Abstract

Typically, photoreceptor blade cleaning is compatible with continuous band photo.- receptors, i.e., one which does not have an open seam. Where a replenishable photoreceptor is used, a scroll stores the used and unused portions of the photoreceptor on separate rolls inside a support drum. One or two gaps then exist at the location where the photoreceptor enters and exits the interior of the support drum. The tip of a typical cleaner blade could easily hang up in the gap causing blade fold under with resultant damage to the cleaner system. To obviate this, the

Typically, photoreceptor blade cleaning is compatible with continuous band photo.~ receptors, i.e., one which does not have an open seam. Where a replenishable photoreceptor is used, a scroll stores the used and unused portions of the photoreceptor on separate rolls inside a support drum. One or two gaps then exist at the location where the photoreceptor enters and exits the interior of the support drum. The tip of a typical cleaner blade could easily hang up in the gap causing blade fold under with resultant damage to the cleaner system. To obviate this, the

seam 5 in photoreceptor support drum 6 is skewed so that the major portion of the cleaning blade 7 is always riding on the photoreceptor and not in the gap. This provides smooth movement of the blade 7 over the gap.
