Abstract

This invention relates to the charging of photoreceptors in the electrostatographic process for making copies. Conventionally, such charging is obtained by way of a corona produced by a corotron, which is essentially a thin wire under a high applied voltage (in the order of 6,000 to 9,000 volts). The present invention provides that such charging of a photoreceptor be carried out by a novel metallic fiber brush.
