Abstract

It is known that chatter vibration of a cleaning blade in laser printers, caused by the friction between the cleaning blade and the photoreceptor, occasionally produces a squeaking noise. This research aims to analyze the dynamics of the cleaning blade, from the viewpoint of mode-coupled vibrations. The dynamics of the cleaning blade are theoretically analyzed using an essential 2DOF link model, with emphasis placed on the contact between the blade and the photoreceptor. The cleaning blade is assumed to always be in contact at one point with a moving floor surface, which is given a displacement δfrom its initial position in the vertical direction. This causes the vertical load N and the frictional force μN to continuously act on the bottom end. By solving the equations governing the motion of the analytical model, five patterns of static equilibrium states are obtained, and.
