Type Belt Position Control

In a printer, fig. 1 shows an endless belt 10 carrying type mounted on spaced pulleys 12 and 14, pulley 12 being the drive pulley and pulley 14 an idler, the shaft of which is spring loaded by spring 16 to maintain belt tension.

1p. Both pulleys are contoured to cause the belt to drive downwardly on the pulleys because of the taper of the pulleys. Rollers 18 and 20 act as stops engaging the bottom edge of the belt, to maintain it in the correct operating position. The taper is dimensioned to be below the center line of the belt by an amount a, as indicated in Fig. 2.
