图像形成装置和记录介质堆叠装置

Abstract

本发明公开了一种图像形成装置和记录介质堆叠装置,该图像形成装置包括:图像形成单元,其在记录介质上形成图像;记录介质堆叠单元,其包括堆叠部件、外侧部件以及支撑部件,该堆叠部件具有堆叠表面,通过图像形成单元形成有图像的记录介质堆叠在该堆叠表面上,该外侧部件位于堆叠表面的外侧以沿着与堆叠表面大致垂直的方向延伸并且可拆卸地安装在记录介质堆叠单元中,支撑部件具有支撑堆叠部件的支撑部分;外侧部件识别单元,其识别外侧部件是否安装在记录介质堆叠单元上;以及控制器,其根据外侧部件识别单元是否识别到安装有外侧部件来控制在记录介质堆叠单元中待堆叠的记录介质的最大数量或记录介质叠束的最大高度。
The invention discloses an image forming apparatus and a recording medium stacking apparatus. The image forming apparatus includes an image forming unit that forms an image on a recording medium; a recording medium stacking unit including a stacking member having a stacking surface on which the recording medium having the image formed by the image forming unit is stacked, an outside member that is located at the outside of the stacking surface so as to extend in a substantially vertical direction to the stacking surface and detachably mounted in the recording medium stacking unit, and a support member having a support portion that supports the stacking member; an outside member recognizing unit that recognizes whether the outside member is mounted on the recording medium stacking unit, or not; and a controller that controls one of a maximum number of recording media to be stacked and a maximum height of stack of recording media in the recording medium stacking unit according to whether the outside member recognizing unit recognizes that the outside member is mounted, or not.
