Abstract

In electrophotographic printing machines, it is necessary to transport paper, with or without an image, through the mechanisms of the machine. The transports do this using belts, rolls, and shafts. Usually the roll assembly is some combination of roll and shaft fixed together mechanically. This roll assembly can be enhanced by the collet assembly 10 shown on the drawing.

In electrophotographic printing machines, it is necessary to transport paper, with or without an image, through the mechanisms of the machine. The transports do this using belts, rolls, and shafts. Usually the roll assembly is some combination of roll and shaft fixed together mechanically. This roll assembly can be enhanced by the collet assembly 10 shown on the drawing.

Outer collet 16, interfit over inner collet 12 is interposed between roller 14 and shaft 18 internal to the roll 14. A circular nut 20 is in threaded engagement with the inner collet 12 so as to secure the entire assembly 10 as a rigid structure, considering that proper torque is applied to the nut 20.
