Abstract

Proposed is a method to increase fuser roll temperature while decreasing the amount of toner deposited on a copy when fixing an image to a heavyweight substrate such as label stock, transparencies, or card stock. By implementing the two actions, the image fixing level on subsequent copies is maximized. A second embodiment employs the proposed method to increase fuser temperature when copying with color toners.
