Abstract

In a thermal ink jet system, a heater roll or drum is used to dry the ink after transfer of the ink to a copy substrate such as paper. The operation of a heater roll is similar to that of a fuser roll in that a coated metal roll is heated by a quartz lamp to an internal temperature of about 13OoC, and the roll is used to fix ink or toner to the paper.
