Abstract

A process for providing opaque inkjet barcoding identification markings on electrophotoreceptor production webs is disclosed. The process is comprised of the steps of: applying onto at least one edge of the photoreceptor web a machine readable bar code pattern comprising white or opaque, ultraviolet light curable liquid ink delivered from at least one integral ink jet printer printhead; and exposing the bar code pattern image to an ultra violet light source to effect curing of the inked image. The cured ink bar code should preferably, 1) resist dissolution by solvents used in photoreceptor manufacturing processes, and 2) adhere well to the photoreceptor web during flexing, for example, in manufacture and actual use.
