Abstract

In certain xerographic blade cleaning subsystems, it is often desirable to continuously maintain small amounts of toner particles on the cleaning blade to provide dry lubrication. Insufficient blade lubrication leads to accelerated blade wear, reduced blade life, cleaning deterioration and print quality defects.
