Abstract

Proposed is a motorized photoreceptor module for color xerographic printing. The module operates in a manner similar to that of a drawer on a CD player. Color registration is a concern, wherein any large mechanical shock applied to the machine can and most likely will disrupt its alignment. Correspondingly, errors in skew, on the order of tens of microns, will cause successive color separations to register beyond acceptable limits. A main source of mechanical shock is encountered every time an operator or service representative pushes an extracted photoreceptor module back into the machine. By having this function motorized, mechanical misalignments caused by such shocks are prevented and the photoreceptor is returned exactly to its original position.
