Abstract

A drive system for the post-stripping (post transfer) paper transport in a copier. The transport would be an endless belt 1 receiving its drive from the surface 2 of the photoreceptor through an endless drive belt 3 fric- tionally engaging a non-image (side) area of the photo- receptor periphery. This drive belt 3 would directly drive the downstream pulley shaft 4 of the paper transport belt 1. The driving contact area of the drive belt 3 on the photoreceptor 2 would be adjacent in radial location to the copy sheet stripping area 6, Thus, the velocity of the transport belt 3 should closely match the paper speed, i.e., the speed at which the paper 5 is being driven by its attachment to the photoreceptor 2 at the stripping area 6. An axially screw-adjustable split shaft belt pulley 7 can be provided for a fine initial speed adjustment.
