Abstract

A benchtop photoreceptor break-in device for use with alloy photoreceptors of electrophotographic printing and copying machines is disclosed. The device is used to stabilize and test certain photoreceptor electrical properties and to ensure photoreceptor product quality. The device emulates a complete xerographic machine system(except paper handling, development and fusing features) including photoreceptor: charging 1; exposing 2; cleaning brush 3; and discharging erase lamp 4 stations. The device is particularly well suited for easy installation and removal of large numbers of alloy drum photoreceptors 5 through a clam shell cover 6. The device may also be easily adapted for break-in use with belt type photoreceptors.
