Abstract

A current focus among the manufacturers of electrographic printing machines is to improve product reliability. One of the major causes of service maintenance, either scheduled or unscheduled, is drive roll contamination. Drive roll contamination degrades a machine's ability to transport paper. By removing the contaminants from the surface of the roll, the life span of the drive roll is increased and the required mean time between service calls, to repair the machine, is reduced.
