Abstract

A document transport 1 suitable for transporting both individual documents and books at a controlled rate past an optics system in a copier. In a document mode, single documents are inserted into a nip defined by two rollers, 2, 3. These rollers in conjunction with a second pair of rollers 4, 5 move the document at a fixed rate past a stationary optical system 6 which transmits incremental portions of the document to a charged photoreceptor for document imaging.

A document transport 1 suitable for transporting both individual documents and books at a controlled rate past an optics system in a copier. In a document mode, single documents are inserted into a nip defined by two rollers, 2, 3. These rollers in conjunction with a second pair of rollers 4, 5 move the document at a fixed rate past a stationary optical system 6 which transmits incremental portions of the document to a charged photoreceptor for document imaging.

In a book copying mode, a cover 7 and the two top rollers 2, 4 coupled to the cover are pivoted away from the copier about an axis defined by a hinge at the rear of the copier. A lead edge of the book is placed on the roller 3 and the cover 7 is closed to apply a normal force on the book. The book is driven by the nip defined by roller pairs 2, 3 and 4, 5. The books and/or documents may be reciprocated back and forth across the optical system 6 if multiple copies are desired.
