Abstract

It is known to provide instant-on roll fusers by gluing a foil heating layer inside a nickel tube and outside a filament wound tube. The drawbacks of putting the heater circuit on the inside surface of a Ni tube are defects in the Ni tube and cost and difficulty in fabrication. Putting the heater circuit on the outside surface of a tube is a simpler and cost effective process.
