Abstract

Photoreceptor belts should be protected during shipment and storage by adequate packaging. A particularly suitable package has been created which facilitates insertion of one or more photoreceptor belts. As illustrated in the Figure, package 10 comprises a partially formed, large diameter cylinder 12 having a substantially "C" shaped cross section with a slot 14. At least one flexible, photoreceptor belt (not shown) is easily inserted within the partially formed, large diameter cylinder 12 and the cylinder 12 is thereafter compressed to form a smaller diameter closed cylinder 18 having a substantially "0" shaped cross section. A corrugated end cap 20 is attached to at least one end of the closed cylinder 18. If desired, the capped closed cylinder may be inserted into a plastic bag (not shown) which can subsequently be sealed by suitable means such as by heat. The plastic bag may be obtained in roll form with or without pre-printed information on it.
