Title: OPTICAL SCANNING DEVICE AND IMAGE FORMING APPARATUS HAVING OPTICAL SCANNING DEVICE
Abstract:
Provided is an optical scanning device that includes: a housing (31) that has a box shape with a bottom and is openable on the ceiling side; a rotary polygon mirror (35) which is housed in the housing (31), and performs deflection-scanning of a light beam from a light source; a drive motor (41) which is fixed to a bottom wall part of the housing (31) and drives the rotary polygon mirror (35); and a lid member (37) which closes the ceiling side portion of the housing (31), and which is fixed to the housing (31) via a fixing mechanism (311), wherein the fixing mechanism (311) is disposed adjacent to a minimum separation part (B), in a lateral wall part of the housing (31), at which the distance from the rotary polygon mirror (35) is minimum.
