Abstract

Proposed is a method for optimizing a spring to adjust belt photoreceptor interference with a cleaning brush. The method minimizes sensitivity to brush shrinkage and set up tolerance. Photoreceptor spring rate is varied by specifying the distance from a plurality of photoreceptor backers to the cleaning brush. An optimum brush operating location exists between the limits of force uniformity (brush close to the backers) and set up tolerance latitude (brush distant from the backers). The proposed optimization also applies to a deflection loaded (fixed mounted cleaning blade against a belt photoreceptor.
