Application: Image forming apparatus (Patent ID: US20230418205A1)

The patent filed by Kyocera Corp describes an image forming apparatus that includes various components such as an image carrying member, intermediate transfer belt, primary and secondary transfer rollers, current feeder, controller, current sensor, and rectifier. The apparatus is designed to control the output current in a way that ensures the secondary transfer current is maintained at a specific value by subtracting the leak current. Additionally, the rectifier shuts off the current passing from the second belt support roller to the ground if the voltage on the roller is below a predetermined reference voltage.

Furthermore, the patent details the structure and operation of the image forming apparatus, including the components of the current feeder, operational amplifier, rectifier, and the connection of the lead member. The apparatus is designed to maintain the voltage on the second belt support roller below the reference voltage when the lead member is conducting. The patent also specifies the resistivity of the intermediate transfer belt and the total resistance of the secondary transfer roller, along with the materials used in their construction, such as conductive carbon and ion-conductive resin material.
