Abstract

Disclosed is a procedure for generating instant developers for color printing by electrophotographic printing machines. The process uses a developer housing agitation system to provide the necessary energy to obtain favorable developer properties. When a color change is required, a pre-weighed bottle of carrier is dumped into the developer housing and the correct amount of toner is added. Blending is allowed to occur using the machine's developer housing auger.
