  • Patent number: 10191443
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an openable member rotatable relative to a main assembly of the image forming apparatus; and a supporting member connected between the main assembly of the image forming apparatus and the openable member configured to support the openable member when the openable member is opened. The supporting member includes a first arm member and a second arm member which are slidable relative to each other, a pinion provided on the first arm member, a viscous damper mounted on a rotation shaft of the pinion, a rack provided on the second arm member and engaged with the pinion. By opening the openable member, relative slide movement is caused between the first arm member and the second arm member so that the pinion engaged with the rack rotates and a braking force is produced by the viscous damper.
