Abstract

Some xerographic reproduction machines use a vacuum stripper to remove a sheet of paper from a photoreceptor after transfer of a toner image to the paper. The vacuum stripper usually includes a plenum assembly having circular perforations or slots which align with circular perforations in a transport belt mounted to move over the plenum assembly. See U.S. Patent 3,819,175 for an arrangement showing a plenum assembly with circular perforations.

Some xerographic reproduction machines use a vacuum stripper
to remove a sheet of paper from a photoreceptor after transfer
of a toner image to the paper. The vacuum stripper usually
includes a plenum assembly having circular perforations or
slots which align with circular perforations in a transport
belt mounted to move over the plenum assembly. See U.S.
Patent 3,819,175 for an arrangement showing a plenum assembly
with circular perforations.

To increase air flow through the vacuum stripper, it is sug-
gested that the plenum assembly with slots be used in combina-
tion with a porous belt instead of the belt with circular
perforations therein.
