Abstract

A fixture that is useful in testing the fix level of fused xerographic toners on heavy weight paper stock is disclosed. The device simulates the handling that such stock, for example specialty papers and envelopes, is expected to encounter during useful service life. The device also finds utility in measuring smear and fix properties of magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) printing applications.
