Abstract

An apparatus for maintaining the cleanliness of raster output scanner (ROS) subsystems on electronic printing machines is proposed. The apparatus consists of a laser air duct that is mounted onto the ROS subsystem of an electroinic printing machine. The laser air duct, knife or jet directs forced air at light pressure from an attached air compressor or fan past the ROS output window, thereby eliminating the buildup of dirt and dust particles that affect the performance of the printing machine.
