Abstract

Two cone rollers coupled together in a mirror image feed a sheet in the forward direction only. The lateral driving forces of the cone roller couple are in opposing directions and therefore cancel each other. The roller couple can be used with a single cone roller and not alter the aligning and driving function of the single cone roller.

Cone Roller Couple

Two cone rollers coupled together in a mirror image feed a sheet in the forward direction only. The lateral driving forces of the cone roller couple are in opposing directions and therefore cancel each other. The roller couple can be used with a single cone roller and not alter the aligning and driving function of the single cone roller.

The best alignment results have been obtained with one long friction backup roller for all cone rollers on a shaft.
