In the soft-soft fuser design requiring a high pressure loading using for instance, a Viton coated fuser roll and pressure roll, the stripping reliability is of major concern. As the fuser and pressure roll diameter exceed certain upper limits, stripper fingers or air strippers have to be installed to assist stripping. IJsing the present state of art, to design a fuser for 17 inch wide paper, the outside diameter of the aluminum fuser rolls has to be increased over a fuser roll designed for 14 inch wide paper, to control the deflection and stress.
