Abstract

Proposed is the use of C02 cartridges for mounting a photoreceptor on a mandrel during field replacement. The cartridges may be similar to those used in air guns to provide a pressurized gas. In this application, they eliminate the air compressor required during the current process of providing an interference fit using pneumatics to expand the belt and lubricate the interface. The cartridges are smaller, weigh less, and make less noise than the compressor which must be carried by a service representative. They are low lost items that would not affect printing machine pricing since they can be treated as a consumable, or provided with the photoreceptor
