Blade cleaning has been an established method for removing toner from a photoreceptor for many years. The drawback to cleaning with an elastomeric blade is that the seal between blade and photoreceptor is relatively easily broken with the result that field failures occur randomly and are primarily associated with fibers under the blade, local tuckunders, etc.
