Abstract

In the solvent process of preparing an electrophotographic carrier, the shot cart needs to be grounded to ensure safety. Normally, a grounding strap is manually attached to the cart by the operator allowing for possible oversight of the grounding procedure. A means is provided to automatically ground the cart without operator intervention.
