Abstract

The typical Xerox single pass highlight color printing system uses two separate color toner cartridges lined up near the photoreceptor. Referring to the figure, a toner carousel 10 has four toner cartridges 12,14,16, and 18. The toner cartridges can be removed separately to refill as needed. The brushes 20 of adjacent cartridges are located near each other and the adjacent brushes are parallel to the photoreceptor 22. This adjacent and parallel spacing of the brushes reduces the necessary length of the photoreceptor.
