Medium conveying device and image forming device

Abstract

<P>PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a medium conveying device capable of suppressing disturbance of an image formed on a recording medium while reducing power for conveying the recording medium, and also provide an image forming device. <P>SOLUTION: This medium conveying device includes a pair of first conveying rotational members for conveying, by holding, a sheet-like recording medium on the front surface of which an image is formed, guide members which guide the recording medium to the pair of first conveying rotational members along a curved path by the contact of the recording medium therewith and the slidable movement thereof, which are guided while facing an image-formed surface inward of the path, and which are disposed on both inner and outer sides of the path, respectively, a pair of second conveying rotational members which conveys, by holding, the recording medium to the path and the rotational driving of which is terminated before the recording medium departs from the second conveying rotational members after the recording medium reaches the first conveying rotational members, and a rotary body which is disposed on the inside of the path parallel to the guide member and which is rotated due to the contact of the recording medium with the peripheral surface thereof. <P>COPYRIGHT: (C)2011,JPO&INPIT
【課題】 記録媒体を搬送するための電力を低減させつつ、媒体に形成された画像の乱れが抑えられた媒体搬送装置および画像形成装置を提供する。 【解決手段】 表面に画像が形成されたシート状の記録媒体を挟むことで搬送する第1の搬送回転部材対と、記録媒体が接触して摺れ動くことによって記録媒体を曲がった経路に沿って第1の搬送回転部材対まで案内する、画像が形成されている面を、経路の内側を向けて案内される、経路の内側および外側の双方に配備された案内部材と、記録媒体を挟むことで搬送して上記経路へと送り込む、記録媒体が第1の搬送回転部材対に達した後、この記録媒体が第2の搬送回転部材から離れる前に回転の駆動が終わる第2の搬送回転部材対と、経路の内側に、案内部材と並んで配備された、周面に記録媒体が接触することで回転する回転体とを備えた。 【選択図】 図3
