Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/189118
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided is a fixing device with which it is possible to improve the durability of an endless belt. A fixing device 8 is provided with a heater 110, a rotor 120, an endless belt 130, a nip-forming member 140 for forming a nip part NP with respect to the rotor 120 across the endless belt 130, and a sliding sheet 200. The sliding sheet 200 has a first portion 210 sandwiched between the endless belt 130 and the nip-forming member 140, and a second portion 220 extending from the downstream end of the first portion 210 in the direction of movement of the endless belt 130 in the nip part NP, the bending rigidity of the sliding sheet 200 being greater than the bending rigidity of the endless belt 130. The second portion 220 has a bent part 260 that is bent so as to come in contact with the inner circumferential surface of the endless belt 130. The bent part 260 urges a portion of the endless belt 130 that is located downstream of the nip part NP from the inside of the endless belt 130 toward the outside.
