Abstract

Disclosed is a fuser temperature control for use in an electrophotographic printing machine. Paper with toner applied thereon passes between a pair of rollers. When the rollers are heated the toner melts and attaches to the paper by flowing into micro-crevices in the paper. Since the paper briefly contacts the heated rollers, roll pressure, temperature, and toner characteristics are critical to the fusing process.
