  • Publication number: 20190243288
    Abstract: A transfer device includes an intermediate transfer belt configured to bear a toner image and rotate, a transferor configured to contact the intermediate transfer belt via a recording medium and form a transfer nip, a guide configured to guide the recording medium conveyed to the transfer nip, and a pressure reducing device. The intermediate transfer belt is shaped as an endless belt. The pressure reducing device is configured to reduce pressure-contact force of the transferor against the intermediate transfer belt as the recording medium advances in the transfer nip. Therefore, a trailing end of the recording medium does not move toward the intermediate transfer belt when the trailing end of the recording medium has passed the guide.
