Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a duplex printing apparatus of an electrophotographic processor, and more particularly, to a duplex printing apparatus of an electrophotographic processor that maximizes the efficiency of duplex printing of paper by providing a plurality of sheet inversion structures.

종래 기술에 의한 전자사진 프로세서의 양면인쇄 장치의 일례를 도 1을 참조하여 설명한다.An example of a duplex printing apparatus of a conventional electrophotographic processor will be described with reference to FIG.

종래 전자사진 프로세서의 양면인쇄 장치의 구성은 기기 본체(1)의 내부에 용지가 적재된 급지카세트(2)와 용지를 낱장씩 공급하기 위한 픽업롤러(3) 및 픽업된 용지의 선단을 정렬하기 위한 레지스터롤러(4)가 설치되어 있고, 이송된 용지에 화상을 형성하기 위한 화상형성장치(5)가 설치되어 있으며, 화상형성장치의 감광드럼(5a)과 대응되어 전사롤러(6)가 설치되어 있고, 전사롤러(6)의 전방에는 화상형성장치에서 정전잠상에 의해 형성된 화상을 정착시키는 정착롤러(7)가 설치되어 있으며, 인쇄가 종료된 용지를 배출하는 배지롤러(8)가 배지대(9)측으로 설치되어 있다.The conventional duplex printing apparatus of the electrophotographic processor is to align the feed cassette (2) with paper loaded inside the main body (1), the pickup roller (3) for feeding sheets of paper, and the leading end of the picked paper. Register rollers 4 are provided, and an image forming apparatus 5 for forming an image on the conveyed paper is provided, and a transfer roller 6 is provided in correspondence with the photosensitive drum 5a of the image forming apparatus. In front of the transfer roller 6, there is provided a fixing roller 7 for fixing an image formed by an electrostatic latent image in the image forming apparatus, and a discharge roller 8 for discharging the paper on which the printing is finished. It is installed in the (9) side.

용지의 이송경로상에는 아이들 롤러(10)가 구비되어 있고, 용지의 진행상태를 반전시키는 용지반전부(11) 반전롤러(12)와, 반전된 용지를 다시 레지스터롤러(4)측으로 이송시키는 다수개의 이송롤러(13,14,15)가 설치되어 있다.An idle roller 10 is provided on the conveyance path of the paper, and the inverting roller 12 of the paper inverting portion 11 for inverting the advancing state of the paper and a plurality of the papers for conveying the inverted paper back to the register roller 4 side. Feed rollers 13, 14 and 15 are provided.

미설명 부호 16,17,18,19는 위치검출센서이다.Reference numerals 16, 17, 18, and 19 are position detection sensors.

이와 같이 구성되어 있는 종래 기술에 의한 인쇄동작을 설명한다.The printing operation by the prior art which is comprised in this way is demonstrated.

용지가 픽업롤러(3)에 의해 급지되면 용지는 레지스터롤러(4)에 의해서 선단이 정렬되어 화상형성장치(5)로 이송된다. 이송된 용지는 정전잠상에 의해서 화상이 형성되어 정착롤러(7)로 이송되고, 히팅롤러와 압착롤러로 구성된 정착롤러(7)에서 화상이 정착된다. 이후 용지의 단면인쇄모드인 경우에는 배지롤러(8)를 통해배지대(9)로 배출된다.When the sheet is fed by the pickup roller 3, the sheet is fed to the image forming apparatus 5 with the tip aligned by the register roller 4. The conveyed paper is formed by an electrostatic latent image and conveyed to the fixing roller 7, and the image is fixed by the fixing roller 7 composed of the heating roller and the pressing roller. Then, in the single-sided printing mode of the paper is discharged to the medium 9 through the discharge roller (8).

또한, 양면인쇄모드인 경우에는 용지의 이송경로를 용지반전부(11)측으로 전환시켜 용지가 용지반전부(11)로 이송되도록 한다. 용지반전부(11)에서 인쇄면이 전환된 용지는 다수개의 이송롤러(13)(14)(15)들에 의해 다시 레지스터롤러(4)측으로 이송된다. 레지스터롤러(4)에서 선단이 정렬된 용지는 단면인쇄모드시와 동일한 경로를 거치면서 후면의 인쇄가 실시되며, 인쇄가 종료된 용지는 배지롤러(8)에 의해 배지대(9)로 배출되는 것이다.In addition, in the duplex printing mode, the paper feed path is switched to the paper inverting portion 11 side so that the paper is transferred to the paper inverting portion 11.

그러나 상기한 바와 같은 종래 기술에 의한 전자사진 프로세서의 양면인쇄 장치는 용지의 인쇄면을 전환시키기 위하여 별도의 용지반전부를 갖는 등 용지전환구조가 차지하는 용적 및 이에 소요되는 부품이 많아 기기의 사이즈가 커지고, 중량이 무거워져 제품의 경박단소화가 어렵다는 문제가 있다.However, the two-sided printing apparatus of the electrophotographic processor according to the prior art as described above has a large volume and parts required for the paper switching structure, such as having a separate paper inverting portion to switch the printing surface of the paper, thereby increasing the size of the device. As the weight becomes heavy, there is a problem that it is difficult to reduce the thickness of the product.

또한, 종래에는 용지를 전환시키는 경로가 하나이기 때문에 용지의 양면 인쇄에 소요되는 시간이 지연되는 문제가 있다.In addition, conventionally, since there is only one path for switching the paper, there is a problem that the time required for duplex printing of the paper is delayed.

이와 같은 문제점을 감안하여 안출한 본 발명의 목적은 장치의 구조를 간소화함으로써 장치가 적용되는 전자사진 프로세서의 크기를 경박단소화하려는 것이다.The object of the present invention devised in view of such a problem is to simplify the structure of the device to reduce the size of the electrophotographic processor to which the device is applied.

본 발명의 다른 목적은 양면인쇄 경로를 다양화시켜 양면인쇄의 속도를 향상시키려는 것이다.Another object of the present invention is to improve the speed of duplex printing by diversifying the duplex printing path.

The paper having the reversed printing surface is conveyed to the second conveying roller 36 side and conveyed to the register roller 24 again, and the printing operation of the rear surface is performed.

전면인쇄가 실시되는 두 번째 인쇄용지는 첫 번째 인쇄용지에 이어서 연속적으로 이송이 이루어지도록 급지가 이루어져 정착롤러(27)에서 전면의 화상이 정착된 후에 제1 위치검출센서(37)에서 두 번째 인쇄용지의 진입이 감지되면, 제1 가이드 레버(33)는 본래의 위치로 복귀되어 두 번째 인쇄용지는 제1 반전/배지 롤러(31)에 의해 배지대(28)측으로 배지된다. 제1 위치검출센서(37)에서 두 번째 인쇄용지의 후단부를 감지하면 제1 반전/배지 롤러(31)는 역회전되어 두 번째 인쇄용지는 제2 이송롤러(36)측으로 이송된다. 제2 이송롤러측으로 이송되는 용지는 인쇄면이 반전된 상태이기 때문에 레지스터 롤러(24)로 이송되어 동일한 인쇄동작에 의해 후면 인쇄가 실시된다.The second printing paper on which the front printing is performed is fed to continuously feed the first printing paper, and then the second printing paper on the first position detection sensor 37 after the front image is fixed on the fixing roller 27. Is detected, the first guide lever 33 is returned to its original position so that the second printing sheet is discharged to the discharge stage 28 side by the first reversal / discharge roller 31. When the first position detection sensor 37 detects the rear end of the second printing paper, the first reversal / medium roller 31 is reversely rotated, and the second printing paper is transferred to the second feed roller 36. Since the sheet conveyed to the second conveying roller side is in a state where the printing surface is inverted, the sheet is conveyed to the register roller 24 and the back printing is performed by the same printing operation.

첫 번째 인쇄용지의 후면 인쇄가 실시되기 전에 세 번째 인쇄용지의 전면인쇄가 실시되도록 첫 번째 인쇄용지와 두 번째 인쇄용지의 이송속도가 제어부의 시스템 제어에 의하여 각 모터(41)(42)(43)들에 의하여 조절되며, 세 번째 인쇄용지의 전면인쇄후에 첫 번째 인쇄용지의 후면인쇄가 완료되면, 세 번째 인쇄용지는 제1 반전/배지 롤러(31)에 의해 배지대(28)측으로 배출되는 것이다.The transfer speeds of the first and second printing papers are controlled by the system control of each motor (41) (42) (43) so that the front printing of the third printing paper is carried out before the back printing of the first printing paper is carried out. The third printing paper is discharged to the discharge tray 28 by the first reversing / discharging roller 31 when the rear printing of the first printing paper is completed after the front printing of the third printing paper. .

인쇄가 완료된 용지를 메일박스(40)로 배출시키는 경우에는 정착 롤러(27)에서 인쇄가 완료된 용지가 제1 위치검출센서(37)에서 감지되면 제1 가이드 레버(33)가 회전되어 용지를 제2 반전/배지 롤러(32)측으로 안내하게 되고, 제2 위치검출센서(38)에서 용지의 선단부를 감지하게 되면, 제2 가이드 레버(34)가 회전되어 용지를 메일박스(40)측으로 안내하게 됨으로써 용지는 메일박스로 수납되는 것이다. 이러한 메일박스 기능은 단면인쇄모드나 양면인쇄모드에 공히 사용가능하다.When the printed paper is discharged to the mailbox 40, when the printed paper is detected by the fixing roller 27 at the first position detection sensor 37, the first guide lever 33 is rotated to remove the paper. 2 guides toward the reverse / medium roller 32, and when the second position detection sensor 38 detects the leading end of the paper, the second guide lever 34 is rotated to guide the paper to the mailbox 40 side. As a result, the paper is stored in a mailbox. This mailbox function can be used in both single-sided printing mode and double-sided printing mode.

이상에서 설명한 바와 같이, 본 발명에 의한 전자사진 프로세서의 양면인쇄 장치는 별도의 용전반전을 위한 스페이스를 갖고, 용지의 반전을 위한 경로를 줄여서 전체 기기의 사이즈를 줄일 수 있는 효과가 있다.As described above, the duplex printing apparatus of the electrophotographic processor according to the present invention has a separate space for inversion of electricity and has an effect of reducing the size of the entire apparatus by reducing a path for inversion of paper.

또한, 용지의 반전 경로를 복수개(본 발명 실시예에서는 2개소) 형성함으로써 양면인쇄 효율을 극대화시킬 수 있는 효과도 있다.In addition, it is also possible to maximize the duplex printing efficiency by forming a plurality of paper inversion paths (two places in the embodiment of the present invention).
