Abstract

Disclosed is multiple sleeved liquid ink development photoreceptor substrate comprising a base tube and three electroformed sleeves installed thereon. The outer sleeve end sections are nonimaging and are thicker than an inner section and provide, for example, a registering surface that an ink thickness roll registers from. The center section bears the photoconductive coating. The sleeves are assembled and installed via a temperature difference between the sleeves or an adhesive. The assembled liquid ink development photoreceptor substrate is considerably less costly compared to a conventional coated aluminum substrate.

Disclosed is multiple sleeved liquid ink development photoreceptor substrate comprising a base tube and three electroformed sleeves installed thereon. The outer sleeve end sections are nonimaging and are thicker than an inner section and provide, for example, a registering surface that an ink thickness roll registers from. The center section bears the photoconductive coating. The sleeves are assembled and installed via a temperature difference between the sleeves or an adhesive. The assembled liquid ink development photoreceptor substrate is considerably less costly compared to a conventional coated aluminum substrate. Other benefits include: eliminating the need to machine the proposed substrates to required mirror or matte finishes; the mirror or matte finish can be applied via a sleeve and not formed from aluminum; the substrate provides a precise outside diameter, roundness, straightness, and end registers to mount and control the substrate; the tolerances of the electroformed nickel sleeves are highly precise and the assembly of the complete substrate would satisfy all the dimensional requirements of a one piece substrate; the nickel or other sleeve material would provide the required finish, from mirror to matte, and be fitted on to the new substrate via, for example, either a...
