metallic fibers 14 may be attached in any suitable manner, for example, as illustrated in Figure 2, by a looped wire connection 18 or bending the fiber as indicated as 20 or by means of a ball and detent arrangement 22.

As the coating of the fuser roll 24 wears down the brush, fibers will extend further to compensate for lost coating depth. Accordingly, the fuser roll and brush can be mounted on fixed centers. Also, such a construction will conform to lateral surface variations.
