Abstract

Disclosed is a set-up paper feed algorithm using one pitch mode per paper tray to set the defaults for all pitch modes for each of the multiple paper trays in an electrophotographic printer or copier. The algorithm replaces the usual fifty-sheet run to set the timing for each pitch mode and each tray. Unlike the normal modified feed that adjusts each copy sheet in +- one millisecond feed out time, the disclosed algorithm allows for large jumps in timing adjustment for the fifty test sheet run. The software allows all pitches to be run without shutting down the machine after each pitch, thereby saving time at setup.
