Abstract

In an electrophotographic printing machine, toner particles are dispensed into the developer housing as the toner particles are depleted therefrom during the process of developing the electrostatuz latent image recorded on the photoconductive member. The toner particles are discharged from a hopper to an auger which advances the toner to the dispense point. Hereinbefore, the auger was substantially rigid and comprised a helical member which rotated to advance the toner to the dispense point.
