Abstract

In copying machines employing a constant velocity transport (CVT) roll to move the document being copied across the machine exposure slit, the document, following scanning, is typically deposited onto or in a receptacle provided in the top cover of the machine. From there the document must be physically removed by the operator. If the document is slid while being removed, the document and possibly the machine cover may be damaged or scarred. If instead the document is lifted by the operator to remove it, the document may be deformed, particularly in the event that the operator bends or dog ears one corner of the document for this purpose.

OPERATOR ASSIST GUIDE FOR CONSTANT VELOCITY TRANSPORT EXIT (Cont'd)

In copying machines employing a constant velocity transport (CVT) roll to move the document being copied across the machine exposure slit, the document, following scanning, is typically deposited onto or in a receptacle provided in the top cover of the machine. From there the document must be physically removed by the operator. If the document is slid while being removed, the document and possibly the machine cover may be damaged or scarred. If instead the document is lifted by the operator to remove it, the document may be deformed, particularly in the event that the operator bends or dog ears one corner of the document for this purpose.

To avoid this, and referring to Figures 1 and 2, an operator assist guide 5 is proposed, guide 5 forming in effect a ramp 6 at the exit or discharge side of the machine CVT output roll pair 4. Thus, as the document is being discharged by roll pair 4, the document lea...
