(57) Abstract:
(EN): A unit housing (1) is attached to a housing (120) of an image formation device (100). The unit housing (1) comprises a main unit (2) and a positioning unit (3). The positioning unit (3) determines the position of the main unit (2) in relation to the housing (120). The main unit (2) has a first frame (21) and a second frame (22) facing the first frame (21). The positioning unit (3) has: a positioning frame (31) that extends parallel to the first frame (21); and one or more through members (32) extending from the positioning frame (31) and passing through the first frame (21) and the second frame (22). The tip part of the one or more through members (32) is held by the housing (120).
