Abstract

An electrostatographic apparatus having a flexible web or belt imaging member adapted to pass over a pair of supporting rollers and a liquid development assembly having a liquid de-veloper applicator roll in contact with the imaging surface between the supporting rollers to apply liquid developer to the imaging surface is disclosed. The liquid developer appli-cator roll in contact with the imaging surface between the supporting rollers is positioned so that tension is applied to the imaging surface. The development assembly comprises a reservoir receptacle having a liquid developer applicator roll member which may be movable into and out of contact with the surface of a flexible imaging member. The receptacle is movably mounted by support means including one arm to suspend the development assembly from a fixed support as shown in Figures 1 and 2.
