Title
(EN) TONER CONTAINER AND IMAGE FORMING APPARATUS
(FR) RÉCIPIENT POUR TONER ET APPAREIL DE FORMATION D’IMAGE
Abstract
(EN) A toner container and an image forming apparatus are disclosed. The toner container includes a guiding member formed at a part surrounding a toner outlet to be protruded from a circumferential surface of the toner container for guiding an opening or closing operation of a shutter member in a circumferential direction of the toner container. The image forming apparatus includes an image forming apparatus main body. The image forming apparatus main body includes a main body side shutter for opening or closing a toner supplying opening to be connected to the toner outlet. When the shutter member is opened, an end surface of the guiding member pushes the main body side shutter together with the opening operation of the shutter member, and the toner supplying opening is opened and is connected to the toner outlet.
(FR) Récipient pour toner et appareil de formation d’image, le récipient pour toner comprenant un organe de guidage formé au niveau d’une partie entourant une sortie de toner appelée à dépasser d’une surface circonférentielle du récipient pour toner afin de guider une action d’ouverture ou de fermeture d’un organe de volet dans une direction circonférentielle du récipient pour toner. L’appareil de formation d’image comprend un corps principal d’appareil de formation d’image, qui comporte un volet latéral de corps principal servant à ouvrir ou à fermer une ouverture d’alimentation en toner destinée à être reliée à la sortie de toner. Lorsque l’organe de volet est ouvert, une surface terminale de l’organe de guidage pousse le volet latéral de corps principal conjointement à l’action d’ouverture de l’organe de volet, l’ouverture d’alimentation en toner étant alors ouverte et reliée à la sortie de toner.
