Title: Development apparatus of liquid electrophotographic printer

Abstract: A development apparatus of a liquid electrophotographic printer includes a photoreceptor web having an image area where an electrostatic latent image is formed and a non-image area at both sides of the image area. A development roller is installed to correspond to the image area to which a development electrical potential of a predetermined level is applied, in which developer is supplied to the electrostatic latent image. A squeegee roller removes developer remaining on the photoreceptor web, and an air injection nozzle is installed adjacent to both ends of the development roller. The air injection nozzle injects air to move developer remaining on the photoreceptor web from the non-image area to the image area so that a boundary line between the image area and the non-image area is prevented from being developed due to a difference in electrical potential therebetween.
