Measures to take in case of an accident

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0

Measures to take in case of an accident


1. If an accident has occurred, the distributor who has been notified first must immediately take emergency
measures to provide relief to affected persons and to prevent further damage.

2. If a report of a serious accident has been received from a customer, an on-site evaluation must be carried
out quickly and KMBT must be notified.

3. To determine the cause of the accident, conditions and materials must be recorded through direct on-site
checks, in accordance with instructions issued by KMBT.

4. For reports and measures concerning serious accidents, follow the regulations given in "Serious Accident
Report/Follow-up Procedures."

Operation
Outline

Analog image data read by the CCD sensor is AD converted by the CCD board (CCDB) before being sent out to the image processing board (IPB) for data processing. The image data thus processed is converted into laser beams by the laser drive board (LDB) and written onto the drum. The laser emits 2 beams with a single laser diode and writes 2 lines in one scan. The position at which the write starts is detected by the index board (INDEXB). The 2 image memory control ASIC's equipped on the image processing board (IPB) conduct the compression/ II Composition/Operation decompression processing of the image data on the main image memory (256 MB) and the sub image memory (64 MB). This is to improve the multi access and realize the thumb-nail display function. Through the control of the HDD controller on the IPB, the space of 10 GB out of the large capacity hard disk /1 (HDD1) of 40 GB is used as an image memory. This space of 10 GB serves as an extension of each of the on-board image memories to reduce the occurrence of memory overflow.

A. MPC (Maximum power control) The image processing board (IPB) indicates to the laser drive board (LDB) a maximum output value emitted by the laser to set the maximum output value. The LDB stores this set value and maintains the amount of the laser beam stored through the APC (automatic power control) operations. See "18. IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL." (1) Execution timing When the power switch (SW2) is turned ON. After this, the MPC value is controlled by the dot diameter II Composition/Operation adjustment control. B. APC (Auto power control) The laser drive board (LDB) monitors the laser beam output for each scanned line. When the image processing board (IPB) completes the MPC setting, the LDB controls the laser output to the MPC value for each scanned line. C. Dot diameter correction control The patch image density on the drum is detected by the sensor on the toner control sensor board (TCSB), and the laser drive board (LDB) controls the amount of the laser beam so that its output value becomes the specified value. See "18. IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL." (1) Execution timing while in the print When selecting "auto dot diameter adjustment" in the service mode. (2) Execution timing other than while in the print After completion of the job for each 40,000 prints on the PM counter.

Operation
Drum claw drive

A. Purpose To prevent the occurrence of a drum wrap jam, 3 drum claws are employed to prevent the drum from being wrapped with the copy paper. The contact and the release of contact of the drum claws onto the drum is made by turning ON/OFF the drum claw solenoid (SD5). B. Oscillation operation To prevent the transfer paper from getting soiled in certain areas and the drum from being damaged, the drum claws oscillate front to rear on the drum surface about 8 mm. There is a projection on the rear side of the drum claw unit. A cam provided on the gear presses this projection to push the drum claw unit to the front side. When the gear rotation releases the cam, the drum claw unit is returned to its former position by the spring. Repeating this operation oscillates the drum claws. 4.3.2 Cooling around the drum II Composition/Operation

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0

A. Drum potential correction The drum potential is controlled to keep the image quality at a fixed level at all times, regardless of the operating environment and the number of prints. For the drum potential correction control, a latent patch is formed on the drum surface with the laser PWM set to maximum. Next the potential difference between the latent patch and the developing bias are measured to adjust the charging current, the grid voltage and developing bias potential so that this potential difference becomes a prescribed voltage at all times. See "18. IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL." II Composition/Operation (1) Execution timing When the fusing temperature is below 50C with the power switch (SW2) ON. When the prescribed conditions (number of prints, and developing theta) are met. B. Environmental decision control The temperature of the environment in which the main body is installed is detected by the drum temperature sensor (TH5), and the environmental humidity is detected by the humidity sensor mounted in the printer control board (PRCB). Data thus detected are used as information to keep the image quality at a fixed level. See "18. IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL." (1) Execution timing When the prescribed conditions are met with the SW2 ON. C. Drum rotation control When printing is interrupted under a high humidity environment, and under the environments of low humidity and a normal humidity, the surface sensitivity is different between the drum surface that is in contact with the developing unit and the cleaning unit and the drum surface that is in touch with nothing. When printing is made in a condition like this, uneven printing is made in the sub scan direction of the paper. To prevent this, the drum is rotated at a fixed cycle for a prescribed period of time to obtain a uniform surface sensitivity. See "18. IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL." (1) Execution timing Once every 3 minutes while in idling Once every hour while in the low power mode When the prescribed conditions are met with the SW2 ON

TRANSFER/SEPARATION SECTION

A. Purpose To enhance the transferability on the entire rear side of paper, the transfer assist sheet presses up the entire rear side of paper to get it in contact securely with the drum while in the transfer on the rear side. However, the size of paper to be operated must be larger than 297 mm (A3/A4) in the main scan direction (default for metric area), and larger than 279 mm (11 inches) (default for inch area). B. Timing The paper pressing operation of the transfer assist sheet is controlled so that the pressing operation is only made when paper is provided to prevent the transfer assist sheet from getting contact with the drum. The ON/ OFF timing of the pressing operation varies according to each of the line speeds. (1) ON timing The transfer assist sheet turns ON at a specified distance after the leading edge of paper passes through the transfer guide. This ON timing is based on the point at which the paper leading edge sensor (PS41) turns ON. (2) OFF timing The transfer assist sheet turns OFF short of a specified distance before the trailing edge of paper passes through the transfer guide. This OFF timing is based on the point at which the paper leading edge sensor (PS41) (PS41) turns OFF. (3) Others When paper is found mis-centered more than 5 mm by the centering sensor (PS54), no pressure operation is made (to prevent the drum from being damaged). The pressing operation is made only when the copy is being made on the second side of the paper. However, the weight of paper is in excess of 91 g/m2, the pressing operation is not made even while in the copy on the second side of the paper. The paper width to which the transfer assist sheet is applicable is limited. When printing paper the width of which is shorter than a set width, the pressing operation is not made because of the drum getting damaged. The pressing operation of the transfer assist sheet can be disabled by the software DIPSW. (DIPSW 6-2) For paper sizes other than default, see "4.5 PCS corresponding parts," in Field Service, Chapter II. II Composition/Operation

Operation
Toner conveyance control

A. Purpose The toner supply section of the intermediate and low speed machines is equipped near the developing unit. For the high speed machine that deals with a large number of prints, a toner supply section of a large capacity is required and it is not possible to secure a sufficient space near the developing unit. So, it is inevitable to place the toner supply section in a location away from the developing unit. As a result, because of the distance up to the toner supply section having to be extended, an toner conveyance mechanism to deal with the long distance is required. As a toner conveyance device for the long distance, this machine employs the air conveyance method using the toner pump and the air pump. B. Toner conveyance path II Composition/Operation

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Toner put in from the bottle [1] is conveyed to the large capacity hopper [2] by the agitator operation. When the toner supply operation starts, toner is guided to the mixing section [3], where it is mixed with air from the air pump [5]. Toner mixed with air is conveyed to the air separation section [6] by the pressure from the toner pump [4]. Toner conveyed to the air separation section drops off by its own weight to be separated from the air. Toner separated from the air at the air separation section is conveyed to the intermediate hopper [7] by means of the agitator operation. When the toner supply operation starts, toner in the intermediate hopper is conveyed to the developing unit [8] by means of the agitator operation.

7. Finally, air passing through the air separation section is sent to the mixing section by the air pump. In this manner, a toner conveyance path is formed that circulates between the large capacity hopper and the developing unit.

TONER SUPPLY SECTION

A. Purpose When it is determined that toner supply is required as a result of the toner density control, toner is supplied. The intermediate hopper receives recycled toner from the cleaning section and a new toner from the air separation section.

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0

For the transmission of the drive force to the separation roller [4], the drive force of the paper feed motor (M4) is transmitted by the ON/OFF operation of the separation clutches /1 (CL5) and /2 (CL7) through the torque limiter [3]. The separation roller [4] is driven in the direction opposite to the paper conveyance. However, when no paper is conveyed, and when only one sheet of paper is conveyed, the frictional force generating between the paper feed roller [1] and the separation roller [4] or the paper and the separation roller is greater than the frictional force of the torque limiter [3]. Accordingly, the separation roller rotates in the direction of the paper conveyance to convey paper to the vertical conveyance section. II Composition/Operation When 2 or more sheets of paper are conveyed, the frictional force between these sheets of paper is smaller than the frictional force of the torque limiter and the separation roller rotates in the reverse direction to prevent the lower most paper from being conveyed.

A. Separation clutch control When paper is slippery (or, when the power for conveyance is insufficient), paper conveyed from the pick-up roller may be unable to pass through the separation sections of the paper feed roller and the separation roller. To alleviate a condition like this, turn OFF the separation clutches /1 (CL5) and /2 (CL7) until paper gets to the separation section to cut off the drive force to the separation roller, and make it function as a driven roller to the paper feed roller. After paper gets to the separation section, turn ON the CL5 and CL7 to conduct the normal operation. However, this control should be conducted as follows: Type of paper:Coated paper B: Conducted unconditionally. of conveyance at the separation section.

11.3 Operation
11.3.1 Pre-registration control When the paper feed starts, paper is sent out to the pre-registration roller by the pick-up roller and the paper feed roller. When the paper strikes the pre-registration roller that is stopped, a loop is formed to adjust paper skew. When the pre-registration clutches /1 (CL1) and /2 (CL3) turn on, the driving force of the paper feed motor (M4) is transmitted to the pre-registration rollers /1 and /2 to convey paper. 11.3.2 II Composition/Operation Conveyance control

Paper fed from the tray /1 is conveyed to the conveyance roller /1 which is also driven by the vertical conveyance motor (M8) by the pre-registration roller /1. Paper fed from the tray /2 is conveyed to the conveyance rollers /3 and /2, which are in turn driven by the pre-registration roller /2 and the paper feed motor (M4) through the vertical conveyance clutch (CL2), and then conveyed finally to the conveyance roller /1. Since the line speeds of the pre-registration rollers /1 and /2 and the conveyance rollers /3 and /2 that are driven by the M4 are fixed at a high speed, the pre-registration clutches /1 (CL1) and /2 (CL3), and the CL2, while in the transfer/conveyance in a low speed, are turned off to cut off the transmission of the driving force. At this time, the conveyance roller /1 driven by the M8 rotates at a low speed. However, it starts to rotate in a high speed when the loop sensor (PS16) detects the trailing edge of paper. 11.3.3 roller /1. 11.3.4 Paper dust removing mechanism Exit conveyance control

For the exit conveyance, the vertical conveyance motor (M8) drives the conveyance exit roller and conveyance

At the exit of the vertical conveyance section, paper dust is removed by means of the paper dust guide brush. When paper dust adhering to the conveyance exit roller is removed by the paper dust guide brush (raising brush), it then adheres to the scraper shaft (metal roller) to be removed by the scraper (sheet) that touches the scraper shaft.

12.3 Operation
12.3.1 Multi feed detection control To detect the multi feed of paper while in the paper conveyance, the multi feed sensor is provided at the exit of the loop roller. The multi feed sensor is an acoustic sensor made up of a pair of a sender and a receiver. In this sensor, the sound wave sent from the multi feed detection board /1 (ADUDB1) is received by the multi feed detection board /2 (ADUDB2). When a single sheet of paper passes through this interval, it is possible to receive a sound wave, but when plural sheets of paper pass through, it is not possible to receive sound waves. In this way, a detection is made to check to see if paper is multi fed. However, the following paper may not be detected accurately and the multi feed detection function is turned OFF. Coated paper A and B weighing 50 to 61 g/m2 Paper weighing 210 to 300 g/m2 12.3.2 Loop control II Composition/Operation

When paper conveyed to the loop roller [1] strikes the registration rollers /Up [4] and /Lw [2], a loop [6] is formed until the loop roller turns OFF. In this way, a paper skew is adjusted. When paper is heavier than 162 g/m2, it has a stronger repulsive force and there may occur a transfer jitter due to the increased partial line speed caused by the force by which the loop tends to go back to its original form. Therefore, it is controlled so that the loop amount becomes smaller than that of the paper of 161 g/m2. A. Registration path

Paper mis-centering adjustment control

To detect the mis-centering of paper after registration, the centering sensor (PS54) is provided at the exit of the registration roller. The PS54 is a contact image sensor of about 200 dpi and the mis-centering information detected by the PS54 is processed at the image processing section and adjusted prior to writing so that the image data corresponds to the position. The mis-centering amount can be adjusted up to 5 mm. When the mis-centering amount is in excess of 5 mm, paper is output with no adjustment made. 12.3.4 Paper leading edge timing adjustment control

To detect the paper leading edge timing after registration, the paper leading edge sensor (PS41) is provided at the exit of the registration roller. Based on the paper leading edge position detected by the PS41, adjustments are made prior to writing so that the image data corresponds to the position.

Paper conveyed from the reverse/exit section is conveyed to the ADU by the reverse/exit roller [4] and the ADU reverse roller [5]. When the ADU reverse sensor /1 (PS46) [2] detects the trailing edge of paper and turns OFF, the ADU reverse roller rotates in the reverse direction to send paper back in the direction in which it was conveyed. At this time, the paper is conveyed to the ADU conveyance roller /1 [1] side, not to the reverse/exit roller side, according to the form of the metal frame of the conveyance path. In this manner, each sheet of paper is turned over and reversed and conveyed without being stacked in the ADU. While in this paper conveyance, the ADU reverse sensor /2 (PS45) [6] detects the trailing edge of paper to decide the reverse timing of the ADU reverse roller. II Composition/Operation

15.3 Operation
15.3.1 Fusing roller drive control A. Speed changeover control According to the relationship between the type of paper and the paper weight, the process speed is controlled at a high speed (490 mm/s), medium speed (425 mm/s) and low speed (290 mm/s). B. Preparative rotation control (1) Control when the power is turned ON II Composition/Operation When the fusing temperature is below 50C with the power switch (SW2) turned ON and the detection temperature of the thermistor /1 (TH1) of the fusing roller /Up gets to a specified temperature, the fusing motor (M1) starts a preparative rotation and stops after a specified period of time or when the TH1 detect a specified temperature. The software DIPSW allows you to make a selection between the execution and the non-execution of this preparative rotation and to change the preparative rotation time. (2) Print control When printing on coated paper (62 g/m2 to 91 g/m2) or fine paper (50 g/m2 to 91 g/m2), and the start button is turned ON, the temperature of the thermistor /1 (TH1) is detected. When this temperature is in excess of a set temperature, M1 is rotated to cool down the temperature of the fusing roller. When the detected temperature is cooled down nearly to the set temperature, printing is started. A decision to conduct the preparative rotation control or not can be made in the utility mode. C. Speed stabilization To stabilize the speed, the gear shaft between the M1 and the fusing roller /Up is equipped with a flywheel. The inertia force of the flywheel stabilizes the speed of the fusing roller to minimize the transfer jitter on thick paper. D. Periodic rotation To prevent transfer jitter caused by the deformation of the fusing roller /Lw, a periodic rotation is made at a fixed intervals while in standby.

The fusing heating roller is heated by fusing heater lamp /3 (L4) when the temperature is 1C lower than a prescribed temperature (fixed) and turns OFF lamp /3 (L4) when it is 1C higher than a prescribed temperature for control. The heater lamp /2 (L3) is for flicker and does not turn ON. 15.3.4 II Composition/Operation Thick paper conveyance control

To prevent transfer jitter or a paper jam that is apt to occur when a double sided thick paper is used, the entrance guide plate can be moved by the thick paper assist solenoid (SD8). When paper length is less than 280 mm and the weight is more than 92 g/m2, or paper length more than 280 mm and more than 210 g/m2 is selected, the entrance guide plate is brought down. 15.3.5 Protection against an error

When the thermistor / 1 (TH1) detects a prescribed temperature (210C) 5 times at specified intervals, or the thermistor /2 (TH2) detects a prescribed temperature (240C), a message will display on the operation panel, fusing heater lamps /1 (L2) and /2 ((L3) turns OFF and copy operations stops. Thermostat /1 (TS1) also monitors an abnormal temperature rise. TS1 cuts off the fusing heater lamps /1 (L2) at a temperature of 180 7 C. When the thermistor /3 (TH3) detects a prescribed temperature (220C) 5 times at specified intervals, or the thermistor /4 (TH4) detects a prescribed temperature (240C), a message will display on the operation panel, fusing heater lamps /3 (L4) turns OFF and copy operations stop. Thermostat /2 (TS2) also monitors an abnormal temperature rise. TS2 cuts off the fusing heater lamps /3 (L4) at a temperature of 181 7 C. When TH1/TH2 does not come to a prescribed temperature (50C) a specified period of time after the main power switch (SW1) turns ON, L2/L3/L4 turn OFF and copy operations stop. When a fusing temperature abnormality like this occurs, the system gets into an SC latch condition. So, after identifying the cause of the error and repairing it, it is necessary to make the release and recovery operations with the software DIPSW 3-1.

When in the reverse paper exit and the ADU paper feed, the reverse gate [6] is opened when the reverse/exit solenoid (SD7) is OFF, and paper is conveyed to the ADU acceleration roller [8]. The paper that passed through the ADU acceleration roller is conveyed to the reverse/exit roller [10] according to the shape of the metal frame.

While in the ADU paper feed, paper is conveyed to the ADU paper feed section passing through the reverse/exit roller. Paper sent back by the reverse/exit roller is conveyed to the paper exit roller /1 [3], not to the ADU acceleration roller along the form of the metal frame. In this way, paper is turned over to be conveyed to the paper exit roller [5] through the paper exit roller /2 [4].

IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL

18. IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL


18.1 Outline
In order to realize the top quality print images at all times, this machine conducts various types of control for image stabilization. The operation of the image stabilization control varies according to the power switch (SW2) being turned ON or the print being in operation.

18.2.1

Image stabilization control flow when the power switch (SW2) is ON

The following shows the flow of the operation of the image stabilization control when the power switch (SW2) turns ON.

Power ON

G. Environmental decision control

A. Drum rotation

B. MPC/APC

C. Drum potential correction control (charging current, grid voltage, and developing bias adjustment)

D. Maximum density control (600 dpi)

F. Gamma correction control (600 dpi)

A. Drum rotation control (1) Purpose To prevent drum charge dissipation such as an image running at a high humidity. When left unused at a low or normal humidity, to prevent an uneven density due to the difference in sensitivity between the cleaning unit area and the developing unit area on the drum. (2) Method When the fusing temperature is below 50C with the power switch (SW2) ON, rotate the drum for 2 minutes 30 seconds, 30 seconds after completion of the charger cleaning operation during warm up. Then conduct the potential correction control, the maximum density control and the gamma correction control. When the fusing temperature is above 50C with the SW2 ON, and machine has been left unused for a long period of time, conduct the following operations based on the environmental decision values previously obtained. When at a high humidity, 1 minute after the SW2 turns ON, check the machine if it is in the fusing warm-up condition. When it is not in the Ready condition, rotate the drum for 2 minutes. When the fusing warm-up condition is completed within 1 minute after the SW2 turns ON, the machine is considered to be in the Ready condition at that time and no rotation of the drum is made. When it is considered that the humidity is low or normal, rotate the drum only to 70at a fixed cycle according to the temperature and the period of time for which the machine has been left unused. The drum is rotated at 3 minutes intervals when it has been left idling, and at 1 hour intervals when it is in the low power mode.

B. MPC (Max. Power Control)/APC (Auto Power Control) (1) Purpose To store the maximum power value emitted by the laser in the laser drive board (LDB) and maintain this light intensity in the APC operations. * The LDB automatically monitors the laser drive current for each line and a control operation is made so that the light intensity becomes the MPC value at all times. (2) Execution timing Executed when the power switch (SW2) is turned ON. After this, the MPC value is controlled by the dot diamII Composition/Operation eter adjustment control. C. Drum potential correction control (charging current, grid voltage, and developing bias adjustment) (1) Purpose To maintain the drum surface potential at a fixed condition at all times, without being influenced by the environmental conditions and the number of prints, the drum potential sensor (DPS) is provided for detection. (2) Method According to the measurement values of the potential after exposure, the developing bias potential and the potential before exposure the charge current, and grid voltage are controlled to the optimum values by taking into consideration the temperature and humidity, the drum counts and developer counts. The difference between the developing bias potential and the potential before exposure can be changed by the DIPSW 7-2 and 3. (3) Execution timing When the fusing temperature is below 50C with the SW2 on. Each time the job of 10,000 prints is completed after the above timing. Each time the PM counter counts up to 40,000 prints, and after completion of the job when the developing theta ratio gets to the reference value (the cycle can be changed by the DIPSW 6-5 and 6). D. Maximum density control (1) Purpose To maintain the maximum density of the image at a fixed condition at all times without being influenced by the environmental conditions and the number of prints. (2) Method Create several toner patches on the drum surface by changing the speed of rotation of the developing roller. Create these patches with the laser exposure time per dot (laser PWM) at the maximum value. Read this patch by the maximum density sensor and store the speed of rotation of the developing roller when the sensor output gets to the specified value, and create the image at this number of rotations. (3) Execution timing When the fusing temperature is below 50C with the SW2 ON. Each time the PM counter counts up to 40,000 prints, and after completion of the job when the developing theta ratio gets to the reference value (the cycle can be changed by the DIPSW 6-5 and 6).

To maintain the maximum density of the image at a fixed condition at all times without being influenced by the environmental conditions and the number of prints. (2) Method Create a toner patch on the drum surface, read the patch density with the maximum density sensor and change the speed of rotation of the developing roller according to the difference from the reference value. (3) Execution timing When more than 30 minutes have elapsed since the preceding job (the execution of the print, the maximum density adjustment control or the simplified maximum density adjustment control) has been made with the SW2 ON and the fusing temperature is above 50C with more than 1 minute warming-up completed. F. Gamma correction control II Composition/Operation

(1) Purpose To maintain the gradation of the image at a fixed condition at all times without being influenced by the environmental conditions and the number of prints. (2) Method Create several toner patches on the drum surface by changing the laser PWM. At this time, create a patch with the speed of rotation of the developing roller at the number decided by the maximum density control. Read this patch with the gamma sensor and create a gamma curve by arithmetic processing. (3) Execution timing When the fusing temperature is below 50C with the SW2 ON. After completion of the job when the developing theta ratio gets to the reference value. Each time the PM counter counts up to 40,000 prints, and after completion of the job when the developing theta ratio gets to the reference value (the cycle can be changed by the DIPSW 6-5 and 6). G. Environmental decision control (1) Purpose To detect the ambient temperature and humidity and feed back the findings to the various types of controls to maintain the image at a fixed quality. (2) Method The temperature sensor and the humidity sensor are provided inside the machine. (3) Execution timing With the power switch (SW2) ON, environmental decisions based on the measurement values are made only when it is considered that the machine has been left unused for more than 8 hours after the SW2 was turned OFF last time and the fusing temperature is below 50C.

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0 A. Toner density control (1) Method

IMAGE STABILIZATION CONTROL

Develop a toner patch on the drum once for every 5 prints after the SW1 turns ON, and read the patch density with the maximum density sensor. When the patch density is lower than the reference value, the operation varies depending on the developing theta (developing roller line speed/drum line speed). a. When the developing theta is lower than the reference value: Increase the number of rotations of the developing roller according to the patch density. b. When the developing theta is at the reference value: Drive the intermediate hopper motor (M11) only for the period of time calculated based on the patch density and the paper size, and replenish toner. B. Black belt creation control (1) Purpose To prevent deterioration of toner and stabilize the load on the cleaning blade, coat the entire drum image area with toner before cleaning the cleaning with blade. (2) Method Fluctuate the black belt creation width between 0.25 mm (much toner in supply) and 20 mm (little toner in supply). The minimum value of the black belt creation width can be changed by the DIPSW 6-3 and 6-4. (3) Execution timing The belt is created at the frequency of 3 times per 5 prints. C. Dot diameter correction control (1) Purpose To prevent the change in the diameter of a laser 1 dot due to the write system being soiled or the change in developing performance, and to obtain a stable image quality for a long period of time. (2) Method Create multiple dot pattern patches of a fixed density on the drum by changing the laser power value. At this time, create the patches while changing the MPC value with the laser PWM maximum. Read this dot pattern patch with the gamma sensor and store as the MPC value the laser power value obtained when the sensor output gets to the prescribed value. Until the next adjustment, use this selfing as the MPC value. (3) Execution timing After completion of a job of every 40,000 prints on the PM counter, and after completion of a job when the developing theta comes to the reference value. (The cycle can be changed by the DIPSW 6-5 and 6-6.) II Composition/Operation

IMAGE PROCESSING

This is the measure to obtain an even distribution from light of the CCD. The following corrections are made at the prescribed timing. a. White correction

The output voltage of each pixel of the CCD sensor when the white reference plate is exposed to the exposure lamp is stored as the maximum output of the pixel. b. Black correction II Composition/Operation The output voltage of each pixel of the CCD sensor when the exposure lamp is turned off is stored as the minimum output of the pixel. Conduct calculation to find out what step in this range falls on the image data read from the original based on the difference between the black and white data for each pixel stored in the steps a. and b. above, and output the results of the calculation in the 10 bits accuracy.

IMAGE PROCESSING

To make a copy of the original under the correct condition (to make a correct filter processing), check the read section to see if it is a character or a dot picture, and use the results at the image processing unit at the later stage. 19.1.4 Brightness/density conversion

The signal obtained after the shading correction is a signal corresponding to the light reflected from the original, and this is generally called a brightness signal.

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0

A. Filter processing An appropriate filter processing is made according to the type of an original and the magnification selected. (1) Character (2) Dot section (3) Picture : Make the shading of an original conspicuous. : Suppress moire. : Increase the reproducibility of gradation.

B. Magnification processing II Composition/Operation For this machine, the sub scan direction magnification is made by the scan speed of the exposure unit (platen mode) or by the conveyance speed of the DF (DF mode), and the main scan direction magnification is made by processing images electrically. (1) Main scan magnification processing while in enlargement As shown in the drawing below, if the data of each pixel obtained when the original is read by the CCD are D1 to D5, the positions of the data read when enlarged are E1 to E5. However, when the write is made only with the data thus read, the following problems occur. a. b. There occurs a clearance between data, and this results in a distored image. The data position does not fall in exactly with the write position.

As shown with dotted lines in the drawing below, when there is no read data that corresponds exactly to the write position, a density is decided for the write as shown below and appropriate processing is made.

IMAGE PROCESSING

As shown in drawing below, if the data of each pixel obtained when the original is read by the CCD are D1 to D5, the positions of the data read when reduced are R1 to R5. They are overlapping each other and do not correspond to the write position. Therefore, a density is decided for the write as shown below and an appropriate processing is made.

An appropriate density curve is provided for each of the character/picture/character and the picture/thin character modes. 19.1.7 Halftone processing (error diffusion)

To make effective use of the installed memory and obtain an excellent copy image, error diffusion processing is employed, which is one of the pseudo-intermediate processing methods. II Composition/Operation 19.1.8 Tilt adjustment

DF original skew auto adjustment Detect an uneven original skew amount for each DF original by the original skew sensors /Fr (PS312) and /Rr (PS311) and adjust the skew amount detected by the sensors by rotating the image data while in the image processing. 19.1.9 pressed. Two types of memories are provided. (Main memory: 256 MB, Sub memory: 64 MB) A part of the hard disk is used as an extended memory of the above. In this manner, more than 10,000 pages can be stored in the average word processor documents. 19.1.10 Storage of image data The image/setting of the originals read by the scanner or the images sent from the IC can be stored as a file in the hard disk in the main body.

E. Frequency conversion

A. Rotation/elongation Rotate the image in the direction of 90 degrees and 180 degrees as necessary. When outputting images from the memory, expand the compressed data to restore them to their original state. B. SGU The SGU is a function to generate various types of test patterns. C. 2dotPWM The laser writing is made normally in 1bitED (2-value error diffusion), but in the picture mode, 2bitED (4-value error diffusion) is employed to increase the gradation. (A change can be made between 1bit and 2bit by the DIPSW 11-5.) Since 2bitED reproduces the gradation in 4 values, small diameter laser dots are employed. However, since the drum surface potential in the small dot section is unstable, a dot is reproduced by the mean value of 2 adjoining dots to realize a smooth image. D. PWM The period of time the laser is turned ON is changed by changing the pulse width. E. Frequency conversion Write in the memory once the data after the PWM conversion and read it in accord with the write clock signal of the printer.

A specified period of time after the original registration sensor /Rt (PS318) [1] turns off, the conveyance roller [3] rotates in the reverse direction to get the leading edge of the original conveyed to the paper exit section back to the scan standby position [5]. The trailing edge of the original returned is conveyed to the paper exit tray (for large size) [2] according to the form of the conveyance guide plate. The reverse rotation of the conveyance roller stops a specified period of time after the original conveyance sensor (PS308) [4] detects the leading edge of the original.

After that, the same read (scan) operation as that in the normal mode is made. The original size detection operation for the second and succeeding originals varies according to a copy mode employed: the single sided copy mode or the double sided copy mode. Single sided copy mode: After the scan operation of the preceding original starts. Double sided copy mode: After the scan operation of the back side of the preceding original starts. 1.3.2 tion [1]. When the tray upper limit sensor (PS315) [4] turns ON, the M303 turns OFF to be put in the standby condition with the up/down plate left raised. The original comes into contact with the pick-up roller [3] to conduct the pick-up (paper feed) operation. Pick-up mechanism

PAPER FEED SECTION

A. Separation control Of the originals that have been fed by the pick-up roller, only one sheet of original is conveyed to the registration roller side by the original feed roller and the separation roller. Even when plural sheets of originals are fed, the separation roller makes a reverse rotation to convey a single sheet of original. B. SDF (single document feeder) control In the single document feeder mode, to improve the paper feedability of thick paper and other originals the paper feed of which is not guaranteed, the SDF switching solenoid (SD301) cuts off the drive of the separation roller to conduct the paper feed operation. 1.3.4 Multi feed detection control II Composition/Operation

The multi feed detection is made by using the multi feed sensor /1 (MFS1) and the multi feed sensor /2 (MFS2) which employ a method to check originals if they are multi fed based on the amount of the transmission of ultrasonic waves. The accuracy in the multi feed detection has been improved by using the multi feed sensor of the ultrasonic sensor, which supports the speed-up in the paper feed. The multi feed sensor is made up of a pair of a sender and a receiver. The following are originals the multi feed of which can be detected. Originals the main scan direction of which is in excess of 210 mm. Originals the main scan direction of which is less than 210 mm cannot be recognized due to the position of the sensor. Originals the weighing of which is between 50 g/m2 and 128 g/m2. Originals the weighing of which is beyond the range mentioned above may not be recognized even when multi fed. 1.3.5 Original empty detection control

The detection of the presence of original in the original tray section while in the scan stop is made by the original empty sensor (PS305). And also, the original empty detection while in the scan is made by the original count sensor (PS310) to stop the paper feed from the trays /1 to /5 after PS310 detects the trailing edge of the last original.

When the start button is turned ON [1], the tray up/down motor (M303) brings up the up/down plate until the tray upper limit sensor (PS315) ON on [2]. A specified period of time after the PS315 turns ON, the original feed motor (M302) is driven in a reverse rotation to convey the original to the registration roller. When the original registration sensor /Rt (PS318) turns ON, the up/down plate comes down by a fixed distance and a loop is formed until the original registration sensor /Lt (PS306) turns ON to adjust an original skew.

The mixed original sizes copy mode is applicable to both the same size originals and the different size originals. Since the size detection in the direction of the original feed is made according to the ON time of the original registration sensor /Rt (PS318), the size detection operation is made prior to the scan operation for each original. 2.3.3 Z-fold original mode control

In the Z-fold mode, the same detection operation as that in the mixed original sizes copy mode is made on the 1st sheet of original to determine the original size. For the 2nd and succeeding originals, the normal original conveyance is made. II Composition/Operation 2.3.4 Skew adjustment control

The original skew sensor /Rr (PS311) and the original skew sensor /Fr (PS312) are provided to make adjustments when the original is conveyed with its leading edge skewed. PS311 and PS312 are provided on the front side and the rear side of the conveyance path before scan to detect the amount of skew based on the time difference when the leading edge of the original turns ON these sensors. The amount of skew detected is adjusted by means of image processing. The relationship of the distance between the two sensors makes it effective only on original larger than A4R in width and the correction of the tilt angle up to 1.5C is made. 2.3.5 Centering adjustment

The leading edge of the original pre-fed is detected by the centering sensor /Rr (PS321) and the centering LED sensor /Rr (PS322). According to the timing of this detection, the side edge of the original is detected by the centering sensor /Fr (PS320) and the centering LED sensor /Fr (PS319) to determine the effective read area in the main scan direction. The width of the original size that can be detected is restricted only to A4 or 11 inch. However, PS320 is required to be positioned to the width of the original you want to detect. The maximum range that can be corrected is within 3 mm. When in excess of this range, only 3 mm is corrected. The centering adjustment control is invalid for original sizes other than A4 and 11 inch and in the mixed original mode. The sensor can detect any color in the original. 2.3.6 Cooling fan control

To prevent the original conveyance motor (M301) from getting too hot while in operation, the motor is cooled by the cooling fan /Lt (FM301). The cooling fan turns ON when the original feed is started, and it turns OFF when the original exit is completed. To prevent the original exit motor /1 (M304), the original exit motor /2 (M305), the RADF control board (RADFCB) and the tray up/down motor (M303) from getting too hot while in operation, these motors and board are cooled by the cooling fan /Rt (FM302).

A. Small size original When the gate solenoid (SD303) starts up, the flapper [3] closes and originals the front of which has been scanned are conveyed [2] to the reverse section by the reverse roller [1]. A specified period of time after the original reverse sensor (PS309) [7] turns OFF by detecting the trailing edge of the original, SD303 opens the paper exit gate [6] and the reverse paper feed [5] is made while rotating in the reverse direction at a low speed and then at a high speed to guide the original to the conveyance roller [4].

REVERSAL SECTION

When the gate solenoid (SD303) energizes, the flapper [5] is closed and the original the surface of which has been scanned is conveyed to the reversal section by the reverse roller [8]. The original conveyed to the reversal section [4], because it cannot be contained in the reversal section, is conveyed to the paper exit reversal section [2] by the reverse conveyance roller [9], the paper exit reverse roller [1]. At this time, the exit gate [10] is closed by the exit gate solenoid (SD304). The originals that have been conveyed to the reversal section and the paper exit reversal section are fed in reverse [6] in the same manner as small size originals. At this time, since the originals do not yet pass through the reverse roller [8], the reverse conveyance roller [9] even if they have reach the conveyance roller [7], after the reverse roller makes the reverse rotation, the pressure roller release solenoid (SD302) activates to release the pressure roller [3] for the reverse roller. The originals are released from the pressure roller and guided to the conveyance roller [7]. II Composition/Operation

PAPER FEED SECTION 1.3.2 Size detection control

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0

The paper size detection is made in the following two directions: a detection in the main scan direction and the sub scan direction. The size detection in the sub scan direction is made by the following each pair of the sensors: the paper size sensors /Fr1 (PS75) [4] and /Rr1 (PS76) [5] for tray /3, /Fr2 (PS81) [4] and /Rr 2 (PS82) [5] for tray /4, and /Fr3 (PS87) [4] and /Rr3 (PS88) [5] for tray /5. When the paper rear guide [6] is moved, the detection cams /Up [1] and /Lw [2] that are different in their form are pressed by the knob [5]. According to the position of the paper rear guide, the paper size sensors /Fr1 [4], /Fr2 [4] and /Fr3 [4] and Rr1 [3], /Rr2 [3] and /Rr3 [3] turn on and off. II Composition/Operation

The size in the main scan direction is detected by the paper size VR/1 (VR11), /2 (VR13) and /3 (VR15) that are interlocked with the paper guide. The main body is informed of the detection a specified period of time after the tray is set. For the resistance value, a default value is set through the "tray adjustment" in the service mode. 1.3.3 Pick-up mechanism

Paper is picked up when the pick-up solenoids /1 (SD14), /2 (SD15) and /3 (SD16) turn off. When the solenoids SD14, SD15 and SD16 turn off, the pick-up roller goes down to press paper by its own weight. When the paper feed clutches /1 (CL6), /2 (CL9) and /3 (CL12) turn on, the pick-up roller rotates to convey paper to the paper feed roller.

PAPER FEED SECTION 1.3.4 Separation mechanism

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0

The transmission of the driving force to the separation roller [4] transmits the driving force of the paper feed motor (M40) through the torque limiter [7] by turning on and off the separation clutches /1 (CL7), /2 (CL10) and / 3 (CL 13) [8]. The separation roller [4] is driven in the direction opposite to the paper conveyance. However, when no paper is conveyed and only one sheet of paper is conveyed, the frictional force generating between the paper feed roller [1] and the separation roller [4] or the paper and the separation roller is greater than the frictional force of the torque limiter [3]. Accordingly, the separation roller rotates in the direction of the paper conveyance to convey paper to the vertical conveyance section. II Composition/Operation When 2 or more sheets of paper are conveyed, the frictional force between these sheets of paper is smaller than the frictional force of the torque limiter and the separation roller rotates in the reverse direction to prevent the lower most paper from being conveyed. Tray /4 is provided with the forced separation clutch (CL11) [5] that forcibly rotates the separation roller [4] in the reverse direction not through the torque limiter [7].

PAPER FEED SECTION

When paper is slippery (or, when the power of conveyance is not sufficient), paper conveyed from the pick-up roller may be unable to pass through the separation sections of the paper feed roller and the separation roller. To alleviate a condition like this, the separation clutches /1 (CL7), /2 (CL10) and /3 (CL13) are not turned ON until paper gets to the separation section to remove the drive force to the separation roller, and allow it to function as a driven roller to the paper feed roller. After paper gets to the separation section, turn ON the CL7, CL10 and CL13 to conduct the normal separation operation. However, this control should be conducted as shown below. Type of paper: Coated paper B: Conducted unconditionally. conveyance at the separation section. B. Forced separation clutch control (tray /4 only) The forced separation clutch (CL11) is equipped only to the tray /4. When paper is conveyed to the separation roller, it rotates the separation roller momentarily in the reverse direction independent of the torque limiter for greater separation of paper. This control is automatically made only in the high temperature condition for coated paper A and B weighing more than 72 g/m2. However, the DIPSW26-4 can be used to select a high temperature as a condition for control.

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.2.0

Trays /3 to /5 are provided with paper feed assist fans that blow air [4] onto paper [3] from a pair of paper guides attached both in front and in the rear and assist the separation of paper. Tray /3 is provided with paper feed assist fans /Fr1 (FM41) [2] and /Rr1 (FM42) [1], tray /4 with paper feed assist fans /Fr2 (FM43) [2] and /Rr2 (FM44) [1], and tray /5 with paper feed assist fans /Fr3 (FM45) [2] and /Rr3 (FM46) [1]. Each of the paper feed assist fans is effective especially for thick paper, and paper with a high degree of adhesion (such as coated paper). However, fan assist using plain paper may result in improper paper feed.

A. Operation timing The operation of the paper feed assist fans /Fr1 (FM41), /Rr1 (FM42), /Fr2 (FM43), /Rr2 (FM44), /Fr3 (FM45) and /Rr3 (FM46) can be selected through the user setting on the operation panel from among the following three modes: Always ON, always OFF and Auto. While in the Auto mode, the paper feed assist fans is normally turned OFF. However, when the conveyance time from the start of the paper feed to the paper feed sensors /1 (PS72), /2 (PS783) and /3 (PS84) is in excess of a specified period of time, or when a no feed jam condition occurs, the paper feed assist fan of the corresponding tray is turned ON at that point of time. However, when a paper type other than the coated paper B is set and the separation roller functions as a driven roller to the paper feed roller by the control of the separation clutch, the paper feed assist fan remains OFF to prevent the multi feed of paper. The operations in this Auto mode can be reset by pulling out the tray (except for pulling out of the tray while in a jam), or turning OFF the power switch.

Tray lock control

Each of the trays is locked by the tray lock lever. When it is found that either of the handle release sensors /1 (PS74), /2 (PS80) and /3 (PS86) of the trays /3 to /5 turns off, the tray lock solenoids /1 (SD10), /2 (SD11) and /3 (SD12) of the corresponding tray turns on to bring up the tray lock lever and release the lock, thus allowing the tray to be pulled out. When it is found that any other sensor turns off while either of the sensors PS74, PS80 and PS86 turns off, none of the solenoids SD10, SD11 and SD12 other than the one that has already turned on turns on to prevent two or more trays from being pulled out at the same time. When a jam occurs that affects the tray and the exit conveyance section, the tray remains locked until the jammed paper is removed. Doing this prevents the paper from being torn off.

Operation
Pre-registration control

When paper feed starts, paper is sent out to the pre-registration roller by the pick-up roller and the paper feed roller. When paper strikes the pre-registration roller that is stationary, a loop is formed to adjust the skew of paper. When the pre-registration clutches /1 (CL1), /2 (CL3) and /3 (CL4) turn on, the driving force of the paper feed motor (M40) is transmitted to the pre-registration rollers 3/, /4 and /5 to convey paper in the direction of the main body. II Composition/Operation 2.3.2 Conveyance control

For the vertical conveyance, the driving force of the paper feed motor (M40) is transmitted by turning on and off the intermediate clutches /Up (CL2) and /Lw (CL5), and the pre-registration clutches /1 (CL1), /2 (CL3) and /3 (CL4). The exit conveyance is made by the PF exit conveyance motor (M41). Paper that is fed from tray /3 is conveyed to the conveyance rollers /1 and /2 driven through the pre-registration roller /3, CL2 that is in turn driven by the CL1, and then conveyed to the exit conveyance roller. When the loop sensor /1 (PS92) detects the trailing edge of paper, the CL2 turns off. Paper that is fed from tray /4 is conveyed to the exit conveyance roller by the pre-registration roller that is in turn driven by the CL3. Paper that is fed from tray /5 is conveyed to the conveyance rollers /4 and /3 through the pre-registration roller / 5, CL5 that is in turn driven by the CL4, and then conveyed to the exit conveyance roller. When the loop sensor /3 (PS98) detects the trailing edge of paper, the CL5 turns off. The exit conveyance roller is driven by the PF exit conveyance motor (M41). It starts to rotate at a low speed when the loop sensors /1 (PS92), 2/ (PS94) and /3 (PS98) detect paper, and turns off when the exit sensor (PS99) detects the trailing edge of paper.

Functions

A. Functions Normal paper exit function: Transfer paper exited from the main body is exited into the main tray/sub tray. Punching function: Folding function: Transfer paper that is exited by the main body or fed to the PI is punched for each sheet of paper and exited into the main tray/sub tray. Transfer paper that is exited from the main body or fed to the PI is handled for folding (either one of the following: Z-fold, Letter fold-out, Letter fold-in, Double parallel fold, Gate fold, and folding) for each sheet of paper, and exited into the sub tray/main tray (The Z-fold exit to the main tray while in the FS connection is limited only to B4, A3, 8.5 x 14, 11 x 17, 12 x 18 and 8K.) PI insertion function: Manual mode: PI tray paper is inserted in the transfer paper exited from the main body. PI tray paper is punched, folded and stapled, and then exited into the sub tray/ main tray. (The stapling function is available only when the staple unit is connected to the downstream of the FD.) B.

Operation
Conveyance path switching

The conveyance path of the paper that has been conveyed to the entrance guide plate varies according to the presence of a punch or folding, the tray into which paper is exited, and the paper size. The switching of the conveyance path is made by the entrance gate, the sub tray gate, the S size gate, the L size gate and the folding gate. (For the folding gate, see "3. Folding conveyance section.") A. Entrance gate Switching is made between the straight conveyance and the punch/folding conveyance by the entrance gate solenoid (SD1). In the case of the straight conveyance, the SD1 remains OFF. When conveying the 1st sheet of paper for punching/folding operation, SD1 is energized a specified period of time after the start button is turned ON. For the 2nd and the succeeding sheets of paper, SD1 is energized in accord with the conveyance direction of the succeeding page after the preceding page passes through the FD entrance sensor (PS1).

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

On paper conveyed to the punching position, an alignment operation is made by the 2 alignment plates to improve the accuracy of the punch hole positioning and the folding. And its home position is detected by the alignment plate home sensor (PS10). When the start button is turned ON, M12 rotates in the forward direction to move the alignment plates /Fr and /Rr to the standby position of the paper size. When the paper is conveyed to the punch position in a specified number of steps after it passes through the FD entrance sensor (PS1), the roller solenoid /1 (SD5), the roller solenoid /2 (SD6), the roller solenoid /3 (SD7) and the roller solenoid /4 (SD8) release the pressure of each roller and M12 conducts the alignment operation. The roller solenoids that release each of the rollers from pressure are modified according to the size and the II Composition/Operation direction of paper aligned. A specified period of time after completion of punching the last paper, M12 rotates in the reverse direction to bring the alignment plate back to the home position.

Operation

A. Punch control Punching is made by holding down the trailing edge of paper with the punch rear claw that is driven by the punch registration motor (M13), while driving the eccentric cam by the punch motor (M10). After alignment operations, the roller solenoids /1 to /4 are turned ON to let paper be placed in the unfixed condition. The paper, however, is held by the curvature of the conveyance section. And then, the punch registration motor (M13) rotates a specified number of steps and the punch rear claw holds the trailing edge of paper to move it to the punching position. After a specified period of time, the punch motor (M10) drives for punching. After completion of punching, M13 returns the punch rear claw to the home position. The position of the home position is detected by the punch registration home sensor (PS11). B. Punch hole switching control The punch hole is switched according to the rotational direction of the punch motor (M10). In the case of 2 holes, M10 rotates counterclockwise to drive the 2-hole punch edge. And in the case of 3 holes, M10 rotates clockwise to drive the 3-hole punch edge. The position of the 2-hole punch edge is detected by the 2-hole punch home sensor (PS8) and the position of the 3-hole punch edge is detected by the 3-hole/4-hole punch home sensor (PS9). C. Punch scraps box control The setting of the punch scraps box is detected by the punch scraps box set sensor (PS12), and the full condition of the punch scraps box is detected by the punch scraps full sensor (PS26).

This switching is made when the eccentric cam is driven by the 1st folding release motor (M14). After the 1st folding conveyance sensor (PS51) turns ON, the paper is conveyed by a specified number of steps. While the paper is being conveyed, the 1st folding roller gears /1 [1] and /2 [4] rotate in the same direction since these 2 gears are interlocked each other through the idle gear [2]. After conveying the paper by the prescribed number of steps, M14 rotates until it gets to a specified number of steps. This rotates the eccentric cam [5] to allow the idle gear arm [3] to separate the idle gear [2] from the 1st II Composition/Operation folding roller gears /1 [1] and /2 [4]. At the same time, when M14 starts up, the cam provided on the inside of the 1st roller gear /2 [4] rotates to allow the 1st roller gears /1 [1] and /2 [4] to contact each other closely to get the gears engaged.

After the paper is exited, PS20 maintains the distance between the upper surface of the paper exited in the main tray (the surface of the main tray when no paper exited) and the paper exit opening at a fixed distance to prevent the paper exited from having an uneven edge. B. Switching the operation of the main tray The main tray is set so that it normally does not operate. When letting the main tray operate, insert the short connector [2] into the CN90 [1].

For the up/down of the tray, when the paper lift motors /Up (M8) [1] and /Lw (M9) [7] rotate in the normal and reverse directions, the lift arms /Up [11] and /Lw [9] start up to bring up and down the PI lift plates /Up [12] and /Lw [10]. The lower limit position is detected by the PI lift plate home sensors /Up (PS34) [2] and /Lw (PS40) [8]. The upper limit position is detected by the PI upper limit sensors /Up (PS32) [4] and /Lw (PS38) [6] at the position to which the actuators /Up [3] and /Lw [5] are pushed up by the PI lift plate. When the PI paper set sensors /Up (PS44) and /Lw (PS45) are ON with the main body start button ON, M8 and M9 turn ON to bring up the PI lift plate. When PS32 and PS38 turn ON, M8 and M9 stop. While in the copy/print operation, when PS32 and PS38 turn OFF from ON, M8 and M9 turn ON again to bring II Composition/Operation up the plate until PS32 and PS38 turn ON. When PS44 and PS45 turn OFF with no paper left, M8 and M9 make a reverse rotation to move down the PI lift plate until PS34 and PS40 turn ON.

PI SECTION

The picking-up of the paper [6] is made when the PI pick-up solenoids /Up (SD13) and /Lw (SD14) [5] turn ON. The release arm that is pressed down by the spring [1] in the direction of [2] presses down the paper feed arm [4] to place the pick-up rollers /Up and /Lw [7] in the release condition. When SD13 and SD14 [5] turn ON, the release arm is released upward and the pick-up rollers /Up and /Lw [7] go down by their own weight. The pickup roller that is rotated by the PI conveyance motor (M7) presses down the paper to pick it up.

PI SECTION 6.3.4 Separation mechanism

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

The separation roller [4] is driven in the direction opposite to the paper conveyance [2]. However, when no paper is conveyed or only one sheet of paper is conveyed, the frictional force generating between the paper feed roller [1] and the separation roller [4] or the paper and the separation roller is greater than the frictional force of the torque limiter [3]. Accordingly, the separation roller [4] rotates in the direction of the paper conveyance [2] to convey paper to the vertical conveyance section. When 2 or more sheets of paper are conveyed, the frictional force between these sheets of paper is smaller than the frictional force of the torque limiter [3] and the separation roller [4] rotates in the reverse direction to prevent the lower most paper from being conveyed. II Composition/Operation When the PI registration clutches /Up (CL1) and /Lw (CL2) turn ON according to the PI paper feed demand signal, the paper feed roller [1], the separation roller [4], and the pick-up roller [7] rotate to convey the paper one at a time.

PI SECTION

To detect a multi feed while in the PI paper feed, the PI conveyance path is provided with the multi feed sensor. The multi feed sensor is a ultrasonic sensor made up of a pair of a sender and a receiver. This sensor receives ultrasonic waves sent from the multi feed detection board /1 (MFDB1) [1] by the multi feed detection board /2 (MFDB2) [2]. Based on the difference in the amount of ultrasonic waves received when a single sheet of paper [1] and the plural sheets of paper [4] pass through between the sender and the receiver, a check is made to see if paper has been multi fed or not. The multi feed detection function turns ON (operates) when the LED on the lower side is turned on by the multi feed detection function selection button on the FD operation board (FDOB) and when no selection is made. And it turns OFF (does not operate) when the LED on the upper side is turned on. II Composition/Operation

Paper empty detection control

The detection of the presence of paper in the tray section while in the print stop is made by the PI empty sensors /Up (PS33) and /Lw (PS39). And also, the paper empty detection while in the print is made by the PI set sensors /Up (PS44) and /Lw (PS45) to stop the paper feed from the trays /1 to /5 when PS44 and PS45 detect the trailing edge of the last paper.

Door open/close mechanism

While the LS is in operation, the front door is locked by the front door lock solenoid (SD4), thus making it impossible to open and close it. However, while in the coupling conveyance (coupling mode) or while exiting paper into the sub tray (sub tray mode), the front door can be opened and closed. Pressing the paper removing switch on the stacker tray operation board (TOB) brings down the stacker tray. And when the stacker tray arm release sensor (PS15) is turn on, SD4 turns off immediately. The lock is released due to SD4 being turned off and the front door can be opened and closed. II Composition/Operation 1.3.2 Jam release lever lock mechanism

ENTRANCE CONVEYANCE SECTION 2.3.3 Paper cooling mechanism

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

Paper conveyed to the LS is likely to curl up due to fusing heat. Heat storage accumulated in paper stacked during continuous printing may cause tacking (sheets of paper sticking hard each other by toner) when toner that has been fused is re-fused and adheres. So, fresh air is blown on the paper from under the entrance guide plate and above the path guide of the upper surface of the paper stack section, thus cooling down the paper to correct curling and prevent tacking.

Operation
Stacker tray conveyance

While in the stacker tray non-sort mode and the stacker tray sort mode, paper is conveyed into the stacker tray. A. Decurler Paper that has passed through the 1st gate is conveyed to the grip belt by the decurler roller. At this time, the correction of curled paper is made by the decurler roller. B. Grip conveyance Paper conveyed by the decurler roller enters and is help by the grip provided on the grip belt. The paper held by the grip is conveyed to the section above the stacker tray by the rotation of the grip belt. Two grips are provided on the grip belt and each one of them conveys paper one after the other. The position where the grip is waiting for paper from the decurler roller is controlled by the grip conveyance home sensor (PS5). II Composition/Operation

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

Paper conveyed by the grip strikes against the front stopper equipped to the shift unit and is released from the grip. At this time, the shift unit has been moved to the position specified in advance for each paper size. Two types of the front stoppers, more specifically, a movable type and a stationary type, are employed. In stacker tray non-sort mode, only the movable type front stopper is employed. A distance of 20 mm is kept between the position where the movable type front stopper stops and the position in which the stationary type front stopper is, which is the shift distance. For the front stopper solenoid (SD9) that drives the movable type front stopper, a latch-type solenoid is employed that is not required to be energized to maintain the ON state. However, a latch-type solenoid requires II Composition/Operation a different control signal for each ON and OFF action.

CONVEYANCE SECTION D. Job partition plate

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

In stacker tray sort mode, the trailing edge of the shift paper is restricted by the job partition plate and the paper is exited onto the stacker tray 20 mm shifted from the non-shift paper. At this time, the upper surface of the nonshift paper does not come to the same level as the lower edge of the job partition plate and the 1st sheet of the shift paper is in possibility of getting into the lower side of the job partition plate. To prevent this, the job partition plate is attached to the upper surface of the non-shift paper that has been exited to restrict the entry of the paper. For the job partition solenoid (SD2) that drives the job partition plate, a latch-type solenoid is employed that is not required to be energized to maintain the ON state. However, a latch-type solenoid requires a different control II Composition/Operation signal for each ON and OFF action.

While in the stacker tray sort mode is in shifting, the rear stopper is left open and this plays as a guide for the trailing edge of paper. To assist the separation of paper released from the grip, the paddle is rotated at a high speed. For the rear stopper solenoid (SD3) that drives the rear stopper, a latch-type solenoid is employed that is not required to be energized to maintain the ON state. However, a latch-type solenoid requires a different control signal for each ON and OFF action.

CONVEYANCE SECTION

The detection of the upper surface of paper loaded on the stacker tray is made by the paper empty sensor (PS6) through the paper press arm /3. When PS6 is turned off by loading paper that has been exited, the stacker tray up down motor (M1) turns on to lower the stacker tray down to the position at which PS6 turns on. The stacker tray is thus held at a fixed height when paper is being exited. The number of sheets of paper loaded on the stacker tray is detected by the 2000 sheets stacked sensor (PS13) and the 5,000 sheets stacked sensor (PS14) provided on the up down path of the stacker tray and displayed on the operation panel. I. Hand cart detection mechanism II Composition/Operation

The set condition of the hand cart is detected by the hand cart set switch (RS1). And the set condition of the stacker tray is detected by checking to see if the light from the stacker tray set LED (LED1) gets to the stacker tray set sensor (PS1). 3.3.2 Coupling conveyance

In coupling mode, paper is conveyed to the device connected to the subsequent stage of the LS through the coupling conveyance section. A. Line speed switching When paper is conveyed from the main body, the conveyance motor (M2) at the entrance conveyance section is rotated at the same speed as the conveyance speed of the main body. When paper is conveyed to the LS, the speed of rotation of M2 is increased up to 1,000 mm/s to convey paper. 3.3.3 Sub tray conveyance

In sub tray mode, paper is exited into the sub tray. A. Line speed switching

Operation
Conveyance path switching

A. Tray gate control The tray gate switches the paper conveyance path between the main tray and the sub tray. The tray gate is normally set to the conveyance path to the main tray. When paper is exited to the sub tray, however, the gate is switched to the path to the sub tray through the drive of the solenoid (SD2). B. Bypass gate control The bypass gate is provided on the paper path to the stacker section. Even while in the staple operation, the bypass gate conveys the next page to reduce a loss of time for a high productivity. The drive of the bypass gate [1] is made by the bypass solenoid (SD5) [2]. The operation of SD5 is limited only to the small-sized paper (A4, B5 and 8.5 x 11) in the staple mode. For the 1st page on and after the 2nd copy, paper is sent to the regular route [3]. SD5 operates only on the 2nd page to send paper to the bypass route [4]. The 1st and 2nd pages are put upon one another to be conveyed to the stacker simultaneously. On and after the 3rd page, SD5 is released and paper is sent on the regular route a sheet of paper at a time. II Composition/Operation

A specified period of time after the FNS entrance sensor (PS4) detects the trailing edge of the 1st page of the 2nd copy, the bypass solenoid (SD5) turns ON to draw the 2nd page of the 2nd copy into the bypass route. A specified period of time after the PS4 detected the trailing edge of the 2nd page of the 2nd copy, the bypass solenoid turns OFF. SD5 does not turn on when the 3rd and subsequent pages are being conveyed.

Operation
Stacker conveyance speed control

Paper conveyed by the conveyance motor (M1) is sent to the stacker when the stacker entrance motor (M13) is decelerated a specified period of time after the stacker entrance sensor (PS5) turns ON and before it runs through the stacker entrance roller. 3.3.2 II Composition/Operation Intermediate roller control

The roller drive of the intermediate roller /Lw is transmitted from the main tray paper exit motor (M7) by the belt and the coupling, and the transmission of the conveyance power to paper is made by the pressure/release of the intermediate roller /Up. A. Non-staple mode control While in the non-staple mode, when the start button is turned ON, the intermediate roller /Up [1] is driven up to the nip standby position by the cam [2] of the intermediate roller open close motor (M25). The home position of the intermediate roller /Up open/close operation is detected by the intermediate roller home sensor (PS33) [3].

STACKER SECTION

The stack assist plate is a paper pressure plate that is used to increase the speed to put paper in the stacker for an increased productivity. The stack assist plate [1] is driven by the stack assist motor (M24). When being conveyed to the stacker section, each sheet of paper is pressed at the position near the rear end of the paper [2] to be stacked at a speed faster than a free fall. The stack assist plate is driven by 65 from the home position in the staple mode and by 80 in the shift and straight mode. The home position is detected by the stack assist home sensor (PS32) [3].

STACKER SECTION 3.3.4 Rear stopper control

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

The rear stopper is a paper rear stopper when paper is exited in the non-staple (straight/sort) mode. This shortens the conveyance distance to the main tray for an improved productivity. The rear stopper is driven and released by the rear stopper motor (M26) in the staple mode. The set state in the non-staple mode (the position at which paper is stopped by the rear stopper) is the home position of the rear stopper and this is detected by the rear stopper home sensor (PS35). 3.3.5 II Composition/Operation Alignment control

A. Horizontal alignment The horizontal alignment is made by the 2 alignment plates, that is, alignment plate /Fr and alignment plate /Rr. These 2 alignment plates are driven independently by each of the alignment motor /Fr (M22) and the alignment motor /Rr (M5). The home position of the alignment plate /Fr is detected by the alignment home sensor /Fr (PS31) and that of the alignment plate /Rr is detected by the alignment home sensor /Rr (PS8). (1) Straight mode In the straight mode, each sheet of paper sent to the stacker is aligned by the alignment plate /Fr and the alignment plate /Rr before being exited to the straight position.

Operation
Stapler movement control

For stapler movements, there are two types, that is, the horizontal movement of the stapler intervals and the rotation of the stapler /Rr. Movement is made according to the staple mode. The horizontal movement of the stapler is made by the stapler movement motor (M11). The stapler /Rr and the stapler /Fr are fixed on the upper side and the lower side of a belt that forms a loop and moved respectively in the opposite direction by the motor M11. The home position of the horizontal movement is detected by the stapler movement home sensor (PS11). II Composition/Operation The 45 rotational movement of the stapler /Rr for the one-corner stapling at rear is made by the stapler rotation motor (M4). The home position of the rotational movement is detected by the stapler rotation home sensor (PS14). A. 1 staple (1) 1 staple/at front When the start button is turned ON, the stapler movement motor (M11) also turns ON to move the stapler to the position according to the paper size. (2) Size movement in 1 staple/one-corner stapling at rear When the start button is turned ON, the stapler movement motor (M11) turns ON to move the stapler to the position according to the paper size. After a specified period of time, the stapler rotation motor (M4) also turns ON to rotate the stapler /Rr and move it diagonally. When a staple empty condition of the stapler /Rr is detected at the one-corner stapling at rear, M4 is driven to replace the cartridge and the stapler is returned to its vertical position. B. 2 staples When the start button is turned ON, the stapler movement motor (M11) also turns ON to move the stapler to the position according to the paper size.

Sub-set staple control Sub set staple control avoids exited papers misalignment when sub set staple is used. Paper holding arm is driven by paper exit solenoid (SD9). When stapled sheets of paper are exited, paper holding arm presses previously exited sheets since they are misaligned by staples. When exiting sheets without staple, paper holding arm does not operate. As control timing, SD9 is turned ON by staple operation. In predetermined time after stapled sheets go through stacker empty sensor (PS20), SD9 is turned OFF.

MAIN TRAY SECTION 5.3.2 Main tray up/down control

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

The driving force of the tray up down motor (M3) rotates the up/down pulley by the belt and the gear to wind up the up/down wire. The main tray goes up or down according to the direction in which the up/down wire is wound up. When the up/down pulley /Lw rotates clockwise as seen from the front, the main tray goes up and when it rotates counterclockwise, the tray goes down. A. Non-staple up/down control According to the FS operation signal from the main body, the tray up down motor (M3) raises the tray until the tray upper limit sensor (PS2) turns ON. II Composition/Operation When paper passes through the main tray paper exit sensor (PS10), M3 lets down the tray. M3 raises up the tray again a specified period of time after PS2 turns OFF and stops it when PS2 turns ON. The above steps are repeated for each sheet of paper.

MAIN TRAY SECTION

The tray upper limit sensor (PS2) and the stapler paper exit upper limit sensor (PS7) maintain the distance between the upper surface of the paper exited in the main tray (or the main tray upper surface when no paper is exited) and the paper exit opening at a specified distance to prevent any uneven paper exit from occurring. While in the continuous print mode, the FS uses a software to count the number of sheets of paper exited and stops printing when the count reaches the maximum number of sheets loadable for each paper size. However, when paper has been exited is removed while in printing, the tray goes up to turn ON the counter reset sensor (PS15). This resets the software counter, thus allowing paper to be exited without limit. The tray lower limit sensor (PS3) detects the lowest limit of the tray. In the intermittent copy mode, the total number is not added up by the software counter and the PS3 is used to restrict the number of sheets of paper. II Composition/Operation

Operation
Conveyance path switching operation

A. Entrance gate solenoid control The entrance gate switches the path to the horizontal conveyance section and one to the right angle conveyance section. The switch is conducted by the entrance gate solenoid (SD1). The right angle conveyance path is selected when SD1 turns OFF and the horizontal conveyance path is selected when it turns ON. In the coupling exit mode and the subtray exit mode, SD1 turns ON and sets the entrance gate to the horizontal conveyance section when the main body print signal turns ON. SD1 turns OFF after the paper exit. II Composition/Operation B. Horizontal conveyance gate control The horizontal conveyance gate switches the path to the subtray section and the coupling conveyance path to the succeeding device. The switch is conducted by the horizontal conveyance gate solenoid (SD3). The coupling conveyance path is selected when SD3 turns OFF and the subtray path is selected when it turns ON. 1.3.2 (M2). M1 and M2 turn ON when the main body start signal [1] turns ON. M1 switches its rotational speed in accordance with the main body line speed [3] when the main body exit sensor turns ON [2]. Then it switches its rotational speed to high speed [4] to convey the paper when it receives the paper trailing edge signal (when the paper trailing edge passes through the fusing).

The first stacked sheet of paper [5] is conveyed while the overlap stopper is located at the standby position [4]. Before conveying the second paper, right angle conveyance gate solenoid (SD2) turns ON to move the right angle conveyance gate [6] to the right [7]. At the time, overlap motor (M13) moves the overlap stopper 30 mm upward [3]. It transfers the stacked paper to the left side of the right angle conveyance gate. The right angle conveyance gate is replaced [9] to clear the conveyance path. The subsequent paper [8] passes the right side of the right angle conveyance gate and the paper is overlapped in adequate order. Then, M13 moves the overlap stopper downward [1].

RIGHT ANGLE CONVEYANCE SECTION

In the multi letter folding mode, up to 5 sheets are stacked in the right angle conveyance section and conveyed to the folding section. The multi letter folding is available only with paper of 50 to 91 g/m2 in weight and is unavailable with others. The overlap motor (M13) turns ON when the main body start signal [1] turns ON and moves the overlap stopper upward to its standby position. Turning ON the right angle conveyance gate solenoid (SD2) [3] after a specified period of time since the entrance sensor (PS1) detects the trailing edge of the paper, the right angle conveyance gate is switched, M13 moves the paper upward [4], and isolate the paper from the conveyance gate by transferring it to the left side of the right angle conveyance gate. Turning OFF SD2 [5], the conveyance gate opens and waits for the subsequent paper. Conveying the subsequent paper through the right side of the right angle conveyance gate [6] and detecting the trailing edge of paper by the entrance sensor (PS1) [7], M13 moves the overlap stopper downward [8]. When the trailing edge of paper passes under the right angle conveyance gate, SD2 turns ON [9] to switch the right angle conveyance gate and M13 moves up the overlap stopper [10] to send the conveyed sheets of paper to the left side of the right angle conveyance gate. Then, SD2 turns OFF [11] and stands by for the subsequent paper. The overlap stopper moves down to the standby position and stands by for the 1st paper of the subsequent set [12] after a specified period of time since PS1 detects the trailing edge of last paper of the set.

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

In the center folding and saddle stitching modes, 1, 2, or 3 sheets of paper are stacked and conveyed to the folding section. The number of the stacked sheets is different depending on its paper weight and the conveyance pattern. Normal paper (less than 130 g/m2): up to 3 sheets are stacked and conveyed to the folding section. Thick paper (more than 131 g/m2): due to the limit of the folding performance, up to 2 sheets are stacked and conveyed to the folding section. Normal paper II Composition/Operation For the 1st set, 2 sheets of paper are stacked and conveyed to the folding section at first. Similarly, 2 sheets of paper are stacked and conveyed to the folding section for the subsequent sheets. At the final conveyance, 2 sheets are conveyed (if the total number of the paper is even) or 1 sheet is conveyed (if the number is odd). It does not convey 3 sheets at a time for the odd case because the timing to transmit the information such as the page count, the paper type, and so on is too late when the printing is conducted from a PC. For the 2nd and following set, 3 sheets of paper are stacked and conveyed to the folding section at first to take adequate time to conduct the folding operation for the preceding set. At the final conveyance, 2 sheets are conveyed (if the total number of the paper is even) or 3 sheets are conveyed (if the number is odd). Thick paper Up to 2 sheets of paper can be stacked for the thick paper. For every set, 2 sheets of paper are stacked and conveyed to the folding section at first. Similarly, 2 sheets of paper are stacked and conveyed to the folding section for the subsequent sheets. At the final conveyance, 2 sheets are conveyed (if the total number of the paper is even) or 1 sheet is conveyed (if the number is odd). Using PI function The same as the thick paper control is conducted because the paper type information cannot be obtained in the print job using PI.

RIGHT ANGLE CONVEYANCE SECTION

A. Right angle conveyance mechanism In the right angle conveyance, the right angle conveyance motor (M6) and the roller release solenoids /1 (SD5) [5] and /2 (SD6) [10] convey the paper. When conveying the paper to the overlap section, the paper falls vertically [6] to the overlap stopper [7] by its own weight. At the time, the press by the right angle conveyance roller /1 [3] is released by default since the conveyance direction is not the rotational direction of the right angle conveyance roller /1 [3] but the axial direction of the right angle conveyance roller /1. After stacking and aligning the specified number of papers, the roller release solenoid /1 (SD5) [5] turns ON to nip the paper and convey the paper to the position rotated 90 from the right side to the front side [8]. The roller release solenoid /3 (SD7) [14] is OFF to release the pressure of the folding entrance roller by default since the upper edge of the paper [1] passes over the folding entrance roller [13]. When conveying the paper from the right angle conveyance section to the folding section [12], the roller release solenoid /2 (SD6) [10] turns ON to release the pressure of the right angle conveyance roller /4 [9] and convey the paper to the folding section by nipping the paper with the folding entrance roller [13].

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

A. Mechanism In the folding main scan alignment, the alignment stoppers /Rr [5] driven by the folding main scan alignment motor /Rr (M14) stop at the appropriate position in accordance with the paper size, and then the alignment claws /Fr [2] driven by the folding main scan alignment motor /Fr (M7) conduct the alignment operation. The home position of the alignment claws /Fr is detected by the folding main scan alignment home sensors /Fr1 (PS18) [8] and /Fr2 (PS49) [7] and the home position of the alignment tab /Rr is detected by the folding main scan alignment home sensor /Rr (PS19) [4]. The alignment claws /Fr [2] convey [6] the paper by pushing its trailing edge once the paper passes the folding II Composition/Operation entrance roller /3 [3] and until the leading edge of paper contacts with the alignment stopper /Rr [5] because there is no conveyance roller between the folding entrance conveyance roller /3 and the alignment stopper /Rr.

FOLDING SECTION

The folding main scan alignment motor /Rr (M14) drives the alignment stoppers /Rr to the appropriate position in accordance with the paper size when the main body start signal [1] turns ON. The folding main scan alignment motor /Fr (M7) rotates in the forward direction to let [3] the alignment claws /Fr push the trailing edge of paper for conveyance after a specified period of time since the folding entrance sensor (PS60) detects the trailing edge of paper, and then M7 stops after a specified period of time [4]. The alignment stoppers /Rr push the leading edge of paper to conduct the alignment. M7 rotates in the reverse direction [5], and after a specified period of time it rotates in the forward direction to conduct the alignment again [6]. M7 rotates in the reverse direction to replace the alignment claws to the home position [7] when the 1st folding blade home sensor /1 (PS20) detects the completion of the folding operation. M7 starts rotating to replace the alignment claws to the home position for subsequent set when PS21 detects the completion of the folding operation since the 1st folding blade conducts the reciprocal operation in which the 1st folding blade home sensor / 1 (PS20) and the 1st folding blade home sensor /2 (PS21) counter changes their positions at each folding operation. M7 stops rotating when the folding main scan alignment home sensor /Fr1 (PS18) detects the home position of the alignment claws.

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

A. Mechanism Folding consists of the 1st folding and 2nd folding. The 1st folding is conducted in the multi letter folding mode, the multi center folding mode, and the saddle stitching mode. The 2nd folding is conducted only in the multi letter folding mode. In the 1st folding operation, the 1st folding blade [7] pushes and inserts the paper between the folding rollers /1 [8] and /2 [3]. The folding rollers /1 and /2 are pressured each other by the spring [2]. The 1st folding blade is driven by the 1st blade motor (M18) [4] via the crank mechanism [5]. In the 2nd folding operation, the 2nd folding blade [13] pushes and inserts the paper between the folding rollers /2 [3] and /3 [14]. The folding rollers /2 and /3 are pressured each other by the spring [15]. The 2nd folding blade is driven by the 2nd blade motor (M19) [10] via the crank mechanism [11]. The folding sensor /2 (PS44) [9], the folding sensor /1 (PS7) [1], and the folding passage sensor (PS8) [12] detect the paper.

FOLDING SECTION

After the initial operation, the 1st folding blade [8] is at the standby position /1 [5]. In the actuator [7], the 1st folding blade home sensor /2 (PS21) [3] turns ON and the 1st folding blade home sensor /1 (PS20) [6] turns OFF. When the paper [9] is conveyed to the folding section and the 1st folding blade motor (M18) is rotated [2], the crank [4] rotates 90 to project the 1st folding blade to the paper and push the paper [12] between the folding roller /1 [10] and /2 [11] with its edge. At the time, the actuator also rotates 90 so that PS21 [3] and PS20 [6] turns OFF and ON respectively. M18 keeps rotating in the same direction [13], and then the crank [4] stops when it reaches at the standby position /2 [1] (PS20 turns OFF) where is 180 opposite from the standby position /1. In the 1st folding operation for the subsequent set, M18 rotates in the reverse direction [14] and the crank [4] also rotates 180 in the reverse direction to conduct the 1st folding operation.

FOLDING SECTION

A. Mechanism The folding sub scan alignment operation is conducted in the multi letter folding mode and is conducted with the folding exit claws [13] and the folding alignment stoppers /Rt [3] driven by the folding sub scan alignment exit motor (M8) [8]. The folding exit claws move to the right [14] and the folding alignment stoppers /Rt move to the left [2] when M8 rotates in the reverse direction [9]. The folding alignment stoppers /Rt are contacted with the alignment stopper [1] and stopped by the torque limiter [7]. The folding exit claws move to the positions for the paper width of A4R or 8.5 x 11R and conduct the folding sub scan alignment operation, and then the folding is conducted. In the multi center folding mode and the saddle stitching mode, M8 rotates in the forward direction to move the folding exit claws to the left [11] after the folding operation. Once the folding exit claws make a round, they conduct the paper exit operation to the saddle stitching section. At the time, the folding alignment stoppers /Rt moving to the right [4] are contacted with the alignment stopper [5] and stopped by the torque limiter [7]. The home position of the folding exit claws in the alignment operation is detected by the folding sub scan alignment home sensor (PS56) [12].

Saddle stitching alignment control

A. Mechanism In the saddle stitching alignment, the saddle stitching alignment plates /Lt [2] and /Rt [8] align the center folded paper [5] in the sub scan direction. The saddle stitching alignment motor /Lt (M16) [3] drives the saddle stitching alignment plate /Lt [2] in the sub scan direction via the belt by rotating in the forward and reverse directions. The saddle stitching alignment plate /Lt moves to the position for the appropriate paper size when the main body start signal turns ON, and it does II Composition/Operation not move during the print operation. It return to the position at the saddle stitching alignment home sensor /Lt (PS29) [4] after the print operation. The saddle stitching alignment motor /Rt (M9) [7] drives the saddle stitching alignment plate /Rt [8] in the sub scan direction via the belt by rotating in the forward and reverse directions. The alignment operation is conducted by M9 by rotating in the forward and reverse directions every time the center folded paper is conveyed. It return to the position at the saddle stitching alignment home sensor /Rt (PS28) [6] after the print operation.

The saddle stitching alignment motor /Lt (M16) rotates in the reverse direction when the main body start signal [1] turns ON and the saddle stitching alignment plate /Lt moves to the position for the appropriate paper size [2]. The saddle stitching alignment motor /Rt (M9) rotates in the forward direction and the saddle stitching alignment plate /Rt conducts the preliminary alignment operation [4] when the folding sensor /2 (PS44) at the exit of the folding section detects the trailing edge of the paper [3]. Then, M9 rotates in the forward direction to conduct the alignment operation [5] when the paper is stacked at the stapler position. After a specified period of time, M9 rotates in the reverse direction to go back the saddle stitching alignment plate to its home position and stands by for the subsequent set [6]. For the last paper of the set [7], M9 rotates in the reverse direction to go back the saddle stitching alignment plate to its home position when the saddle stitching press motor (M21) [8] is completed with holding the paper.

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

A. Mechanism The staplers/clinchers move to the stapling position in accordance with the paper size. The stapling position is different for every paper size to make the stapling distance half of the paper size. The staplers /Rt [10] and /Lt [8] are fixed to the belt /Up [9] and the clinchers /Rt [2] and /Lt [4] to the belt /Lw [1]. They are moved in the sub scan direction by the stapler movement motor (M15) [5] via the connecting shaft [6]. To prevent the tooth skipping of the belts /Up and /Lw at the maintenance, the gear-shaped rotating knob [7] is provided on the connecting shaft [6]. Rotating the knob, you can manually move the staplers /Rt and /Lt and the clinchers /Rt and /Lt simultaneously. II Composition/Operation

SADDLE STITCHING SECTION

A. Mechanism The saddle stitching hold is the mechanism to prevent the paper misalignment at stapling. The saddle stitching hold /Up [1] moves down to the saddle stitching hold /Lw [2] at its lower position and hold the center folded paper [3] at the fold line from both up and down.

The saddle stitching hold /Up [6] is enforced by the spring [3] toward the saddle stitching hold /Lw [5]. When the saddle stitching press motor (M21) rotates the eccentric cam [2] via the gear [1], the arm [4] moves along with the shape of the eccentric cam and the saddle stitching hold /Up is lowered by the spring [3]. The saddle stitching hold /Up [6] holding the center folded paper at its lower position is pushed up to its upper position by the saddle stitching hold /Lw [5] during the stapling operation. This allows the paper to be moved from the lower position to the upper position without any misalignment. The saddle stitching press home sensor (PS27) [8] detects the home position of the eccentric cam.

A. Mechanism The stapler operation is conducted by the stapler motors /Rt (M29) and /Lt (M30) [10] and the clincher solenoids /Rt (SD9) and /Lt (SD10) [5]. The stapler operation is detected by the stapler home sensors /Rt (HS1) and /Lt (HS3) [8] and the clincher start sensors /Rt (HS2) and /Lt (HS4) [11]. HS1, HS2, HS3, and HS4 are hall element sensors and control the position of the magnet [12] of the rotating eccentric cam [9]. M29 and M30 [10] drive the staple bending arm [3] and the stapling arm [2] via the eccentric cam [9]. The staple bending arm bends the rolled staple [6] into the U-shape and the stapling arm staples it toward the clincher. Then the SD9 and SD10 bend the staple by driving the clincher plate [4]. The stapling operation is completed by these operations. The staple empty switches /Rt (SW1) and /Lt (SW2) [7] detect whether the staple or cartridge is set or not. II Composition/Operation

C. Bundle arm control The bundle arm motor (M10) rotates in the reverse direction when the main body start signal [1] turns ON and moves the bundle arm to the appropriate position in accordance with the paper size. The bundle arm rotation motor (M22) rotates in the forward direction to rotate the bundle arm to the stapling section [3] after a specified period of time since the folding sensor /2 (PS44) detects the trailing edge of paper of the last set. It stops the bundle arm in an upright position [4] when the bundle arm rotation home sensor (PS31) turns OFF. Then, M22 rotates again [5] to drive the bundle arm until it is contacted with the guide plate on the stapling section [6]. The timing for M22 to restart the rotation [5] is different between in the multi center folding mode and in the saddle stitching mode. Multi center folding mode: When the saddle stitching press home sensor (PS27) detects the saddle stitching hold /Up has been moved to the its upper position. Saddle stitching mode: After a specified period of time since the clincher up down home sensor (PS26) detects that the clinchers are contacted with the staplers. M10 inserts the tip of the bundle arm under the fold line of the paper [7] when the bundle arm assist motor (M26) starts the assisting operation by pushing up the trailing edge of paper at the back side and M10 stops after a specified period of time [8]. M22 rotates in the reverse direction to convey the paper to the bundle clip section when M10 stops [8]. It stops after a specified period of time since PS31 turns ON. M10 rotates in the forward direction to pull out the bundle arm from the paper and take shelter it from the conveyance path [11] after a specified period of time since the bundle clip starts to catch the paper [10]. M10 stops when the bundle arm home sensor (PS32) turns ON [12].

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

A. Mechanism The bundle arm assist mechanism is the mechanism to assist the paper conveyance of the bundle arm rotation drive to be conducted without fault. It pushes up the fore edge side of the paper [6] with the bundle arm assist plate [4] to tilt it to the front. The bundle arm assist motor (M26) [2] drives the bundle arm plate [4] via the belt. The bundle arm assist upper limit sensor (PS39) [1] detects the upper home position and the bundle arm assist home sensor (PS38) [3] detects the lower home position. The bundle arm assist plate [4] waits at the position 5 mm below the fore edge side of the paper during standby. II Composition/Operation To keep the error to a minimum, the small size paper (313 mm or less) and the large size paper (314 mm or more) are moved to the standby position from the position of PS39 and PS38 respectively since the standby position for the paper is positioned by the driving time of M26 (DC brush motor). In the bundle arm assist operation, the fore edge side of the paper is pushed up 35 mm (or until PS39 turns ON).

SADDLE STITCHING SECTION

For the small size paper, the bundle arm assist motor (M26) rotates in the forward direction when the main body start signal [1] turns ON to drive the bundle arm assist plate at the home position to the position at the bundle arm assist upper limit sensor (PS39) [2]. After a specified period of time, M26 rotates in the reverse direction to drive the bundle arm assist plate from the upper limit position to the standby position in accordance with the paper size [3] and stands by for the paper. Then, M26 rotates in the forward direction to push up the fore edge side of the paper [6] for assisting the bundle arm to be inserted under the fold line of the paper. The operation timing [6] of M26 is different between in the multi center folding mode and in the saddle stitching mode. Multi center folding mode: When the bundle arm is contacted with the guide plate of the stapler section [4] by the bundle arm rotation motor (M22). Saddle stitching mode: When the clincher moves downward [5] at the end of the stapling operation. M26 rotates in the forward direction to assist the bundle arm to convey the paper [7] after a specified period.

BUNDLE PROCESSING SECTION

The bundle press stage up down motor (M24) [12] rotates the wire winding shaft [14] and winds up the up down wire [3]. During the initial phase, the wire is tightened and the wire arm [4] comes to the horizontal position but the bundle press stage [5] doesn't move up. At the time, as the wire arm comes horizontal, the up down wire is loosen and the bundle registration plate [1] moves down and works as the stopper against the registration operation. Then, the bundle press stage moves up as the wire winding shaft [14] rotates and winds up the up down wire [3] and it stops when the bundle press stage up down limit sensor (PS45) [11] turns ON. The home positions (shelter position) for the bundle registration plate and the bundle press stage are detected by the bundle registration plate home sensor (PS16) [15] and the bundle press stage up down home sensor (PS35) [10] respectively. The over-winding-prevention stopper [13] prevents the over winding since you can move up and down the bundle press stage manually by rotating the knob [9]. II Composition/Operation

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

The bundle press movement is the mechanism to convey the paper to the trimmer section by pressing the paper with the press section to prevent the trimming skew at the trimmer operation after the paper registration operation. A. Mechanism The bundle press movement motor (M17) drives the bundle press section [9] in the main scan direction. When receiving the paper with the bundle press stage [2], the bundle press section [9] moves 100 mm backward from the home position to obtain the paper conveyance path. II Composition/Operation When conducting the bundle registration operation, the bundle press section moves to the appropriate position in accordance with the paper size. The bundle press movement home sensor (PS36) [3] detects the home position of the bundle press section. When the bundle press section moves to the home position, the metal plate [7] gets down the actuator [6] for the trimmer registration sensor (PS55) [8] and obtains the paper conveyance path. The bundle sensor /4 (PS54) [10] is for the paper jam detection.

BUNDLE PROCESSING SECTION

The paper registration operation reforms the skew at trimming. A. Mechanism The bundle registration motor (M12) drives the registration claws [4]. Two registration claws [4] conduct the registration by making the paper [14] contact [3] with the bundle registration plate [13] from the gutter side. In the registration operation, the bundle press section [7] conducts the pressing by moving to the appropriate position in accordance with the paper size. To conduct the bundle registration, the registration claws [4] press the paper until the actuator [2] on the bundle press section comes in the upright position and the trimmer registration sensor (PS55) [1] turns ON. The bundle exit claws [9] are located at the 180 opposite to the registration claws on the belt. M12 rotates in the reverse direction [10] to exit the paper at the paper exit. The home position of the registration claws [4] is detected when the registration claws push the actuator [11] and turns ON the bundle registration home sensor (PS34) [12]. II Composition/Operation

BUNDLE PROCESSING SECTION

A. Mechanism (1) Bundle exit mechanism The paper is exited to the bundle exit tray [12]. The paper exited to the bundle exit tray is conveyed to the front by the bundle exit conveyance belt [1] and stacked. The bundle exit motor (M5) [5] drives the bundle exit conveyance belt [1] via the bundle exit drive belt [4] and the bundle exit belt drive shaft [3]. M5 drives the bundle exit conveyance belt for a specified period of time to convey the paper to the front [13] for every paper exit. The bundle exit tray is expandable. The bundle tray set sensor (PS58) [9] detects whether the bundle exit tray is stored or not. M5 also drives the scrap press plate [11]. In each drive path from M5 to the bundle exit drive belt and the scraps press plate, there is a one-way clutch respectively that switches the rotational direction of M5. Therefore, the bundle exit drive and the scraps press plate are not driven simultaneously. II Composition/Operation

BUNDLE PROCESSING SECTION

In the trimmer scraps press, the bundle exit motor (M5) drives the outward pin [10] via the press claws [9] to move the scraps press plate [5] to the front and press the trimmer scraps. When the belt [6] rotates and the scraps press claws [9] pass the maximum movement position [12], the scraps press claws comes off the pin [10] for the onward route and the scraps press plate returns to the home position [5] by the return auxiliary spring [11]. When it is not brought back to the home position by the return auxiliary spring [11], the scraps press claws drive the pin [2] for the homeward route. The distance from the maximum movement position [12] to the home position [5] is 200 mm. The scraps press home sensor (PS48) [8] detects the home position of the scraps press claws [9].

Operation
Trimmer press control

A. Mechanism The trimmer press is the mechanism to hold the paper at its fore-edge side to prevent the trimming misalignment. There is approximately 5 mm of opening at the home position. The press arms [4] press the paper with the trimmer board [2] when the trimmer press motor (M32) [1] drives and the slide blocks [7] move to the closing direction [8]. M32 detects the completion of the paper press via overcurrent. M32 rotates in the reverse direction to widen the opening to approximately 20 mm before conveying the paper to the trimmer section if the number of the print paper is 16 or more (32 or more for the saddle stitched paper). The trimmer press home sensor (PS53) [6] and the trimmer press home sensor (PS52) [5] detect the home position and 20 mm of opening respectively. II Composition/Operation

TRIMMER SECTION

A. Mechanism The trimmer operation may be conducted improperly due to the damage on the trimmer board if the trimmer board is subjected to the trimmer blade many times at the same position. For this reason, the trimmer board is slid 1 mm backward for sheet cutting each time a job of 700 times trimming is completed. The trimmer board solenoid (SD11) [1] slides the trimmer board [5] with its fixing released by the trimmer press motor (M32). The pinion [3] pushes the rack [4] 0.5 mm every time SD11 turns ON. The rotation of the pinion is transmitted to the rack by the one-way clutch [6] and pushes the trimmer board when SD11 turns ON. The pinion does not rotate and push the trimmer board when SD11 turns OFF by the one-way clutch. Each time a job of 700 times trimming is completed, SD11 is turned on twice to move the trimmer board 1 mm. The trimmer board can be slid up to approximately 26 mm. The main body displays the message on its operation panel when the trimmer board replacement sensor (PS59) [2] turns ON. The trimmer operation is prohibited when the trimming is conducted 700 times since PS59 turns ON. NOTE Changing software DIPSW22-5 to 1 in the service mode, the operation timing of the trimmer board solenoid can be selected among 700/500/300 (700 by default) in the user mode adjustment screen. The barr may occur on the trimmed edge of the paper before the movement cycle of the trimmer board depending on the paper type. II Composition/Operation

Operation

A. Purpose The surplus of the toner used at the printing is recycled to the developing section by the recycling mechanism. The toner circulating in the devise may slightly deteriorate the print quality because the paper dust adhering to the drum at the transfer/separation is mixed in the cleaning section. To maintain the certain print quality, the toner circulation must be stopped and the fresh toner must be used for development. The recycle cut device makes it possible. II Composition/Operation B. Characteristics As the recycle cut unit discharges the non-transferred toner to the outside before it is returned to the developing unit, only unused toner is kept always in the developing unit. It also makes possible to perform the development with the toner in which no paper dust is mixed so that you can maintain the certain print quality. However, the toner consumption is increased because it ejects the used toner. C. Waste toner conveyance path The waste toner sucked from the toner recycle intake [2] of the toner recycle pipe [1] is conveyed to the accumulator [3] via the accumulator hose [10]. The one-way valves are provided at the outlet and inlet of the accumulator to prevent the backflow of the waste toner. The waste toner passing the accumulator is conveyed to the intake [5] of the recycle pump [8] via the hose joint [9] and the hose /5 [4]. The waste toner in the recycle pump is pressurized by the recycle pump and ejected from the outlet [7] to the hose /6 [6].

Operation

A. Purpose The large amount of air is contained in the recycled waste toner. In the waste toner box, the waste toner and the air is separated to recycle the waste toner only. B. Waste toner/air separation mechanism The waste toner [8] conveyed to the top of the 1st recycle container [4] via the hose /3 [10] falls in the 1st recycle container by its own weight and it is accumulated. The air conveyed together with the waste toner is introduced into the hose [5] from the air inlet [3] provided on the top of the No.1 collection box. It provides the area to which the waste toner can fall at the maximum as well as it decreases the content of the waste toner in the air taken to the hose [5]. The conveyance direction of the air taken to the 2nd recycle container [6] is switched upward. Waste toner contained in the air drops into the No.2 collection box by its own weight so that the waste toner conveyed to the filter [2] can be further reduced. The air is conveyed to the filter [2] via the hose [9] and the waste toner is separated from the air definitively, and then the air [1] is exhausted to the outside. II Composition/Operation

OPERATION

bizhub PRO 1050/1050P Theory of Operation Ver.1.0

2. OPERATION
2.1 Operating Environment

The print controller includes a 933-MHz Intel Low Voltage Pentium III CPU to perform high-speed image processing (rasterization). While rasterized image data are sent to the engine, data in the following pages are simultaneously rasterized. Thus, it has 256MB memory by default, and this memory is expandable to 512 MB to accommodate extremely complex print data processing requirements. This design enables the print controller to produce outputs at high speed without causing the print engine to stop in the process even when processing a II Composition/Operation large number of pages. The print controller system software runs on VxWorks from Wind River and is included on the CF(Compact Flash). The hard disk is used for storing configured settings, storing the copiers scanned data and downloaded fonts, and for spooling print data. The scanned data is sent to PCs via the standard Ethernet Network Interface. The transmission and reception of scanned data between the print controller and the print engine is a task of a built-in engine interface (video interface). As well, the serial interface is used for checking software operations/memory, thus giving access to the system in the print controller.
