Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR REFURBISHING CYLINDRICAL MEMBERS
(FR) APPAREIL DE RECONDITIONNEMENT D'ÉLÉMENTS CYLINDRIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides an apparatus for allowing the resurfacing a cylindrical member in a printer having a fuser member that is externally- heated by a heater roller. The apparatus includes providing a cylindrical member (110) having an outer surface of a high temperature fluorothermoplastic. When it is determined that the outer surface is in need of resurfacing, the fuser member is removed from the printer, and the cylindrical member is mounted in the place of the fuser member. The cylindrical member is rotated at a speed of at least 1 rpm while engaging the outer surface of the fuser member with the heating roller normally used to heat the fuser member at a pressure of at least 5 psi at a temperature of at least 10°C below the fluorothermoplastic melting temperature for a time sufficient to resurface of the outer surface of the cylindrical member.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un appareil qui permet la remise en état d'un élément cylindrique d'une imprimante ayant une unité de fusion qui est chauffée de l'extérieur par un rouleau de chauffage. L'appareil comprend l'utilisation d'un élément cylindrique (110) ayant une surface externe d'une matière thermoplastique fluorée haute température. Lorsqu'il est déterminé que la surface externe a besoin d'une remise en état, l'unité de fusion est enlevée de l'imprimante, et l'élément cylindrique est monté à la place de l'unité de fusion. L'élément cylindrique est amené à tourner à une vitesse d'au moins 1 tpm tout en venant en prise avec la surface externe de l'unité de fusion pendant que le rouleau de surface, normalement utilisé pour chauffer l'unité de fusion, est à une pression d'au moins 5 psi à une température d'au moins 10°C au-dessous de la température de fusion de la matière thermoplastique fluorée pendant un laps de temps suffisant pour remettre en état la surface externe de l'élément cylindrique.
