Title: DEVELOPING DEVICE, CLEANING DEVICE, AND LIQUID DEVELOPER DEVICE
Abstract:
Provided is a developing device, comprising: a developer carrier (41) that rotates while carrying a liquid developer on a carrying surface (41b); and an end restricting member (46) that restricts the liquid developer carried on the carrying surface (41b) from moving to outside of the carrying surface (41b). The contact angle between the end restricting member (46) and the liquid developer is set to be greater than the contact angle between the carrying surface (41b) of the developer carrier (41) and the liquid developer. Due to this configuration, a large amount of liquid developer is prevented from attaching to the vicinity of an end (41c) of the carrying surface (41b) when the developer carrier (41) has separated from the end restricting member (46).
