Abstract

The mount which holds a copier's magnetic brush developer accurately spaced to a moving photoconductor also allows the developer to (1) move vertically upward, as the developer's end walls locate on pins which are mounted to the copier frame, (2) move directly away from the photoconductor when the developer is subsequently pulled off these pins, and (3) thereafter slide out of the copier, for service and the like. Fig. 1 is a front view of magnetic brush developer 10, having four magnetic brush developer rolls which must be accurately spaced relative moving photoconductor 11. Developer 10 is supported by one or more pins 12 (Fig. 2) which are mounted at fixed positions on the frame of the copier (not shown).
