A fixing device includes a rotary fixing member; a pressure roller pressed against the fixing member to form a nip in association with the fixing member; and an induction heater, as a heat source, to heat the fixing member. The induction heater includes an excitation coil to induction-heat the fixing member; a side core disposed along an outer circumference in a longitudinal direction of the excitation coil; and a plurality of arch-shaped cores disposed to cover the excitation coil in the longitudinal direction thereof.
|Image forming apparatus|
An image forming apparatus includes: a development device which is provided so as to be detachably attachable to an apparatus body to develop an electrostatic image on a surface of an image bearing member with a developer; an airflow generating device which generates an airflow; a duct which induces the airflow generated by the airflow generating device into the apparatus body; and a support member which supports a lower surface of the development device along a longitudinal direction of the development device; wherein a tubular flow path is formed between the support member and a bottom of the development device such that air flows along the longitudinal direction, and the flow path is connected to the duct.. .
