Abstract

See full text

The magnitude and polarity of the voltage on the fuser roll surface is controlled by either electronic charge application means or by applying charge control agents to the fuser. For negative toner, the fuser roll voltage must also be negative (and visa versa). This will repel the negative toner at the entrance to the fuser nip, prevent the toner from transferring to the fuser roll at the entrance of the fuser nip and preclude the formation of NVO and consequently prevent MOC.
