Abstract

A fixing device in an electrophotographic copying machine, wherein stripping members 29, each contact the surface of a heating roll 21. Opposing conveying rolls 25 and 26 serve to convey a support material 24 while the latter is held there-between and are positioned on a feedout side of the heating roll 21 for thermally fixing a thermoplastic material on said support material 24 and a pressure roll 22 in contact with the heating roll to form a nip therebetween, The improvement is that conveying rolls 25 and 26 have their peripheral speeds higher than that of said heating roll 21.
