Abstract

Disclosed is an electrophotographic imaging member comprising a thin hollow member coaxially in line with, and enveloping, a centered removable sleeve having a length slightly shorter than the cylinder. The cylinder has an inner surface in contiguous contact with the outer surface of the removable sleeve. In other embodiments, end caps in contact with both the inner surface of the cylinder and with one end of the inner sleeve are shown in the figures.

MULTIPLE PHOTORECEPTOR SUBSTRATE MOUNTING(C0nt'd)

Disclosed is an electrophotographic imaging member comprising a thin hollow member coaxially in line with, and enveloping, a centered removable sleeve having a length slightly shorter than the cylinder. The cylinder has an inner surface in contiguous contact with the outer surface of the removable sleeve. In other embodiments, end caps in contact with both the inner surface of the cylinder and with one end of the inner sleeve are shown in the figures.

Figure 1 shows a conventional photoreceptor assembly including a photoreceptor substrate 1 with end caps 2, mounted on a shaft 3, drive pins, stub shafts, and the like.

Figure 2 illustrates a thin wall photoreceptor substrate combination wherein a replacement or replaceable insert 4 is capable of supporting a thin wall photoreceptor substrate 1.

Figure 3 shows a thick wall photoreceptor substrate 6 mounted to shaft 3 via modified end caps 5.

Figure 4 illustrates...
