On Fig illustrates the structure of the drive section of the winding intended for winding sealer toner cartridge 9 filing. On Fig shows a front view section of the winding. On Fig shows a perspective view of the valve 35 and the parts adjacent to the flap 35.

On the lower surface is t 9e section 33 of the placement of the developer provided a fixed T-shaped housing 44. In the upper part of the T-shaped housing 44 has a hole 44d T-shaped casing, and its lower end is provided with a connecting hole 44a T-shaped container. Developer at plot 33 placement of the developer supplied to the cartridge 7 of the base color (section 16 for accommodation of the developer) through the hole 44d and a connecting hole 44a. Between the hole 44d and the connecting hole 44a includes a section 44b of the insertion flap side of the source. Function section 44b of the insert is to be kept with the possibility of rotation of the cylindrical section 35a of the valve 35.

Here, the bottom surface means a surface or side directed downward when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device.

The flap 35 is provided with a connecting section 35c, protruding from the side edge of the cylindrical section 35a (area of base) outward in the axial direction of the cylindrical section. The flap 35 is provided a connecting hole 35b through the outer contour of the cylindrical section 35a in diametrically opposite positions, respectively. More specifically, the connecting holes 35b are located opposite the openings 34 and opposite the connecting holes 44a relative to the direction crossing with the axial direction. The cylindrical section 35a is installed on the site 44b insertion of the valve so that the external surface of the cylindrical section 35a is in contact with the inner surface 44b of the insertion flap. When you flap 35 can rotate relative to section 33 of the placement of the developer.

On the open side of the site 44b insert the valve includes a cap 39 of the site of insertion of the valve side of the source. The cap 39 is provided by the sections 39b shoulder on the opposite terminal parts, respectively. In each section 39b of the shoulder there is a section 39c of the hole, which engages with the retaining section 44c in the form of teeth provided on the T-shaped body 44. In this implementation, the cap 39 is secured to T-shaped body 44. And thus prevents separation of the flaps 35 and T-shaped housing 44.

The cap 39 is formed a hole 39a. The connecting section 35c of the flap 35 extends through hole 39a.

At the free end of the connecting section 35 protruding from the cap 39 fixed mobile element (moving the plot side of the source) 32 side of the source, intended for interrelated movement of the valve 35. On the movable element 32 is provided, the end protrusion 32a, which is installed into the end recess 35c1 formed on the free terminal surface of the valve 35. The protrusion 32a is pressed into the recess 35c1. In this implementation the movable element 32 is attached to the valve 35. The movable element 32 rotates as a single piece with the flap 35. The other is the capture, flap 35 is rotated in conjunction with rotation of the rolling element 32.

The movable element 32 includes protrusions 32b (32b1, 32b2, 32b3, 32b4) and grooves 32c (32c1, 32c2, 32c3, 32c4), which are arranged alternately (Fig).

The following is a description of how the construction and operation of valves (section damper side of the source) and related items.

Initially, the valve 35 is inserted into the section 44b insert valve T-shaped housing 44. The hole section 44b of the insertion flap is closed by a cap 39. Then plot holes 39c gear with section 44c of the holder of a T-shaped housing 44. In this implementation, the cap 39 is fixed on the T-shaped body 44. After this limit protrusion 32a of the rolling element 32 are pressed into the end recess 35c1 valve 35 side of the source. Then T-shaped housing 44 mounted on the section 33 of the placement of the developer (not shown) with screws or the like.

7, in position (a) presents a view in section of the valve and associated elements in the position in which the cartridge 9 feed the developer cartridge 7 primary color set or inserted into the device 100 form the image.

As shown in Fig.7, at position (a)when installing the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 supply of the developer, the hole 34 of the feed hole 44d and a connecting hole 44a are mounted opposite the connection is a corresponding hole 35b of the valve side of the source. So there is the possibility of filing source developer from the cartridge 9 submission to the cartridge 7 of the base color. In this position, the screw 38 (2)provided above the opening 34 and the hole 44d, rotate. As a result, the developer is served in the hole 34. Then the developer is supplied from the holes 34 of the feed hole 16a of the reception.

Thus, in the position shown in Fig.7. at position (a), the valve 35 is in position permitted the filing of the developer with an open hole 34.

7 in position (b) presents a view in section of the valve and associated elements in the position in which one of the cartridge 9 feed the developer cartridge 7 primary colors extracted from the primary node device 100a form the image.

In the position shown in Fig.7, at position (b) valve 35 is in position prohibited the filing of the developer closes the aperture 34.

In this position, the portion of the cylindrical section 35a of the valve 35, in addition to holes 35d (a site that does not have a connecting hole 35b), is located opposite the openings 34 of the feed holes 44d and a binder holes 44a.

When the cartridge 9 filing or cartridge 7 primary colors extracted from the primary host 100a device, the movable element 32 side of the source affects the force from the rolling element 62 of the reception side (moving the plot side p is IEMA) of the cartridge 7 primary colors, which will be described below, and he moves, more specifically, is rotated, in this embodiment. Flap 35 is rotated 90° from the position permitted the filing of the developer (7, item (a)) in the position of prohibited feed the developer in any of the directions indicated by the arrows B and C (7, item (b)). The opening 44d or a connecting hole 44a of the cartridge 9 filing is no longer installed opposite the connecting holes 35b. When you hole 44d is closed so that the supply of developer in the cartridge 7 primary color stops.

In other words, the operation of opening and closing of the valve cartridge 9 filing is performed by rotation of the valve 35 by 90°.

Between section 33 of the placement of the developer and the T-shaped housing 44 is provided with T-shaped seal 120 toner (Fig). One longitudinal end 120a of the seal 120 of the toner is fixed on the hole 34 serves for sealing the openings 34 of the feed. The other end 120b of the T-shaped seal 120 of the toner is fixed on the round section 121a of the column shaft 121 of the winding. On the shaft 121 of the winding includes a section 121b of the reception power of the actuator, which rotates as a single item with a round section 121a of the column.

Section 121b of the reception power of the drive contains a T-shaped connection 152 receiving drive power, designed for receiving drive power from the connection 151 main uz is a, provided in the primary host 100a device, when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device. Impact force of the drive section 152a gear connection 152 through the transmission gear, which includes an intermediate gear 153, 154, Fig.

Thus, in the case of installing a new (unused) cartridge 9 supply hole 34 of the feed can be sealed with a sealant 120 toner. When the hole 34 of submission of sealed with a sealant 120 toner on the shaft 121 of the winding affects the drive power from the primary node to section 121b of the reception power of the drive torque in the direction of arrow D, in the position in which the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device (Fig).

In this implementation the winding shaft 121 spool seal 120 toner to open the hole 34 of the feed. When the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device after the seal 120 toner has been removed, the hole 34 of the feeder is closed by the valve 35.

The primary site 100a device determines whether the cartridge 9 filing new on the basis of information stored in a storage device (not shown)provided in the cartridge 9 filing.

In this embodiment, the cartridge 9 supply of the developer provided by valve 35 side of the source. Therefore, it is not always necessary and the use sealer toner, and the loss of the developer through the opening 34 of the feed can still be prevented. However, in the above-described construction, which uses the toner seal, the loss of the developer can be reliably prevented during, for example, transportation of the cartridge feed of the developer.

In this embodiment, the flap 35 of the source and the movable element 32 side of the source are not common or individual items. However, in alternative constructions, the cap 39 is not used, and, as shown in Fig, the valve 95 side of the source (section damper side of the source) has a section 95e prevent separation, for example, latch type. When you flap 95 engages in the hole 96e of the T-shaped body 96 that prevents separation. Therefore, the valve 95 and a moving plot 95f hand feeding can be performed as a single item.

Valve 95 hand feed the example shown in Fig, are as described above, the valve 35 side feeder, and the T-shaped body 96 corresponds to the T-shaped housing 44, and also moving the plot 95f hand feed corresponds to the rolling element 32 side of the source. A connecting hole 95b corresponds to the connecting hole 35b, and section 95d without holes corresponds to section 35d without holes. Svyazuyuschee 96a T-shaped container corresponds to the connecting hole 44a T-shaped container, and section 96b of the insertion flap side of the source corresponds to section 44b of the insertion flap side of the source, and, in addition, the hole 96d of the T-shaped housing corresponds to the hole 44d of the T-shaped body.

The cartridge 9 feeder additionally comprises the following structure.

More specifically, it contains the first element 31b gearing, fixed in position after the opening 34 of the feed (the movable element 32 side of the source relative to the direction of advance, in which the cartridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary site 100A device. When the cartridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary site 100A device, the first element 31b gearing moves the element 68 of regulation, which will be described below, before the valve 35, the opening hole 34 of the feed. This enables the operation of the control element 68 of regulation. This enables the movement of the moving element 62 side of the reception. In turn, he is engaged with the first work areas 62b1, 62b3 rolling element 62 side of the reception of rotation of the rolling element 62. He moves the damper 65 hand taking out a prohibited taking of the developer in the position of authorized admission of the developer.

In addition, the cartridge 9 supply of the developer contains the second element 31A of the gear is fixed in position POS is f holes 34 of the feed (the movable element 32 side of the source relative to the direction of extraction, in which the cartridge 9 supply of the developer removed from the primary node device 100. When the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node device 100, the second element 31A gearing is introduced into contact with the element 68 of the regulation of movement (rotation) of the element 68 of the regulation, after the valve 35 closes the opening 34 of the feed. Thus released, the operation of the throttling element 68 of regulation. This enables the movement of the moving element 62. He then engages with a work area side of the reception provided in a position different from the position of the work area side of the reception of the rolling element 62 side of the reception. Thus, the valve 65 is moved out of the permitted acceptance of the developer in the position of a prohibited taking of the developer.

In the position in which the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device, the movable element 32 side of the source continues in the direction perpendicular to the bottom side (lower surface) 9e cartridge 9 filing. The movable element 32 rotates around a horizontal axis parallel to the bottom surface 9e.

Valve 35 side of the source is made in the form of a rotating cylinder, which rotates around a horizontal axis parallel to the bottom surface 9e of the cartridge 9 filing.

Qi is indecence hole, continuing along the longitudinal direction of the cylindrical valve 35 side of the source, is located opposite the openings 34 of the supply of the developer. Thus the hole 34 of the supply of the developer opens. The cylindrical section, in addition to the cylindrical hole, closes the opening 34 of the feed when it is installed in front of the hole 16a of the reception.

The movable element 32 side of the source contains the work area side of the source in the form of protrusions (32b1, 32b2, 32b3, 32b4), which engage with the protrusions 62b1, 62b3 (the first work area side of the reception), and a forked projections 62b2, 62b4 (second work area side of the reception), which affect the force of rotation. When you flap 35 side of the source rotates.

[Mechanism of the valve cartridge base color]

The mechanism of the valve cartridge 7 main colors on this version of the implementation will be described with reference to figures 9, 10, 18, 24 and 25.

Figure 9 shows a perspective view with exploded view of the components of the valve cartridge 7 of the base color and the associated elements. Figure 10 shows a front view illustrating a connection state between the movable element 62 side of the intake and valve 65 side of the reception area of the flap side intake) (rotating element). On Fig shows a front view of the winding plot that is designed for winding upl is titele toner cartridge main color. On Fig presents a perspective view of the valve cartridge 7 of the base color and the associated elements. On Fig illustrates the structure of the drive section of the winding.

As shown in Fig.9, the mechanism of the valve cartridge 7 of the base color has a design similar to the design of the mechanism of the valve cartridge 9 filing. The housing 45 of the device manifestations corresponds to the T-shaped housing 44. Hole 45d of the device manifestations corresponds to the hole 44d of the T-shaped housing. A connecting hole 45a of the container manifestations corresponds to the connecting hole 44a T-shaped container. Section 45b of the insertion flap manifestations corresponds to section 44b of the insertion flap side of the source. Valve 65 side of the reception corresponds to the valve 35 side of the source. The cylindrical section 65a corresponds to the cylindrical section 35a; the connecting section 65c corresponds to the connecting section 35c; a connecting hole (hole) 65b corresponds to the connecting hole 35b; and section 65d without holes corresponds to section 35d without holes. The cap 69 corresponds to the cap 39; section 69b of the shoulder corresponds to section 39b of the shoulder; section 69c of the hole corresponds to section 39c of the hole; the hole 69a corresponds to the hole 39a; and terminal notch 65c1 corresponds to the target excavation 35c1. Given these correspondences op is a description of the relevant sections of the cartridge main colors will be omitted for simplicity.

Description will be given in respect of the rolling element 62 side of the reception.

As shown in figure 10, the function of the rolling element 62 mounted on the free end of the flap 65 is to shift valve 65. In other words, the valve 65 is interconnected with the movement (rotation) of the rolling element 62. On the movable element 62 provided by the protrusions 62b (62b1, 62b2, 62b3, 62b4) and grooves 62c (62cl, 62c2, 62c3, 62c4), intended for application of force of rotation to the cartridge 9 filing with the operations of installing and removing the cartridge 7 main colors in the primary host 100a device. The protrusion 62b is located along the direction of rotational movement of the moving element 62. On the ledge 62b2, in its Central area, is provided by the notch 62d1 so that it is forked protrusion. In addition, the Central section of the ledge 62b4 provided by the notch 62d2 so that it is forked protrusion. The tabs 62b2, 62b4 engage with the protrusions 32b (32b1, 32b2, 32b3, 32b4) of the rolling element 32. The tabs 62b1-62b4 make up the work area side of the reception. More specifically, the protrusions 62b1, 62b3 be the first work area side, and the tabs 62b2, 62b4 are the second work area side of the reception. Excavation 62d1, 62d2 provided to prevent mutual interference between the protrusion 32b and ledges 62b2, 62b4. Figure 10 of the lip and 62b2 62b4 surrounded by dotted what enemy.

On a plot of 16 accommodation developer also provides the element 68 of regulation designed to control the rotation of the rolling element 62. Element 68 regulation is made slidable in the vertical direction (the direction of arrow E) using sections 71a, 72a of the wave guide rails 71, 72 provided in section 16 of the placement of the developer. Element 68 regulation is normally pressed upward by the force of a spring force (elastic) spring, 70 compression provided between the section 16 of the placement of the developer and element 68 of regulation. As shown in figure 10, when the element 68 regulation is in the initial position (the regulation), the recess 68a regulation consistently engages with the protrusions 62b (62b1, 62b2, 62b3, 62b4) of the rolling element 62. This implementation is regulated by the rotation of the rolling element 62. In other words, due to the engagement between the protrusion 62b and the recess 68a rotation of the rolling element 62 is regulated or prevented.

On the upper surface of the housing 45 is provided with a sealing element 67 having an aperture 67a corresponding to the connecting hole 45a.

Next will be described the method of Assembly and operation of the valve cartridge 7 of the base color and the associated elements.

At the beginning of the damper 65 is inserted into teaching the current 45b insertion of the valve housing 45. Hole land 45b insert the valve is closed by a cap 69. Then section 69c of the hole of the cap 69 engages with the retaining section 45c of the housing 45. Thus, the valve 65 is fixed on the housing 45. Then the target projection 62a of the rolling element 62 are pressed into the notch target 65c1 valve 65. Element 68 regulation engages with sections 71a, 72a of the wave guide rails 71, 72 outside section 16 for accommodation of the developer. After that, between the element 68 of the regulation and section 16 of the placement of the developer install the spring 70. Then sealing element 67 mounted on the side of the connecting holes 45a of the housing 45. The housing 45 of the device manifestations recorded at site 16 host developer (not shown) by screws or the like.

The valve 65 is opened and closed as described above, the valve 35. At each 90° rotation of the valve 65, the parties receiving the cartridge 7 primary colors in turn can receive the developer from the cartridge 9 supply of the developer (position allowed admission developer, 7, in position (c), and can't take the developer (position-Smoking reception developer, 7, in position (d)).

Thus, the hole 16a of the reception is opened and closed during the rotation of the valve 65 in conjunction with the 90° rotation of the rolling element 62 side of the reception.

Between section 16 R is smesheniya developer and the housing 45 of the device manifestations have a seal 130 toner D (Fig). One longitudinal end 130A of the seal 130 toner D is fixed to the section 16 of the placement of the developer and seals the hole 16A of the reception. The other end of the seal 130b toner D is fixed on a circular plot a column shaft 131 winding. It also includes a section 131b of the reception power of the actuator into rotation, which rotates together with the round section a column.

As shown in Fig in position when the cartridge 7 primary color set in the primary host 100A device, the connection 156 receiving drive power for the manifestation receives drive power from the connection 155 primary node to perform the operation manifestations, provided in the main unit 100. A section 131b receiving drive power applied force of the drive through the transmission gear, which includes idler gears 157, 158, 159 of the plot gears a connection 156.

In this embodiment, when the cartridge 7 of the base color is a new (unused), hole 16A of the technique can be sealed with the above-described seal 130 toner. When the hole 16A receiving sealed with a sealant 130 toner when the cartridge 7 primary color set in the primary site 100A device to the shaft of the winding 131 is applied drive power from the primary node through a section 131b of the reception power of the drive.

The primary site 100A device determines a Ki is whether the cartridge 7 main color is new or not, detektywa information stored in a storage device (not shown)provided in the cartridge 7 main color.

Then the shaft 131 of the winding spool seal 130 toner until you open the hole 16a of the reception. When the cartridge 7 main color is extracted from the primary node device 100a, the hole 16a of the reception is closed by a valve 65.

In the cartridge main colors are also provided by the valve 65 side of the reception, as well as in the cartridge feed of the developer. Therefore, the loss of the developer from the opening reception of the developer 16a can be sufficiently prevented, even if the toner seal is not used. However, in the design, which uses the above-described toner seal, possible loss of developer during transportation of the cartridge base color can be reliably prevented.

In this embodiment, the valve 65 of the reception side and the movable element 62 side of the reception are not common or individual items. However, in an alternative construction, as shown in Fig, the cap 69 is not used, but the valve 97 side of the reception area of the valve side of the reception), a section 97e prevent separation, for example, latch type, and the valve 97 engages in the hole 98e housing 98 device manifestations, preventing separation. With this in the implementation valve 97 and a moving section 97f side of the reception can be performed as a single item.

On Fig flap 97 described above, the valve 65; a movable element 97f corresponds to the rolling element 62; and a housing 98 device manifestations corresponds to the case 45 of the device manifestations. A connecting hole 97b corresponds to the connecting hole 65b; and section 97d without holes corresponds to the section 65d without holes. A connecting hole 98a of the container manifestations corresponds to the connecting hole 45a of the container manifestations; section 98b of the insertion flap manifestations corresponds to section 45b of the insertion flap manifestations; and the hole 98d of the device manifestations corresponds to the hole 45d of the device manifestations. Therefore, a detailed description of these elements will be omitted for simplicity.

[The design of the drive section of the damper]

Next, with reference to 11 and 12 will describe the operations of opening and closing of the valve 35 and the valve 65 during the operations of installing and removing the cartridge 9 feed and cartridge 7 main color.

(Case of installation of the cartridge feeder developer)

Next, with reference to 11 will be described the case where the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary site 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 of the base color is already installed in the primary host 100a device. For simplicity of illustration, the section 33 of the placement of the developer and site 16 R is smesheniya developer not shown figure 11. Valve 44, a connecting hole 45b, the valve 65, the connecting hole 65b, plot 31a1 engagement of the second element 31a engagement and plot 31b1 engagement of the first element 31b gearing indicated by broken lines.

Before installing the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device hole 44d and a connecting hole 44a of the T-shaped housing set so that they are not positioned opposite the connecting holes 35b of the valve 35 side of the source (the state shown in item (b) (7) (Statute prohibited the reception of the developer). Therefore, the supply of developer in the cartridge 7 primary colors is prevented (the closed state).

When the cartridge 7 primary color set in the primary site 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 9 filing is not installed on the primary site 100a device, the movable element 62 does not influence any power. Therefore, the valve 65 is not rotating. For this reason, the cartridge 7 of the base color remains in the closed position, which prevents the reception of the developer.

Notch 68a regulatory element 68 regulation and protrusions 62b (62b1 or 62b3) of the rolling element 62 are in engagement with each other. Therefore, supported the regulation of the rolling element 62 (rotation (movement) can be avoided).

The operator inserts the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device, in thatduring as directed sections 42a, 42b mounted on the rails 101a, 101b of the primary node (in the direction indicated by the arrow at position (k) figure 11).

When the cartridge 9 filing promoted to the position shown in position (j) figure 11 plot 31a1 engagement of the second element 31a gearing comes into contact with a plot 68b1 inclined surface of the guide surface 68b of the element 68 of the regulation.

Upon further advancement of the cartridge 9 filing, as shown at position (i) figure 11 plot 68b1 inclined surface moves the first element 31a1 gearing. Therefore, the element 68 regulation, pressed in the upper position regulation by elastic force of the pressure spring 70 moves downward, overcoming the force of elasticity, section 16 of the placement of the developer in the direction indicated by arrow H in position (i) figure 11 (a provision permitting the movement (position, allowing rotation)).

When the plot 31a1 engagement of the cartridge 9 supply reaches the area of flat surface 68b2 guide surface 68b, the engagement between the recess 68a regulatory element 68 regulation and protrusion 62b (62b1 or 62b3 figure 10) is disconnected. In the movable element 62 is allowed to revolve (item (h) figure 11).

After that, the plot 31a1 gear slips on the area of flat surface 68b2 element 68 of regulation. And the plot 31a1 gear engages the protrusion 62b (62b1 or 62b3) of the rolling element 62 for rotation of the rolling element 62 in a counterclockwise direction (position (g) figure 11). During the rotation of the rolling element 62, the valve 65 hand laid down on it, also rotates in the counterclockwise direction together with the movable element 62. In the connecting hole 65b of the valve 65 is combined with a hole 45d of the device manifestations and the connecting hole 45a. More specifically, the valve 65 is now set to allowed admission developer (position (c) figure 7). The recess 62c (62cl or 62c3 figure 10) is provided for installation in her plot 31a1 engagement when the plot 31a1 gear engages with the protrusion 62b (62b1 or 62b3).

When the cartridge 9 filing is moved into position in which the engagement between the plot 31a1 gearing and movable element 62 is disconnected, the valve 65 is fully rotated 90°. Then the rotation of the damper 65 is stopped. At this time, the connecting hole 65b occupies a position opposite the openings 16a reception (item (c) figure 7). Thus, there is established an open position that permits the reception of the developer from the cartridge 9 filing (item (f) of figure 11).

As shown in items (e) (d) figure 11, upon further advancement of the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device area 68b3 inclined surface is directed plot 31a1 gearing. Therefore, the element 68 regulation moves up in position control (in the direction V. the tree G in position (e) on 11) with respect to section 16 of the placement of the developer under the action of the elastic force (the spring force) of the spring 70.

Plot 31a1 engagement of the cartridge 9 supply is disconnected from the plot 68b3 inclined surface of the guide surface 68b. The protrusion 62b (62b2 or 62b4 figure 10) is engaged with the notch 68a regulatory element 68 of regulation. The movable element 62 restores the position of the regulation, which prevents the rotation (position (c) figure 11).

The cartridge 9 feed advance further in the primary site 100a device. This forked protrusion 62b (62b2 or 62b4 figure 10) of the rolling element 62 engages with the protrusion 32b (32b1 or 32b3 on Fig) and the notch 32c (32c1 or 32c3 on Fig) of the rolling element 32. At this time, the rotation of the rolling element 62 is regulated or prevented by element 68 of regulation. Therefore, the movable element 32 rotates in the counterclockwise direction (the direction of arrow I in position (c) figure 11) under the force received from the rolling element 62 in the input movement of the cartridge 9 filing. During the rotation of the rolling element 32 valve 35 mounted thereon also rotates in the counterclockwise direction. A connecting hole 35b of the valve 35 side of the source is included in the message transmission fluid (the developer can flow through it) with a hole 44d of the casing and the connecting hole 44a (position (c)-(b) figure 11). In other words, the flap 35 of the cartridge 9 filing is now in the floor of the terms permitted the filing of the developer.

Design and operation of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 filing can be briefly described as follows. Besides, there will be described the structure of the installation position relative to the primary node 100a.

The cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 filing can be removable mounted in the primary host 100a device independently from each other.

The cartridge 7 primary colors includes the photosensitive drum 1 and the developing roller 17, which is designed for the manifestation of the electrostatic latent image formed on the photosensitive drum 1, with the use of the developer. The cartridge 7 primary colors includes the valve 65 side of the reception moving between the position of the permitted acceptance of the developer in order to open the opening reception of the developer 16a to receive the developer, and the regulations prohibited the reception of the developer in order to close the opening 16a of the reception. The cartridge 7 primary colors includes a movable element 62 side of the reception, which made moving in conjunction with the flap 65 and which includes work areas and 62b2 62b4 side of reception, which are installed in working position, when the valve 65 is in the position of authorized admission of the developer. The cartridge 7 primary colors includes element 68 of the regulation, which is used to control the movement of the moving element 62, when working land 62b2 or 62b4 are in the working position (position (e) figure 11). Here, the working position is a position in which the working section 62b2 or 62b4 is engaged with the protrusion 32b of the rolling element 32 side of the source, and the movable element 32 side of the source is moved (rotated) due to the relative movement between the movable element 32 side of the source and the movable element 62 side of the reception. In this embodiment, the work area 62b2 or 62b4 is in its highest position, in the working position ((a)-(e)).

The cartridge 9 filing includes section 33 of the placement of the developer side of the source, designed to accommodate the developer. The cartridge 9 filing includes a hole 44d of the T-shaped hull designed to supply the developer from section 33 of the placement of the developer in the cartridge 7 of the base color through the hole 16a, and the valve 35 side of the source is moved between the position resolution of the filing of the toner, in which a hole 44d of the T-shaped housing and a connecting hole 44a communicated with each other, and the regulations prohibited the filing of the developer, in which the hole 44d of the T-shaped housing and a connecting hole 44a are closed. The cartridge 9 supply of the developer includes a movable element 32 having a protrusion 32b, which can be hooked with a slave who Chim plot 62b2 in the state of regulation in the working position. When the cartridge 9 filing promote in the primary site 100a device, the movable element 32 is interconnected to move the valve 35 to the position of preventing the supply of toner to the position resolution of the supply of toner when the work area 62b2, or 62b4 engages a lug 32b (position (d)-(a) (figure 11).

Upon further advancement of the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device install section 40 of the cartridge 9 submission rests on the support shaft 103 of the primary node is provided in the primary host 100a device in position (b) on Fig). Set the section 40 is provided at the leading side of the target surface of the cartridge 9 supply relative to the direction input of the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device. In this position the operation of the 90° rotation of the valve 35 ends, resulting in the installation of the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device ends. At this time, the rotation of the valve 65 hand feed stops. And a connecting hole 65b mounted in such position that it is located opposite the holes 45d of the T-shaped housing and the connecting holes 45a (item (c) 7) (position permitted the filing of the developer). The hole 34 of the supply of the developer is now open, and the developer can be fed into the cartridge 7 of the base color (item (a) of figure 11).

When the cartridge 9 is introduced into the primary site 100a device is tion in position, in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device, the movable element 62 of the side intake valve 65 side and reception element 68 regulation perform the following operations.

The function of the rolling element 62 is interconnected to move the valve 65 between the position of the permitted acceptance of the developer and the regulations prohibited the reception of the developer. The movable element 62 includes a work area side of the receiving (second work area side of the intake) (forked projections and 62b2 62b4), which is in the working position, when the valve 65 is set to enabled reception of the developer. Element 68 regulation regulates the movement (rotation) of the rolling element 62 in a state in which the specified work area side of the reception is in the working position.

As described above, the movable element 32 of the cartridge 9 has the following structure. When the cartridge 9 is introduced into the primary site 100a device, the movable element 32 is moved (rotated) by engagement with a work area of the reception side (hanging 62b2, 62b4) of the rolling element 62, regulated or restricted element 68 regulation, installed into the operating position. The movable element 32 is interconnected moves the flap 35 of the regulations prohibited the filing of the developer in the position of aresenal supply of the developer. In the valve 35 opens the hole 34 of the feed.

Here, in this embodiment, the work area side of the intake is installed in a working position, when the valve 65 is set to enabled reception of the developer. The movable element 32 is moved from engagement with a work area of the reception side (hanging 62b2, 62b4) to move the valve 35 of the regulations prohibited the filing of the developer in the position permitted the filing of the developer. Therefore, when the cartridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary site 100A device, the hole 34 of the feed opens only when the valve 65 is set to the position permitted the filing of the developer, that is, only when the hole 16A of the reception is open. Therefore, it is possible to avoid a situation in which the hole 34 submission of offers in spite of the fact that the hole 16A of the reception closed. Thus, loss of the developer through the opening 34 of the feed can be prevented.

In accordance with this alternative implementation, when the cartridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary site 100A device, the hole 34 of the feed will never be opened until the cartridge 7 of the base color will not be installed in the primary site 100A device.

As described above, the cartridge 9 filing promote in the primary site 100A device, moving it along the rails 101a, 101b main site guide the main site) to order aamah sections 42A, 42b. Preferably, the force required for input was low, while the provided position of the cartridge 9 filing. With this in mind, there is a gap greater than the gap between the primary node, the support shaft 103 and established by section 40.

Directed section 42b, which is located closer to the rolling element 32, as can be seen in the direction of the cross section (left side relative to the direction in which the considered view of figure 2), are referred to. To this end, the rail 101b primary node performs the function of regulating the vertical deflection and deviation to the left of the cartridge 9 filing. Rail 101a primary node adjusts the deviation down deviation to the right of the cartridge 9 supply of the developer.

The cartridge 9 filing and rail 101 of the primary node will be described in detail below. As shown in position (b) figure 2 directed section 42b includes adjustable side plot 42b3, upper lateral regulated plot 42b1 and lower regulated plot 42b2. When the cartridge 9 supply of developer advance in the primary site 100a device, the adjustable section 42b3, regulated plot 42b1 and regulated plot 42b2 regulate rail 101b of the primary node is provided in the primary host 100a device. The upward movement of the regulated area 42b1 is prevented by regulatory area 101b1 upper surface and rail 101b of the primary node. Lower regulated plot 42b2 is adjusted downward by the regulatory area 101b2 the bottom surface of the rail 101b of the primary node. Similarly, side adjustable section 42b3 is regulated by the movement towards regulatory area 101b3 side surface of the rail 101b of the primary node. When the movable element 32 is moved, being in engagement with the movable element 62, the upward movement of the regulated area 42b1 is prevented by regulatory area 101b1. Therefore, the movable element 32 can be moved with a reliable engagement with the movable element 62. This ensures reliable operations of opening and closing of the valve 35 side of the source and the valve 65 side of the reception.

Here is directed section 42b is mounted so that it directs the rail 101b of the main node, at least during the execution of the operations of the valve 35 side of the source, the valve 65 side of the receiving element 68 of regulation shown in positions (k)-(a) figure 11.

Therefore, as shown in positions (k)-(a)during operations of the elements of the valve (35, 65) and element 68 regulation directed section 42b of the cartridge 9 supply of the developer is sent by rail 101b primary node relative to the direction of view presented in figure 2 (the direction of the cross section). Thus, the relative ratio of Polo the events between the cartridge 9 feed the developer cartridge 7 of the base color can be maintained relative to the direction of the cross section.

(Case when extract the cartridge feeder developer)

When the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 supply of the developer is installed in the primary host 100a device performs the operation opposite to that described above. More specifically, the operations are performed in order (a)-(b)-(c)-(d)-(e)-(f)-(g)-(h)-(i)-(j)-(k). During these stages operate the movable element 32 side of the source, the valve 35 side of the source element 68 of the regulation, the movable element 62 side of the intake and valve 65 side of the reception.

The cartridge 9 filing includes section 33 of the placement of the developer, designed to accommodate the developer. The cartridge 9 filing includes the valve 35 side of the source, moving between the position permitted the filing of the developer in order to open the hole 34 of the supply of the developer to supply the developer from section 33 of the placement of the developer in the cartridge 7 of the base color through the hole receiving the developer 16a, and the regulations prohibited the supply of the developer to close the opening 34 of the supply of the developer. The cartridge 9 supply of the developer includes a movable element 32 side of the source (moving the plot side of the source), with the protrusion 32b, gear with a work area 62b2 or 62b4 regulated or ogran the Chan so, what is in the working position. The movable element 32 is moved (rotated) in the engagement of the work area 62b2 with the tab 32b when the movement of the cartridge 9 filing at the time it is removed from the primary node 100a device for interrelated movement of the valve 35 side of the source of the provisions permitted the filing of the developer in the position of prohibited feed developer (position (a)to(e) figure 11).

Therefore, once the cartridge 9 filing is ejected, the valve 65 of the cartridge 7 of the main colors remains installed in the primary host 100a devices interconnected in a closed position by operation of the extraction cartridge 9 feed from the primary host 100a device.

For this reason, even if the cartridge 7 primary colors extracted in the position in which the cartridge 9 filing is not installed on the primary node device 100a, the valve 65 holes 16a of the reception of the cartridge 7 of the main colors remains closed. Thus, even if only the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which both cartridges cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 submission - installed in the primary host 100a device, the hole 16a of the valve 65 is supported securely closed.

When the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 main color is made in the primary host 100a device, the operations performed movable element 62, the valve element 65 and 68 of regulation will be described below.

First moves the movable element 62 for interrelated movement of the valve 65 to the side of reception between the position of the permitted acceptance of the developer and the regulations prohibited the reception of the developer. The movable element 62 includes a work area side of the receiving (second work area side of the intake) (projections and 62b2 62b4), which is in the working position, when the valve 65 is set to enabled reception of the developer. Element 68 regulation regulates the movement of the moving element 62 when the work area (hanging 62b2 or 62b4) is in the working position.

As described above, when the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device, the movable element 32 of the cartridge 9 submission move as a result of engagement with a work area of the reception side (hanging 62b2 or 62b4) of the rolling element 62, which is regulated or limited in working position element 68 of regulation. And the movable element 32 is interconnected moves the flap 35 of the provisions permitted the filing of the developer in the position of prohibited feed of the developer.

Thus, in accordance with this alternative implementation of the present invention, when the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a condition the device, the movable element 32 is moved (rotated) by engagement with a work area side of the receiving (second work area side of the intake) (hanging 62b2 or 62b4) of the rolling element 62, which is regulated or limited in working position element 68 of regulation. Therefore, in accordance with this alternative implementation, when the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node device 100a, the hole 16a of the reception is closed after closes the opening 34 of the feed. Thus, when the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node device 100a, the hole 34 of the feed is never closed after the opening 16a of the reception will be closed. Therefore, possible loss of developer through the opening 34 of the feed can be prevented. When the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device or removed from the primary node 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device, the movable element 62, the valve element 65 and 68 of regulation perform the following operations.

First of all, the movable element 62 includes a first work area 62b1 or 62b3 hand technique, which is in the working position, when the valve 65 takes the position of a prohibited taking of the developer, the second work area 62b2 or 62b4 side of the reception, which is located in the working position, when the valve 65, the parties will accept the position allowed reception of the developer.

Element 68 regulation regulates the rotation of the rolling element 62 when the first work area 62b1 or 62b3 or the second work area 62b2 or 62b4 is moved into position.

When the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary site 100A device or removed from the primary node 100A device in the position in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100A device, element 31A of the gear (the second element of the mesh), the movable element 32 side of the source and the valve 35 side source perform the following operations.

Initially, when the cartridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary site 100A device, element 31A of the gear (the second element of the gearing) comes in contact with the element 68 of regulation, which regulates the rotation of the rolling element 62 of the first working section 62b1 or 62b3 installed in operating position before the valve 35 source opens the hole 34 of the feed. Element 31A of the gear moves the element 68 of regulation down, overcoming the force of elasticity of the spring 70. As a result, he releases the operation of the control element 68 of regulation. Thus, the element 31A gearing provides the possibility of movement of the moving element 62. Then the element 31A gearing concatenates the I with the first work area 62b1 or 62b3 for rotation of the rolling element 62, interconnected with which the shutter 65 is moved from position a prohibited taking of the developer in the position of authorized admission of the developer. Thus, the hole 16A of the admission offer.

In addition, when the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100A device, element 31A gearing comes into contact with the element 68 of regulation, which adjusts (reduces) the rotation of the rolling element 62 of the second working section 62b2 or 62b4 side of the receiving set in the working position, and moves the element 68 of regulation down, overcoming the force of elasticity, after the valve 35 side of the source will close the hole 34 of the feed. The result is released, the operation of the control element 68 of regulation. Thus, the element 31A gearing provides the possibility of movement of the moving element 62.

Then the element 32A gearing rotates the flap 35 of the provisions permitted the reception of the developer in the position of a prohibited taking of the developer in conjunction with the rotation of the rolling element 62 for engagement with the second work area 62b2 or 62b4. Thus, the hole 16A of the reception is closed.

Here, the element 31A of the gear (the second element of the mesh) is stably set in position after the opening 34 of the feed (the movable element 32 side of the source relative to the direction in which the artridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary site 100A device.

When the cartridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary site 100A device, the movable element 32 is rotated in the engagement with the movable element 62, which is governed by the element 68 regulation that restricts the second work area 62b2 or 62b4 in the working position after the valve 65 side of the reception opens the hole 16a of the reception. The movable element 32 side of the source moves the valve 35 side of the source of provisions prohibited the filing of the developer in the position permitted the filing of the developer in connection with its rotation. Thus, the hole 34 submission of offers.

When the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device, the movable element 32 is rotated in the engagement with the movable element 62, which is governed by the element 68 regulation that restricts the second work area 62b2 or 62b4 side of the reception in the working position before the valve 65 side of the reception closes the hole 16a of the reception. The movable element 32 moves the valve 35 side of the source of the provisions permitted the filing of the developer in the position of prohibited feed the developer in connection with its rotation. Thus, the hole 34 of the feeder is closed.

In accordance with this alternative implementation, when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary site 100a device or extract position in the Institute, in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device, loss of the developer through the opening 34 of the feed is prevented. This can be provided pre-emptive effects of the previous embodiments.

(The case when the cartridge primary color set in the main unit)

Below will be described a case where the cartridge 7 primary color set in the primary site 100A device in the position in which the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100A device.

Before installing the cartridge 7 primary colors at the primary site 100A device hole 45d housing of the cartridge 7 of the base color and a connecting hole 45A is not located opposite the connecting holes 65b (item (d) of figure 7). Thus, the flap 35 occupies the position of prohibited feed of the developer.

Therefore, the hole 16A of the reception is closed by the valve 35, and in this state, the developer cannot be obtained from the cartridge 9 filing. Notch 68A regulatory element 68 regulation is engaged with the protrusion 62b (62b1 or 62b3) of the rolling element 62. Therefore, the rotation (movement) of the moving element 62 is regulated or prevented.

Even when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary site 100A device in the position in which the cartridge 7 main color is outside the primary host 100A condition the device, to the rolling element 32 is not applied no power. Therefore, the valve 35 does not rotate. The hole 34 of the feeder is closed, and in this state, the supply of developer in the cartridge 7 main color is impossible. Thus, the valve 35 is maintained in position prohibited the filing of the developer.

First, as described above, the guided sections 43A 43b are mounted on rails 102A, 102b of the main node, and the cartridge 7 primary color promoting at the primary site 100A device in the direction indicated by the arrow at position (k) Fig.

When the cartridge 7 main colors are promoting in the position shown in position (j) Fig, plot 31b1 engagement of the first element 31b engage the cartridge 9 feed comes in contact with a plot 68b3 inclined surface of the guide surface 68b of the element 68 of the regulation.

Upon further advancement of the cartridge 7 primary color plot 68b3 inclined surface is directed plot 31b1 engagement, as shown at position (i) on Fig. Therefore, the element 68 regulation, pressed in the upper position regulation by elastic force of the spring 70 moves downward, overcoming the force of elasticity of the spring force), the position of the resolution provided in the lower part, which includes a section 16 for accommodation of the developer (in the direction indicated by arrow H in position (i) on Fig).

When the plot 31b1 C is Ceplene cartridge 9 supply reaches the area 68b2 flat surface of the guide surfaces 68b, the engagement between the recess 68A regulatory element 68 regulation and protrusion 62b (62b1 or 62b3 figure 10) is disconnected. In the movable element 62 receives rotation (item (h) on Fig).

After that, the plot 31b1 gear slips on the site 68b2 flat surface element 68 regulation for engagement with the protrusion 62b (62b1 or 62b3) of the rolling element 62, causing the movable element 62 is rotated in the clockwise direction (item (g) on Fig). During the rotation of the rolling element 62, the valve 65 mounted thereon also rotates in the clockwise direction. And a connecting hole 65b of the valve 65 is placed in front of and communicates with the hole 45d of the casing and the connecting hole 45a. The recess 62c (62c1 or 62c3 figure 10) is provided for installation in her plot 31a1 engagement when the plot 31a1 gear engages with the protrusion 62b (62b1 or 62b3).

When the cartridge 7 is pushed into the base color is the position in which the engagement between the plot 31b1 gearing and movable element 62 is released, the valve 65 is rotated by 90°. Then the rotation of the damper 65 is stopped. At this time, the connecting hole 65b is located opposite the holes 45d of the casing and the connecting holes 45a (position permitted the filing of the developer). Here, the valve 65 of the cartridge 7 primary colors is opened so that the card is ij 7 primary colors can receive the developer from the cartridge 9 filing (item (f) on Fig).

As shown in items (e)-(d) on Fig, when the cartridge 7 main color is pushed further in the primary site 100a device, plot 68b1 inclined surface is directed plot 31b1 gearing. Therefore, the element 68 regulation moves to the top position of the control (in the direction indicated by the arrow at position (e) on Fig) under the action of the elastic force (spring force) of the spring 70.

When the plot 31b1 engagement of the cartridge 9 feed back from a plot 68b1 inclined surface of the guide surfaces 68b, the protrusion 62b (62b2 or 62b4) figure 10 engages with the notch regulation 68a element 68 of regulation. The movable element 62 restores adjustable position, in which rotation is prevented (item (d) on Fig).

The cartridge 7 primary color next moves in the primary site 100a device. Then the protrusion 62b (62b2 or 62b4 in figure 10) of the rolling element 62 engages with the protrusion 32b (32b1 or 32b3 on Fig) and the notch 32c (32c2 or 32c4 on Fig) of the rolling element 32. At this time, the rotation of the rolling element 62 is regulated or prevented by element 68 of regulation. Therefore, to the rolling element 32 a force is applied from the rolling element 62, which rotates it in the clockwise direction (arrow J in position (c) on Fig). During the rotation of the rolling element 32 valve 35 mounted thereon, also the rotatin in a clockwise direction. Then the connecting hole 35b of the valve 35 is located opposite the holes 44d of the T-shaped housing and the connecting holes 44a (position (c)-(b)).

And set the plot of the cartridge 7 primary colors adjacent to the shaft (not shown) of the primary node, which is provided in the primary host 100a device. This 90° rotation valve 35 ends. Thus, the installation operation of the cartridge 7 primary colors at the primary site 100a device ends. At this time, the rotation of the damper 35 is stopped. A connecting hole 35b is now located opposite the holes 44d of the T-shaped housing and the connecting holes 44a (item (a) (7). The hole 34 of the filing also revealed, and so the flow of developer in the cartridge 7 main colors are allowed (item (a) on Fig).

Here, the cartridge 7 primary colors includes a movable element 62 side of the reception, which will be described below.

The movable element 62 includes a first work area (setback) 62b3, 62b1 hand technique, which is installed in a working position when the damper 65 side of the receiving set to prohibited feed of the developer, and the second work area (setback) 62b2, 62b4 hand technique, which is installed in a working position when the damper 65 side of the receiving set to the allowed filing of the developer. If e is ω movable element 62 is interconnected moves the damper 65. The movement of the moving element 62 is governed by the element 68 of the regulation with the first work area 62b3, 62b1, installed in the first operating position. The movable element 62 moves downward in the contact element 68 of the regulation with the first element 31b engagement, when the cartridge 7 main color is injected into the primary site 100a device. In this implementation the movable element 62 is released from the element 68 regulation, gaining the ability of the movement (rotation). Then the movable element 62 is interconnected moves the damper 65 side receiving position permitted the filing of the developer as a result of its motion caused by contact of the first working section 62b3, 62b1 with the first element 31b gearing.

Here, the top surface is a surface facing upward when the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device. This does not necessarily mean the upper surface of the cartridge.

In this embodiment, the valve 65 side of the reception is made cylindrical, but is not limited to this. For example, the valve 65 may be made of any rotating element, more specifically, it may be, for example, the form of a round column. However, the cylindrical shape is preferred from the viewpoint of ease of production. Valve is not limited to a rotating structure, and perhaps the use of a sliding structure, which will be described below.

On the first working portion 62b1 or 62b3 side of the reception includes a protrusion located on peripherin the second surface of the rolling element 62 side of the reception. The protrusion engages with the engagement element (the first element 31b gear, the second element 31a gearing) to obtain the force of rotation. When you flap 65 side taking turns. On the second working portion 62b2 or 62b4 side of the reception includes a protrusion located on a peripheral surface of the rolling element 62. The protrusion engages with the protrusion of the work area 32b1, 32b2, 32b3, 32b4d side of the source of the rolling element 32. In the valve 35 side of the source rotates.

In accordance with this alternative implementation of the present invention provides a power transmission at the junction between the tabs.

The movable element 32 is located on the bottom surface of the cartridge 9 filing, when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device. The movable element 32 rotates so that its outer edge is moved in the direction in which perform installation and removal of the primary node device 100a of the cartridge 9 filing and along the length of the cartridge 9 filing. Thus, the movable element 32 rotates around a horizontal axis, continuing in the direction intersecting with the longitudinal direction of the cartridge 9 filing.

Flap 35 is located on the bottom surface of the cartridge 9 filing, when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device. Rotating the SaaS is the PMC 65 is cylindrical in shape. Flap 35 is rotated so that its outer contour is moved in the direction of installation and removal of the primary node device 100a of the cartridge 9 filing and along the length of the cartridge 9 filing. In other words, the flap 35 is made in the form of a cylinder rotating around a horizontal axis, continuing in the direction intersecting with the longitudinal direction of the cartridge 9 filing. The valve 35 has a hole (connecting hole 35b) on its peripheral surface, which passes the flow of the developer in the radial direction of cylindrical shape, when the hole is located opposite to or combined with a hole 16a receiving opening hole 16a of the reception. When the hole (connecting hole 35b) is located opposite the openings 34 of the feed hole 34 submission of offers, and when the plot without holes (binder holes 35b) is located opposite the openings 34 of the feed hole 34 of the feeder is closed.

Here, the lower surface means a surface or side facing down when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device. This does not necessarily mean the bottom surface.

In this embodiment, the valve 35 has a cylindrical shape, but it does not limit the present invention. It can be implemented as any of a rotating element, such as rotating the jaś round column. However, the cylindrical shape is preferred from the viewpoint of ease of production. Flap 35 is not limited to the rotary valve, but it is possible to apply a sliding shutter which will be described below.

In addition, the movable element 32 provides working areas 32b1, 32b2, 32b3 and 32b4 side of the source. The protrusion of the work area 32b1, 32b2, 32b3, 32b4 side of the source engages with the protrusion of the work area 62b2, 62b4 side of reception of application of force of rotation. In the flap 35 is rotated.

In accordance with this alternative implementation of the present invention, the power transmission is ensured by the adjunction of tabs.

As described above, in this embodiment, the flaps 35 and 65 are rotatable cylindrical elements (rotating element). This has the advantage, compared with the flap that performs translational motion, because the area on which settles the developer, it turns out small.

The above-described operating position will be described in more detail.

The working position is the position in which the working section 62b2, 62b4 side of the receiving (second work area side of the reception) of the rolling element 62 side of the reception, when the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device, located opposite or meshed with the movable element 32 side of the source of the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device. In this embodiment, the operating position is in the upper position of the trajectory of rotation of the rolling element 62 side of the reception. In this working position on the work area 62b2, 62b4 side receiving impact force from element 31a or 31b gearing rotates the movable element 62 side of the reception. In this working position to a working area 62b2, 62b4 side receiving a force is applied from the rolling element 32 side of the source, which rotates the movable element 32 side of the source.

Thus, even if the cartridge 9 supply of the developer is set in the primary host 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 of the base color is not installed on the primary node 100a device, is supported in the closed condition, the holes 34 of the supply of the developer, in addition, even when the cartridge 7 main color is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 supply of the developer is installed in the primary site 100a device.

In the preceding examples, the cartridges properly operate independently of the order of installation of the cartridge 9 feed and cartridge 7 of the base color or eject a cartridge 9 feed and cartridge 7 of the base color. The movable element 32 side of the source and the movable element 62 of the reception side are rotated so that the outer to omca moves in the direction of installation. In other words, the movable element 62 is rotated around the horizontal axis, continuing in the direction intersecting with the longitudinal direction of the cartridge 7 of the base color, in the position in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device. Similarly, the movable element 32 rotates around a horizontal axis, continuing in the direction intersecting with the longitudinal direction of the cartridge 9 filing in the position in which the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device.

Here, the "horizontal" does not necessarily mean "perpendicular to the vertical direction (direction of gravity)". More specifically, in this example, "horizontal" refers to the deviation from the true horizontal direction within the range of ±15°. The range is satisfactory when the movable element 32 and the movable element 62 engage with each other in such a way that can be transferred power. In other words, the range is satisfactory if the valve 35 and 65 may be rotated.

Thus, compared with the conventional structure in which the feed opening and the sealing section is installed on the flat element rotating around a vertical axis, the area of the feed opening of the developer and the area of the valve will be less than in the direction transverse to the battle of the ia. Therefore, the dimensions of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 supply of the developer can be reduced, and the footprint of the device forming the image 100 can be reduced in the case of placing the four cartridges 7 primary colors and four cartridges 9 supply of the developer.

In addition, the hole 34 of the filing of the cartridge 9 filing opens only after you open the hole 16a of the reception of the cartridge 7 primary colors, regardless of the order of operations installation of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device. Therefore, the upper level of the developer housed in the cartridge 7 of the base color (section 16 for accommodation of the developer), can be raised to the next level with the opening reception. This allows you to reduce the size of the cartridge 7 to the main color in the direction of height. Even when the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 9 filing is not installed on the primary node device 100a, the hole 16a of the reception will never be open. Therefore the eruption of the developer through the opening 16a even when struck, when the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device. Therefore, the developer can be placed up to a height near the upper level 7e.

In addition, the hole 34 submission of offers just after the spacecraft will open hole 16a reception regardless of the order of installation of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device. Therefore, prevents the scattering of the developer, when the cartridge 7 of the base color or the cartridge 9 supply of the developer is installed in the primary host 100a device.

Opening reception developer 16a is closed only after you have closed the hole 34 of filing, regardless of the order of retrieval operations of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 feed from the primary host 100a device. Therefore, prevents the scattering of the developer, when the cartridge 7 of the base color and/or the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device.

As described above, the hole 16a of the reception of the cartridge 7 of the base color does not open when the cartridge 9 filing is not installed on the primary node 100a device. Therefore, even when the cartridge 7 primary color leave in the primary host 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 9 filing is not installed on the primary node device 100a, it is unlikely that a foreign substance gets into the cartridge 7 main color.

Valve 35 side of the source and the valve 65 of the reception side can be opened in response to operation of the cartridge 7 of the base color or cartridge 9 filing, regardless of the order of operations installation of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 submission to the primary node you.

In addition, the valve 35 side of the source and the valve 65 side of the reception may be closed in response to the operation of extraction of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 filing, regardless of the order of retrieval operations of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 feed from the primary host 100a device.

Accordingly, it is possible to switch between an open and closed state of the valve 35 side of the source and the valve 65 of the reception side in response to operation of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 filing, regardless of the order of operations installation of the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 submission to the primary site 100a device.

Thus, the operator can properly install or remove the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 feed from the primary host 100a device regardless of the order of the operations of their installation and removal. Thus, the operation of installing and removing improve.

In addition, only when the shutter 65 of the side of the reception opens a hole 16a, and the protrusion 62b of the rolling element 62 side of the cartridge and the protrusion 32b and the notch 32c of the rolling element 32 side of the source which engage with each other.

Therefore, the movable elements 32 and 62 operate in the areas of detection, which detects the open state of the valve cartridge 7 of the base color. This eliminates the need to use the for this purpose, mechanisms of detection. In addition, even if the operator erroneously installs the cartridge 7 main colors in the primary node device 100 in position when the valve 65 of the cartridge 7 main color is open, and the operator then installs the cartridge 9 submission to the master node device 100, the mobile elements 32 and 62 do not engage with each other.

In this case, when installing the cartridge 9 submission will be incomplete installation. When an incomplete installation, the operator may be transferred to the notice of the erroneous installation of the cartridge 7 to the main color.

[Second version runtime]

A damper mechanism in accordance with a second embodiment of implementation of the present invention will be described with reference to Fig - Fig. In the second embodiment, the area of the valve is made sliding in the horizontal direction and not rotatable. The basic structure of the cartridge feed the developer cartridge primary color, etc. is made the same as in the first embodiments, and therefore detailed description is not shown here for simplicity. The mechanism of the valve cartridge feed the developer cartridge primary color will be described below. The same reference position as in embodiment 1 are denoted by the elements having the corresponding functions in this embodiment, and their detailed description is not shown for simplicity.

On Fig shows in perspective the e exploded view of the components of the valve cartridge 9 filing and related items. On Fig shows a perspective view of the valve cartridge 7 of the base color and the associated elements. On Fig illustrates the operation of the valve cartridge 9 filing and presents related items.

Next will be described the valve cartridge 9 filing in this embodiment.

As shown in Fig, when the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device, on the lower surface 33 of the placement of the developer cartridge 9 filing a fixed T-shaped housing 46. In the T-shaped housing 46 has a hole 46a of the T-shaped body corresponding to the hole 16a of the reception of the cartridge 7 of the base color. At opposite ends of the holes 46a of the T-shaped housing provided by sections 46b, 46c and groove sections 46d of the stopper. Below the hole 46a of the T-shaped housing provided by the valve 82 side of the source.

Flap 82 and the source contains a section 82a of the valve (section damper side of the source), designed for opening and closing holes 46a of the T-shaped housing, and a movable section 82b side of the source, for transmitting the forces of opening and closing as the result of engagement with the cartridge 7 of the base color. On the section 82a of the valve is provided by a connecting hole 82c valve side of the source gear section 82d, 82e and the area of the tooth 8f. On the other hand, moving the plot 82b side of the source provides the guiding groove 82b1, which includes the inclined surface and the area of flat surface.

The method of Assembly of the valve cartridge 9 filing will be described below.

First gear parts 82d, 82e valve 82 side of the source engage with portions 46b, 46c of the groove of the T-shaped housing 46. They engage so that the area 82f prong valve 82 side of the source is moved along the section 46d of the stopper. Thus, the valve 82 is held to slide in the horizontal direction gear parts 82d, 82e and sections 46b, 46c of the groove. Section 82f tooth and the portion of the stopper 46d, geared to each other to prevent separation of the valve 82 from the cartridge 9 filing. When the sliding movement of the valve 82 connecting hole of the valve 85 side of the source and the hole 46a of the T-shaped housing mounted in front or are combined with each other, and the developer can be fed from the cartridge 9 filing.

The structure of the valve cartridge 7 main colors in this embodiment will be described below.

As shown in Fig on the movable element 90 of the reception side (moving the plot side of the reception)used in this embodiment, provides working areas 90a and 90b in the form of protrusions. As shown in Fig, Uch work is a flow 90a, 90b, when the valve 65 side of the reception area of the valve side of the reception) is in the open state, which allows the reception of the developer in the hole 80a of the reception of the developer housing 80 device manifestations, positioned opposite the cartridge 9 submission (regulation permitted the filing of the developer). Other structures located near the valve are the same as in the first embodiment, and therefore their detailed description will not be shown.

Below, with reference to Fig, will be described the case in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device.

During the installation process cartridge 7 main colors are the same operations as in the first embodiment, to a certain point. More specifically, the movable element 90 is moved to open the opening reception 80a, and then the movable element 90 is adjusted so that prevents its rotation element 68 of regulation, and to this stage performs the same operation as in the first embodiment. Therefore, their description will be omitted. As described above, when the opening reception 80a is in the open position, which allows the reception of the developer, the working section 90a or 90b provided on the movable element is 90, is located opposite the cartridge 9 submission (regulation prohibited the filing of developer) (Fig).

In this case, the hole 46a of the T-shaped housing of the cartridge 9 supply of the developer is not located opposite the connecting holes 82c, that is, it is in the closed position, which prevents the supply of the developer. The cartridge 7 main color is pushed further in the primary site 100a device. Then the working section 90a or work area 90b move in the direction of the arrow K in position (a) on Fig). And work area 90a or work area 90b engages with the guide groove 82b1.

Upon further advancement of the cartridge 7 primary colors at the primary site 100a device work area 90a or work area 90b is set in directed inclined surface plot 82b3 and plot 82b2 flat surface provided in the guiding groove 82b1. Therefore, the valve 82 side of the source is kept sliding section 46b of the groove, and section 46c of the groove is moved in the direction of the arrow L (at position (b) on Fig). Thus, the valve 82 is moved horizontally.

The cartridge 7 primary color reaches the position (position (b) on Fig) complete installation. Then the working section 90a or work area 90b are held land 82b2 the flat surface of the guide groove 82b1, and a connecting hole 82c valve 82 with the pile-source and the hole 46a of the T-shaped housing mounted in front of each other.

When the cartridge 7 main color is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which you installed the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 feed valve 82 side of the source element 68 of the regulation, the movable element 90 and the valve 65 side of the reception work in reverse order.

Therefore, when the cartridge 7 primary color set in the primary site 100a device, hole 46a of the housing of the cartridge 9 filing, installed on the primary node device 100a, and a connecting hole 82c are not located opposite each other. Therefore, the housing bore 46a is closed, that does not prevent the flow of developer in the cartridge 7 main color.

When the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary site 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device, and when the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node device 100 in the position in which the cartridge 9 filing and the cartridge 7 primary colors installed in the main unit 100, and performs the same operation as described above.

In accordance with this variant of execution, as well as in the first embodiment, is achieved by saving space, preventing the scattering of toner or the like.

In this embodiment, bipolarization 82 side of the source is made so, the plot flaps 82a and moving the plot 82b formed as a single part. However, in this embodiment, the flap 82 side of the source can be compiled from the valve side of the source for opening and closing the valve housing and the rolling element side of the source for the application thereto of forces from the working section of the cartridge main color.

In this embodiment, the flap 82 slides in the horizontal direction. Thus, the hole 34 of the feed can be opened and closed.

[Third version of the runtime]

Below, with reference to Fig - Fig, will describe the mechanism of the valve used with the cartridge 9 filing and the cartridge 7 of the base color, which is applied the present invention, in accordance with the third alternative implementation of the present invention. In the third embodiment, the use of the external cover.

On Fig presents a perspective view of the stopper activated on the movable element side of the source cartridge 9 filing. On Fig shows the stopper of the cartridge 9 filing and related items. On Fig shows a perspective view of the outer cover of the cartridge 9 filing. On Fig explains the work of the external cover of the cartridge 9 supply of the developer and its related elements.

The structure of the damper and the structure of the valve cartridge 9 is filing are the same, as the cartridge 7 of the base color, and therefore their description is omitted.

[Structure of the stopper of the rolling element side of the source cartridge source]

Regulatory movement (stop) of the rolling element 32 of the cartridge 9 filing will be described with reference to Fig.

Plot 33 host developer provides an element 141 of the release of T regulatory and T-shaped element 140 regulation designed to control the movement of the moving element 32.

Element 140 regulation is retained with the possibility of sliding movement in the vertical direction (the direction of arrow M) sections 142a, 143a of teeth and rails 142, 143 slip provided in section 33 of the placement of the developer.

Element 141 of the release is held rotatably plot holes 141a element 141 release, geared with section 144 of the shaft, and an element 147 prevent separation provided for in section 33 of the placement of the developer. On the element 141 of the release provided by the hole 141b gear geared with the shaft 140a engagement element 140 regulation. In position through the plot holes 141a (the center of rotation of the element 141 release) from the hole 141b gearing includes a section 141c of the shaft receiving power, intended to influence him drive power from the primary node ustroystva. Under the force of the actuator element 141 release revolves.

Under the action of the elastic force of the coil spring 145 provided between section 33 of the placement of the developer and element 141 of the release element 141 of the release is pressed in the clockwise direction (the direction of arrow N on Fig). The force normally presses down element 140 regulation, meshed with element 141 of the release.

In the state of the initial position (position control) groove 140b regulation, provided on the element 140 regulation, and the protrusion 32b (32b1, 32b3) of the rolling element 32 engage with each other. It regulates or prevents movement of the rolling element 32.

[Operation of the stopper of the rolling element side source]

The operation element 140 regulation, when the cartridge 9 feed is introduced into the primary node device 100 will be described with reference to Fig.

As described above, when the cartridge 9 filing is not installed in the main unit 100, the groove 140b is engaged with the protrusion 32b (32b1, 32b3) of the rolling element 32. Therefore, the movement of the rolling element 32 is regulated or prevented.

Therefore, even if the operator inadvertently touches the rolling element 32, or even if vibration is transmitted to the cartridge 9 feed during its transportation, the movable ele is UNT 32 does not move.

The cartridge 9 feeder is installed on the rails 101a of the primary node is provided in the primary host 100a device, and is moved in the primary site 100a device (cartridge 9 submission moves in the direction of arrow A (position (a) on Fig).

When the cartridge 9 filing inserted in the position shown in position (b) on Fig, section 141c of the shaft receiving element force 141 release comes in contact with the section 146a of the inclined surface of the guide 146 rail 101a of the primary node.

And, as the cartridge 9 filing, the area of the shaft 141c is directed by section 146a of the inclined surface. As a result, the element 141 of the release is moved in a counterclockwise direction (in the direction of the arrow P at position (b) on Fig), overcoming the force of elasticity of the spring force). Element 141 of the release is pressed in the clockwise direction by elastic force of the coil spring 145. As a result, the element 140 regulation, located in the lower position of the regulation, is moved to the upper position resolution (the direction of arrow Q in position (b) on Fig), section 33 of the placement of the developer.

When the cartridge 9 filing promote further so that the section 141c of the shaft reaches the area 146b flat surface of the guide surface 146, the engagement between the groove 140b and the protrusion 32b (32b1 or 32b3 figure 6) is released. In achiev is Tate the movable element 32 is allowed to revolve (item (c) on Fig).

When moving the rolling element 32 in this state, the connecting hole 44a is opened. Thus, the permitted flow of developer in the cartridge 7 of the base color of the cartridge 9 filing.

Thus govern the action of the lifting of the ban movement of the rolling element 32 element 140 regulation to the movement of the moving element 32, an opening connecting hole 44a, with the proper arrangement of the guide surface 146 (146a, 146b) rail 101 of the primary node in the longitudinal direction. This regulation may regulate or prohibit the movement of the rolling element 32, not preventing the operation of opening and closing section 82a of the valve during the operation.

[Structure of the T-shaped outer cover of the cartridge feed]

As shown in Fig, the bottom surface of the housing 44 of the cartridge 9 filing closed T-shaped outer cover 148. Cover 148 includes a section 148a of the cover connecting hole 44a of the housing 44 and the hole 148b of the shaft, which is geared section 149 of the shaft section 33 of the placement of the developer. Cover 148 includes surface 148c1, 148c2 that press for removal of the cover 148 of the connecting holes 44a in contact with the sealing element 67 or housing 45 of the device manifestations of the cartridge 7 of the base color. The cover 148 is located in the position in which it is Zack who indicates a connecting hole 44a, when it doesn't effect the strength of the coil spring 150, which is located essentially coaxially with section 149 of the shaft.

[Structure of the drive section of the T-shaped external cover]

Below, with reference to Fig, will describe the operation of removal of the cover 148, when only one cartridge 9 feed and cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device, and another cartridge is installed in the primary site 100a device.

Consider first the case when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary site 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device.

The cartridge 9 submission move on the rails 101a and 101b of the primary node is provided in the main unit 100, and is inserted in the direction indicated by the arrow And figa.

When the cartridge 9 filing inserted in the position shown in fig.22b, presses the surface 148c1 cover 148 is in contact with the sealing element 67 of the cartridge 7 of the base color, as indicated by the phantom lines in fig.22b.

As the cartridge 9 filing to the surface 148c1 pressed sealing element 67. In the cover 148 mounted in position, closing the connecting hole 44a, the spiral spring 150, is rotated in the clockwise direction (direction R in the figure, overcoming the spring force.

In addition, before completing the installation operation of the cartridge 9 submission to the master node device 100, the cover 148 is drained from the connecting hole 44a. Therefore, the supply of the developer from the cartridge 9 filing is permitted (figs).

When the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device, the cover 148 is performed in the reverse order (figs - figa).

When the cartridge 9 filing extract, the cover 148 is returned to the position closing the connecting hole 44a, the clamping force of the coil spring 150.

Below will be described a case where the cartridge 7 main color is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 of the base color and the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary host 100a device.

The cartridge 7 primary colors move in the direction of arrow S (fig.22d). During the period in which presses the surface 148c1 press the sealing element 67, the extraction process cartridge 7 primary color cover 148 is held in the designated position from the connecting holes 34a (fig.22d).

Then, as the cartridge 7 primary colors take on in such position that the sealing element 67 out of contact with the press is again the 148c1, the cover 148 is returned to the position in which it closes the connecting hole 34a under the force of pressure of the coil spring 150.

Therefore, when the cartridge 9 filing completely remove, the cover 148 is returned to the position in which it closes the connecting hole 44a under the force of pressure of the coil spring 150 (fige).

Thus, regardless of the cartridge 7 or 9 will be retrieved first, outer T-shaped cover 148 closes the connecting hole 34a, 44a in the process of removal of the cartridge.

When the cartridge 9 primary color set in the main unit 100 in the position in which the cartridge 9 supply installed in the main unit 100, the sealing element 67 presses presses the surface 148c2. As a result, as in the case described above, the cover 148 is installed in the position in which it closes the connecting hole 44a, with the coil spring 150 moves, overcoming the force of elasticity (spring force). And the cover 148 is drained from the connecting hole 44a.

In this design the site that supplies the developer, normally closed by a cover 148, except for the status of the operation. Therefore, when the cartridge 9 supply installed in the primary site 100a device or extract, patch, feeding the developer located on participation is ke bottom surface of the cartridge 9 filing, which is difficult to see the operator is protected from the rough touch of the operator.

The operations performed when the cartridge 9 is installed in the primary host 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 7 foreground color is set in the primary host 100a device, or when the cartridge 9 filing is extracted from the primary node 100a device in the position in which the cartridge 9 and the cartridge 7 primary colors installed in the primary host 100a device are the same as the above-described operation, and therefore a detailed description of these cases is omitted.

In this embodiment, as in the first versions of the efficiency saves space, eliminates the scattering of the developer or the like.

In the foregoing description color electrophotographic device imaging, which uses four cartridge feeder and four cartridge primary colors, respectively, was taken as an example. However, the present invention is not limited to this example. For example, the present invention is applicable to the cartridge feed of the developer and the cartridge main colors used in monochrome electrophotographic device imaging. The present invention is also applicable to such electrophotographic device forming the image.

Cu is IU, as described above, in the present invention the flap side of the reception and the movable element side of the reception can be performed as separate items, and the gate side of the source and the movable element side of the source can be implemented as separate elements.

In this case, easier to assemble.

Conversely, in the case of a single design may be the reduced number of parts. A qualified expert in the art can suitably select the design depending on the desired application.
