Abstract

Stripper fingers are typically positioned adjacent a fuser roll to assist separation of copy sheets with fused images thereon from the fuser roll. These fingers are usually flat and either rigid or flexible. This prior design reduces the amount of oil running under each finger and causes increases in dirt contamination and decreased efficiency in the stripping function. An improved design is to make the stripper fingers with a grooved stripping surface, the grooves permitting more oil to penetrate under the fingers resulting in a cleaner system.
