  • Patent number: 11001463
    Abstract: A medium supply apparatus includes a box member and a lid. A medium is stored inside the box member. The box member is inserted into and extracted from a body of an image forming apparatus, and has a length in an extraction/insertion direction that is longer than a length of the body in the extraction/insertion direction. The lid is provided on a back side of the body in the extraction/insertion direction of the box member to cover at least an upper part of a portion of the box member that projects from the body. The lid includes a first member, a second member, and a first lug. The first member is movable in the extraction/insertion direction with respect to the body. The second member is connected to the first member so as to be relatively movable in the extraction/insertion direction with respect to the first member. The second member is moved by being pushed by the box member which is inserted into the body. The first lug is provided on the second member.

  • Publication number: 20210094783
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a drawer unit, a sheet inverting unit, a sheet guide plate, and a projection. The drawer unit is drawable from an apparatus body. The sheet inverting unit is disposed in the apparatus body, and pulls a sheet into a lower portion of the drawer unit to invert the sheet. The sheet guide plate is disposed on the sheet inverting unit to face the drawer unit, and includes a recess extending in a pull-out direction of the drawer unit that crosses a direction in which the sheet is transported. The projection protrudes toward the recess from a portion of a lower surface of the drawer unit facing the sheet guide plate near a pull-out start point in the pull-out direction and on a rear of a transport area of the sheet.
