Abstract

Disclosed is a procedure for generating instant developers for color printing by electrophotographic printing machines. The process uses a developer housing agitation system to provide the necessary energy to obtain favorable developer properties. When a color change is required, a pre-weighed bottle of carrier is dumped into the developer housing and the correct amount of toner is added. Blending is allowed to occur using the machine's developer housing auger.

Disclosed is a procedure for generating instant developers for color printing by electrophotographic printing machines. The process uses a developer housing agitation system to provide the necessary energy to obtain favorable developer properties. When a color change is required, a pre-weighed bottle of carrier is dumped into the developer housing and the correct amount of toner is added. Blending is allowed to occur using the machine's developer housing auger.

The disclosed procedure eliminates in-plant blending of developers and the subsequent reduction of inventory costs.
