Method for manufacturing conductive fabric
A method for manufacturing a conductive fabric is undertaken via a fixing device which has a plurality of working sections. According to an arrangement of the conductive yarn disposed between a first flexible base and a second flexible base, the working sections of the fixing device are extended to form a plurality of fixing points and the other working sections are retracted without forming the fixing points, thereby fixing the conductive yarn between the first and second flexible bases with a dot-like spaced pattern to obtain conductive fabric products having different conductive yarn arrangements without replacing the fixing device..

Fixing device and image forming apparatus
A fixing device includes a rotary member comprising a heat generation layer; an excitation coil generating magnetic flux, disposed along an axial direction of the rotary member and opposite the rotary member, to heat by induction the heat generation layer; a first demagnetizing coil layered on the excitation coil and generating magnetic flux in a direction reverse to and cancel the magnetic flux that the excitation coil generates; a sheet size detector to obtain a size of a recording sheet on which an image is to be formed by passing through the rotary member; and a drive controller to control driving of the first demagnetizing coil. The drive controller drives the first demagnetizing coil after information including the sheet size information has been obtained..
