Abstract

Copiers which accomplish automatic duplex copying sometimes employ a duplex tray and set separator fingers which extend into the duplex tray for separating sets of copies or books for machines logic purposes. Improved linkage control means for such set separator fingers is shown in the drawing. It includes a compression spring 10 and slide 12 placed into linkage with finger 5 in order to store energy during the closing stroke of solenoid 20 and actuate the separator finger 5 when the correct

Copiers which accomplish automatic duplex copying sometimes employ a duplex tray and set separator fingers which extend into the duplex tray for separating sets of copies or books for machines logic purposes. Improved linkage control means for such set separator fingers is shown in the drawing. It includes a compression spring 10 and slide 12 placed into linkage with finger 5 in order to store energy during the closing stroke of solenoid 20 and actuate the separator finger 5 when the correct

torque level is reached. This arrangement prevents the solenoid from stalling due to the high initial force required to retract the set separator fingers.
