In a magnetic brush developer unit 1 as shown in Figure 1, the developer material (magnetic toner, or toner/magnetic carrier mixture), with which the electrostatic latent image on the photoreceptor surface 2 is developed, is transported, as shown by the arrow path line, up the backsides of up to four rotating magnetic brush development rollers 3, 4, 5, 6, to the top of the development zone, and then transported down the frontsides of these same rollers to develop the image. Separate lifting conveyors or rollers for the magnetic toner or toner/magnetic carrier mixture are not required.
