Abstract

In a xerographic duplicating machine, a photoreceptor belt system having a photoreceptor belt which is drawn by vacuum against a flat surface as the belt moves around a closed path has an improved platen cloth extending over the sur~ face for preventing the belt from contacting the surface, the open area of the cloth being between 20% and 80% of the total area thereof. Nylon netting having an open area equal to approximately 40% of its total area has been found to be particularly satisfactory.
