Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1168106A2] The present invention provides a removing apparatus (1) for applying a liquid (16) to a printed sheet (4) and thereby removing toner from the sheet. The sheet has a water-swelling type top layer. As the sheet is dipped in the liquid, it is curved by a sheet curving member (20) for at least 20 seconds. Preferably, the curved portion of the sheet has a radius of curvature of 10mm or less. This allows the dipping operation to be performed in a shorter period of time.
